Fun Thank You Card!

This card was inspired by the creator of Papertrey Ink, Nichole Heady. She posted a background paper made with one of her sets. For some reason, I remembered that particular concept when I decided I needed a thank you card.

I got to work and here's what I came up with.



I had to use an eyelet somewhere because I just bought a crop-a-dile. That thing makes it so easy to set an eyelet...no need to pull out a hole punch, the hammer, the setter and to find the mat to hammer on. Just this one tool! And it did a great job of punching a hole in the ribbon, too.

Yes, I know that it's fall and this card looks super springy, but I don't care! It's still cute!

Project specifics:
Ink: Summer Sun, Ruby Red, Certainly Celery, Basic Black (Stampin' Up!)
Stamp Sets: Little Lady, Green Thumb (Papertrey Ink)
Paper: Certainly Celery (SU!), White
Accessories: Crop-a-dile, eyelet (Oriental Trading Co), Word Window Punch (SU!), ribbon (unknown)

That is really cute--how easy! Though I don't have one of those crop-duster thingies. Need one. Memo to Santa: crop thingy.
