(Unless otherwise indicated, I used SNAIL Adhesive throughout)

1. Score 8-1/2" x 5-1/2" Lucky Limeade card stock at 4-1/4"; fold away from scoreline to create card.

2. Use Stampin' Write Markers to color rubber stamp to coordinate with DSP; stamp on Very Vanilla card stock and cut out shape with Framelits Die (I used the second from the smallest size); cut another shape from Calypso Coral card stock (I used the third from the smallest size).

3. Use Petal Cone Die to cut banner shape from Very Vanilla card stock.

4. Use Stampin' Sponge and Soft Suede Stampin' Pad to distress edges of all pieces, including the banner and Framelits shapes.

5. Adhere 4-1/2" x 3-1/4" DSP to front of card; adhere 4" x 2-3/4" DSP over the first piece.

6. Stamp "A NOTE OF THANKS" on banner; use Bone Folder to curl and distress paper (use it like you would use scissors to curl ribbon). When it's soft and pliable and just starting to come apart at the edges, use Mini Glue Dots to adhere it to the front of the card near bottom of top piece of DSP.

7. Adhere smaller Framelits shape to larger shape. Wrap a piece of ribbon around your fingers two or three times, cut ribbon leaving a small tail at each end; open prongs of brad and slide center of ribbon loops between the prongs, pushing the ribbon as close to the base of the brad as possible. Close prongs and attach to Framelits shape. Adhere Framelits shape to front of card with Stampin' Dimensionals. Fluff ribbon however, you like.

Happy Stampin' Fun! And not nearly as difficult as it looks. The most time-consuming part of this project is painting the stamp -- it's fairly detailed.
