With Gratitude Card

Sometimes a photo will show you what the eye can't see.  I took eleven photos of this card before I was happy with the final result.  The first set of pictures revealed that I needed to trim the ribbon shorter.  The next set came out very crooked.  Finally the third set came out great.  Thank goodness for digital photography. 

This With Gratitude Card was made for The Paper Players colour challenge.  The colours for this challenge are lucky limeade, calypso coral, and daffodil delight.  I used three patterned papers from Stampin' Up!.  The limeade and daffodil papers are from the Summer Smooches dsp.  The coral paper is from the Everyday Enchantment dsp. 

With Gratitude Card Directions:
  1. Make card from cream cardstock or use ready made card.  Finished size: 4.5" x 6.25".
  2. Trim six paper strips .75" wide and 4.25" long.  Align papers face down in desired order. Make sure pieces will fit on card, trim as needed and then secure together with tape.  Hint: I found it works best when you tape each piece to the next piece individually.  I tried taping with one long piece of tape and the pieces would buckle. 
  3. Wrap and secure ribbon around strips and adhere to card.
  4. Stamp sentiment (Verve Stamps, Thankful Accents, vs-09-049) with classic stampin' pad in lucky limeade, punch sentiment with 2" circle punch, layer with scalloped circle, and adhere with stampin' dimensionals. 


  1. This is one of my favorite go-to layouts, and how fun that you were able to incorporate all those fun DPs and colors! So glad you were able to play with the Paper Players this week!

  2. Fantastic! LOL....I think we are our own worst critic when it comes to our work. I'm sure it was perfect before, as it is now ;)

  3. Love those strips of dsp - and I love the style of the sentiment you've chosen - really sweet! Thanks for playing along with the Paper Players this week!
