Summer Afternoon thanks

I have so many gracious customers and when they order I always like to include a little card that they can use to include their receipts as a thank you. I like to write the message inside on a post-it from Stampin' Up (the 4x4 size is perfect!) or let the sentiment on the card send the message.  But it has to be simple which makes it easier to make a bunch and it also just happens to be the style I like....

This is one I did for this month.  Take whisper white and die cut it using labels collection framelet, (Or use the ones you saved from the cards you may have diecut as a frame in the past) stamp the image from Summer afternoon- hostess set with Staz-On Black or Memento Tuxedo Black.  Color in with crumbcake markers, more mustard and cajun craze for the pot, certainly celery and wild wasabi for the leaves and grass and real red and daffodil for the bird (on the belly but hard to tell here). Lay the crumbcake ribbon where you want it on the crumbcake base card, mount the diecut with dimensionals then tie the ribbon on the side as shown.  Real simple card and you can use this idea with any image that fits inside the diecut of your choice.    I thought about embossing the base card but it seemed too fuxxy and distracted from the central image. But you could round the bottom corners, use a stickpin on the ribbon, embellish away to your level of comfort!
