Sweet Thanks

 Today's card is a quick and fun thank you card featuring supplies from Lawn Fawn. Since it fits the theme of Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge, I'll be entering it there.

My concept for this card was to create something that looked a bit like a sweet bakery, so I decided to make it look like the sentiment was piped out of frosting with a piping bag.

I started by stamping the piping bag from Baked With Love stamp set onto some marker paper in black ink. I also stamped a tiny heart from the same set in the middle of the bag. I colored it in very simply with Copics, then I carefully cut it out with a pair of scissors.

I pulled out my Bigshot and die-cut a stitched rectangle out of some cream-colored cardstock. I cut the same rectangle out of the chocolate striped paper from Lawn Fawn's Let's Polka Mon Amie petite paper pad. I then used a Stitched scallop edge die to create a decorative edge. While I had my Bigshot out, I used the strawberry striped paper to cut out the Scripty Thanks, as well as a couple of small hearts.

I adhered all of the elements together, using a combination of my standard adhesive, Tombow liquid glue and foam squares. I tied a piece of white ribbon around the top of the panel and then adhered it to a pink card base with foam tape.

As a last touch, I scattered 3 enamel dots around the card.
