For this thank you card I started with a pink card and added the patterned scrapbook paper background. I found a coordinating oval font greeting punchie (SU) in my stash and sponged its edges in pink. I adhered it to a green punched oval (SU) and then to a scalloped oval punchie from vellum. I cut a piece of deep rose seam binding and folded it in half and crossed the ends. I added a small piece of double sided tape where they crossed to keep the two lengths together and added another piece to adhere it to the front of my card. I added 3D foam tape to the back of my greeting and positioned it over the fold seam binding! Pink and green is my favorite colour combination so I am inclined to really like this card and it soft background and greeting with a bit of punch with the seam binding!! Therese

So for this card I trimmed the gift wrap and glued it to scrap paper to give it a bit of weight and then trimmed it to size for my green card. As foil is want to do you can see the little areas where the glue was a little heavier which I found a bit disappointing. I hoped that they would be less visible when the glue dried but not really. Anyway, I added a silver ribbon from top to bottom and tied the ends together on the front. After trimming the ends, I added silver shimmer paint to the JOY on this laser printed greeting which I had in my stash. It is a fun font to use for large greetings. I ran my tracing wheel on all four sides before mounting it to the front of my card using 3D foam tape.
