Gated Thank You

Today’s card features a couple of the newly released Background stamps, papers and ribbon from Rubbernecker Stamp Co.  The backgrounds can be found HERE.  The card is a gate fold and measures 4 1/4” square.  Loopy brads were used at the center of each flap to secure the ribbon before the ends were tied in a bow.  I did heat the ends of the ribbon to add a little interest.  The metal/epoxy sentiment plate is attached with dimensional foam tape to the left flap.


Paper: Prism Suede Brown Dark, Mystic Light and Mystic Dark

7gyspies Designer 6 x6 paper pad Nottinghill

Ink: Distress Faded Jeans, Tea Dye & Walnut Stain

Stamps:  Wildflower Background, Abstract Floral Background

Accessories:  7gypsies ribbon/Savannah, All My Memories metal/epoxy sentiment tag, Loopy Brads
