Welcome to Ribbon Inspiration Saturday...Stamp Simply Style! This week we were to design a "dressed up" Thank You card, then take it down a notch or two to make it a CAS (Clean and Simple) design! Fun!
Here are my designs. I started out with My Mind's Eye "Everyday Flair" decorator paper. Some of my all time favorite prints include both polka dots and gingham, so this pad really suits my taste!
I also had a bit of fun with Spellbinder's "Fanciful Flight" butterfly die. I die cut the butterfly from the decorator paper, then traced the actual metal die onto vellum. I then cut on the trace lines, glued it to the die cut decorator paper butterfly, and trimmed the excess vellum from the edges.
I also took some of the vellum, ran it through the Cuttlebug with a folder, then used that as a textured background for my design.
The dressed up card features additions of May Art's 5/8" white lace, Melissa Frances White Pearls, and the JustRite "Fancy Frames" sentiment (marked down!) stamped onto a JustRite Spellbinder "Nested Frames" die.
All of today's highlighted supplies are from The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store.

ETA: there was a question in the comments if there is yellow polka dots/gingham in the paper pad? Yes, there are two sizes of a golden yellow polka dot, a solid golden yellow, and a graph type print in yellow. Sorry...no gingham in yellow. But, there is red in gingham.
