Thanks for You card

I just love the First Edition patterned paper as a background. I'm not sure why because I love really bright colors and this is not. I think it must just be my love for the printed word. In the future, we will not have print on paper like we do now. It will all be electronic. Don't get me wrong. I love my Kindle also but the printed word has a special feel that you can't get with a tablet!
Materials needed:
Serene Silhouettes stamp set (#1273324)
Chalk Talk stamp set (#130634)
Coastal Cabana card stock 4 1/4 x 5 1/2" plus
Whisper White card stock
First Edition patterned paper (#121878)
Coastal Cabana ink
Crushed Curry ink
1/4" Daffodil Delight Grosgrain Stitched ribbon (#126872) about 10"
3/16" Corner punch (#119871)
Extra large Oval punch (#119859)
 Stampin' Dimensionals (#104430)
Glue Dots (#103683)

1. Using the Corner punch, round the corners of the patterned paper. Adhere it to the Coastal Cabana card stock leaving a small border all the way around.
2. Stamp the image from Serene Silhouettes in Crushed Curry ink. Cut it out. Add Stampin' Dimensionals to the back and place it on some Coastal Cabana card stock. Cut out around the image leaving a Coastal Cabana border. Adhere this to the left side of the patterned paper.
3. Stamp the greeting from Chalk Talk stamp set on white card stock. Use the Extra Large Oval punch to punch out the greeting. Add Stampin' Dimensionals to the back and place it to the top  right side of the patterned paper.
4. Cut about 10" of ribbon and tie a bow. Use glue dots to adhere it to the bottom right side of the patterned paper.
5. Adhere the card front to a card base. Add a greeting or note and you are done! Find someone to be grateful to today. I'm sure there are many in your life that deserve a thank you.

If you haven't turned in your shoe boxes to your local collection center for Operation Christmas Child, you still have a few days left. The last collection day isn't until Monday, Nov. 25. If you live near a Chick-fil-a, check them out to see if they are collecting shoe boxes for OCC. Our local ones are collecting tomorrow, Nov. 23 until 3 pm. With every shoe boxes you bring, they will give you a coupon for a free Chick-fil-a sandwich.
