This is a very simple card—a minimum of coloring and a simple “layout” if you want to call it a layout, LOL.

So, here’s what I did: I cut out a Labels Twenty Two Nestabilities die cut with Classic White card stock, stamped the image from From the Desk Of with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, and colored only the ribbon with this Copic Collection:

Poppy Collection:


Then I layered it with a Labels Four Nestabilities die cut and popped it up over a ribbon tied around in a bow. I stamped the sentiment on a Tailor Made Classic Tags Die and attached it with some white twine. My patterned paper is Authentique Delightful.

I couldn’t resist doing the inside, which consists only of another sentiment from the set.



Easy peasy, right? Right! So, that's it for me. Be sure to take a look at what the rest of the design team has for you.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Get those creative juices flowing — it could help you win some fantastic polymer!Hope to see you taking on the challenge!
