A Wow Flowers Thank You

I absolutely love the new In Colors, so when I had to make a thank-you card for my sister-in-law and brother-in-law (hi Sonia and Vince!), those were the first colours I reached for.  I already had the new Wow Flowers stamp set in mind for this card, and it worked out well.  This stamp set makes it easy to make a nice card…you can make a great background with the flower stamp in seconds!

I used one of the label holders from the new Styled Silver Hodgepodge Hardware.  It matches the Designer Label punch perfectly.  Instead of using the brads (that are included in the kit) to attach it to the card, I used ribbon instead.  This gives a completely different look than using the brads…I love it!
Since I don’t have any Baja Breeze ribbon (yet!), I used the Baja Breeze reinker to die some 1/4″ white grosgrain ribbon to match.  (I hope to post a tutorial soon that will show you a couple of different ways to dye your ribbon!)

I used my new Scallop Edge Punch, and used my paper piercer to pierce each of the scallops at the bottom.  Hope you are enjoying the new Catalogue & Idea Book as much as I am!
