Background Bits Simple Thanks

While at the monthly stamping get together with my downline this week, I got to borrow her Background Bits host set again. I had used it once before on my anniversary card, but wanted to make a simple Thank You card this time.

After I got home and started putting things together, I decided to add some quick sponged color to make the image pop. And then of course, I had to add an embellishment because, well....shiny!

This is a VERY simple card to put together. If you are in need of a bunch of thank you cards to have on hand, this is the one for you!

Here's the "How To"
 Image: Shimmery White 2-1/8" x 2-3/8"
 Mat: Basic Black 2-1/4" x 2-1/2"
 Card base: Shimmery White 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" scored & folded at 4-1/4"
  1. Using Basic Black Archival ink, stamp floral image on image panel and set aside to dry. Stamp border and greeting on card base.
  2. Sponge So Saffron and Calypso Coral over image when dry, then adhere to black mat.
  3. Wrap ribbon around and tie a square knot, trimming ends at an angle.
  4. Adhere image to card with dimensionals.
