No Worries – Thanks!

e4cb4d65-54ae-4c5b-a5e9-5100c4a1e366I had the privilege of taking part in a CTMH consultant card swap for the new Seasonal Expressions II idea book.  I received lots of great cards from my sister consultants using the four featured paper packets.  I really enjoyed the beachy theme of the No Worries paper packet so I chose that as my paper, but I didn’t want to focus on the retirement sentiments includued in the coordinating stamp set.  Instead, I decided to pull in the stamp set featured in the No Worries CArdmaking Workshop You Way Kit. This stamp set has both a Thanks & Happy Anniversary sentiments.

This card may look familiar if you saw last month’s cards.  I really liked the simplicity of this pattern and the fact that it can be very simple and basic or you can dress it up.

This card uses a background colored cardstock – I used Bamboo – (depending on your patterned papers, you don’t even need this), then 2 strips of paper 4 x 1 3/4″, plus a single strip that is 4 x 1 1/2″. Top these strips with a 1/2 x 5 1/2″ (I used the wood grain pattern), then a 2 1/2″ Bamboo square, a 2 1/4″  Sapphire square (I distressed both squares).  I also used the Flower Market Cricut cartridge for the wreath  – cut from Champagne cardstock and the ‘thanks’ banner – cut from White Daisy.

The ‘thanks’ is stamped  in Desert Sand and I distressed the edges of the banner with Desert Sand as well.
