Today I am using one of my favorite color combinations: red and kraft. I tucked a die cut from ODBD Beautiful Borders before I laid the gingham on top with Scor-tape. I stamped the "u" in Creamy Caramel and then again in Close to Cocoa and the third time in Creamy Caramel - I was trying for a solid "u" but loved this effect because it looks just like cork to me. Happy surprises. :) To get the thank u perfectly centered, I used Spellbinders A2 Matting Basics A to cut it just right - this is so much easier than trying to center your stamp or trimming it with a paper cutter. I matted the sentiment and then popped it all up. Another trick I used on this card is to cut tiny strips of the red cardstock to thread through my buttons for a perfect match. Lastly, I used my Bow Easy to create my little gingham bow.
I continued the sentiment and design into the center of the card:
Thank you so much for looking!
