JAI48 and CD89 - Thank You card

Now that Christmas is over, don't we all need lots of Thank You cards? I'll be showing you my Thank You cards over the next few days. I hope this will give you some ideas and tips for getting your Thank You cards finished and in the mail. My mom asked me to make her a couple cards for her generous neighbors. So I started with Just Add Ink's Sketch Challenge #48. This sketch is perfect for quick cards, just add some ribbon or other accent to dress up your card. And my colors come from Color Dare's CD89 -- Soft Suede Cherry Cobbler, and Old Olive.

Oh, and this card also has a Sneak Peak from the Occasions Mini catalog that starts Jan 4th. See that emboseed Cherry Cobbler strip at the top? I created that with the new Framed Tulips Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.

Here's a tip: If you want the look of a large Scallop Border, but don't have a punch or the Tasteful Trims die, just use your circle punches. I punched 5 circles with my 1-1/4" circle punch, then used temporary adhesive to get them spaced correctly on my Old Olive piece. For different look, try using your Scallop Oval punch.

Please let me know if you have any questions. Thank you for stopping by!
