Mojo Monday meets Gingham Garden

Today I created a Clean and Simple (CAS) Thank You card inspired by the Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge (MOJO305) designed by Julee Tilman.  I love using sketches to inspire me.  This card was super easy –  and could easily be created using DSP paper scraps.

The sketch shows stitching around the edges of the card to create a border.  I used the Framed Tulips embossing folder to create the border on my card.  Then I pulled out Gingham Garden DSP to use for the three rectangles.  This DSP has a lot of flowery patterns.  I like the more subtle prints much more so I chose two of those subtle prints to pair up with one small piece of the floral print.  I think the little blue flowers on the floral print coordinate really well with the tulip border.  Do you agree?

Now for the finishing touches…I added Island Indigo ribbon and tied it around the front of the card.  This is done by adding a small slit along the seem of the card for the ribbon to "thread" through.  This also helps to keep the ribbon in place!  

Now to finally stamp!  I used the sentiment from the Lots of Thanks stamp set and stamped it using Island Indigo ink.  I punched it out using the large oval punch and then layered it on an Extra Large Oval punched from coordinating DSP.  The ovals are mounted to the card with stampin dimensionals.

While this card was super easy I think it looks clean and fresh.  Did you see the envelope liner matches the card?  The Envelope Liner Framelits makes lining the envelopes a snap.
