Elegant Thank You Card


Here's something I made to be clean and simple.  All the products are from Stampin' Up.  I used the Bella Blue paper kit from Scrapmaster's Paradise.  I also used some satin ribbon that she had a ribbon share for.  It seems thicker and doesn't fray quickly like the other satin ribbon I've tried.  It was really fun to work with.  She's got a couple more ribbon shares going on now if you want to check them out here.  In that same post she also talks about the different kinds of Stampin' Up ribbon. I went ahead and bought the ribbon share because I felt like it was a good value and a way to try out the colors and see what I liked.  I think it was a good purchase - you can do 1 or 2 yards of each color. 

I stamped using Whisper White Craft Ink from the Happy Moments stamp set.  Then I did some faux stitching with the Uni-Ball Signo gel pen.  I love that thing! 

Sorry posting has been a little scarce and I've been bad about checking my e-mails.  We are in the process of buying a house.  Things are going well now so I feel like I can say something.  We are set to close on Sep 15th and life has been just crazy! *LOL*
