Card #1

Here's my first card made with the March SSS card kit.  I started with some kraft cardstock for the base and decided on a top folding card style.  I cut a small strip of the pink patterned paper and attached it 1/2" from the bottom.  The green gingham paper is backed with a foam panel that layers on top.  This gives the card some dimension and interest because now it's not flat.  I used a couple of label stickers one on top of another and stamped the Thanks word in the middle.  This was a little tricky because the labels are glossy and the ink easily smears.  

I was careful to let it dry before I wrapped some gold cord around the top a few times and tied a double bow.  I had a rustic wood heart element in my stash so I attached it with some strong glue right in the center of the bows.  It's a simple card, for me at least, but I think it will be nice to have on hand when I need a thank you in a hurry.  

I carried the  pink color and flower theme to the inside panel with a sticker of blooming rain boots.

So, that ends today's post with my first card.  See you tomorrow!
