Here’s a quick thank you note I put together – it uses all Stampin’ Up! materials – all of which have been on my shelf for ages! (I’m still on the mission to use up some of my myriad supplies). The cards come pre-cut to go with the “Fresh Cuts” stamp set. I used the retired color “Sage Shadow” – a very cool wintery green shade. The ribbon was a lucky match – I had it left over from a couple of Christmases ago and it matches the Sage perfectly.
Note: finished card size is 4” x 4”

Using the embossing ink pad, stamp the design pattern on the green cardstock, and cover with the white embossing powder. Heat with the heat gun to set.
Stamp the greeting on the front of the card using the green ink.
Mount a ribbon around the front of the card following the folded edge. Tie a bow using the Bow-Easy, and mount it in the center of the ribbon using one or two glue dots.
Apply adhesive around the edges of the FRONT of the embossed green panel, and mount it facing forward on the back of the front of the card, so that the image shows through the cut outs of the card.
Punch a flower from the green scrap, and a tiny flower from the white scrap and mount them in the center of the flower cut out, using glue dots.
Since it costs more to mail a square card than a standard rectangle, I used my A2 envelopes to send this card. Since the card is only 4” x 4”, it fit just fine!
Thanks for stopping by!
