Four You: Thank You + Hello

Happy Ruffle Trim Banner Cards by Stampingville

No, that's not a typo in the headline! It's the Four You stamp set, a new Stampin' Up! greeting set with four of the most commonly used greetings for handmade cards. I'm making multiples of the Thank You card for a client, but had to sneak one in with "hello" just for fun.

This card uses very few supplies - great for someone just getting started. (Also great if you are making multiples of a card!)

Hello Ruffle Trim Banner Card by Stampingville

The bright and cheery patterned paper is the new I Am Me Designer Series Paper collection. The patterns are fun and trendy and the colors are versatile enough to make it a go-to paper.

The card itself measures 4-1/4" x 4-1/4". By creating the card base this size, I can let the banner and ribbon hang off the card (even more than shown here) and it will still fit nicely in a standard envelope.

For the card base, I've used Naturals White card stock - another go-to favorite of mine. This lightly speckled paper is available in white and ivory, made from recycled paper, yet it's the same quality paper as all Stampin' Up! card stock. All this and it's economical too. Love that!

Notice the cute heart detail on the banner? I punched a single heart from a scrap of So Saffron card stock and lightly sponged it around the edges with So Saffron ink. Before adhering it to the banner strip, I used the negative of the punched piece as a stencil and sponged inside the heart shape to create hearts on the banner.

And check out that adorable ribbon (squee!!!!). It is so, so cute. It's even cuter in person. It has that darling ruffle on one edge, but the other edge is actually elastic making the entire ribbon stretchy. IT'S SO FUN!

Technically, it's called Ruffle Stretch Trim and it comes in all the new In Colors. I'm going to need them all. What? Oh, now you need it all too? Yeah, I should have warned you that might happen. Sorry ;)
