This card was made using the last of the thin strips that were in my scraps of this Designer Series Paper (Comfort Cafe, retired). I just lined them up on a piece of Cajun Craze card stock that was sitting on my work space and glued them down. Then I designed the card around that piece of card stock. I made the flower using the Floral Frames framelits (127012) and snipped the petals using my scissors. The center is one of the retired Dahlia Adornments, a button would work, too. The "Thank You" comes from the Lots of Thanks stamp set (129690 c, 129687 w). The ribbon is retired Midnight Muse 3/8" Stitched Satin. I chose Crushed Curry card stock for my base. When I put all the elements together I decided I needed to add a layer of Midnight Muse card stock (retired). So, I had to cut off some of the Cajun Craze card stock.
This created a scrap of card stock that I couldn't just throw in the trash and presented my next card design.
I layered my scrap on a piece of Crushed Curry Card stock, stamped the same expression on it and then punched the edge using the retired Scallop Trim Border punch. Some more retired Midnight Muse 3/8" stitched satin ribbon was used. Then I embossed a piece of Midnight Muse card stock using the Zig Zag embossing folder (133738).
If I had it to do over I would have used my Big Shot and the zig zag edgelit in the Finishing Touches Edgelits (127010) instead of the Scallop Trim Border punch. But I didn't think of that edgelit until later in the day. Check back tomorrow!
