Watercolor Words... Just For You

Here's a sweet, super-simple card for you today!!

Even though there aren't lots of embellishments, this stamp set
really makes this card stand out!

And....  I just love this color combination - Calypso Coral and Old Olive!!

We start our card with a Whisper White card base, then added a layer of Calypso Coral Card stock, followed by another layer of Whisper White Card stock.

Next, we stamped those gorgeous flowers (in Calypso Coral ink) and leaves (in Old Olive ink) from the Watercolor Words Stamp Set on our top layer of Whisper White Card stock.

Next, we stamped "just for you" (which is also found in the Watercolor Words Stamp Set) and punched it out with the 2 1/2" Circle Punch.

Finally, we tied a "cheater bow" using the Calypso Coral Seam Binding Ribbon.  

Just put a strip of the ribbon on the card front and tack it to the back with adhesive.  Then, tie a separate knot with the ribbon around this strip - so simple!!  

I always like to keep the ribbon on the bolt when I'm tying this knot, so that I get just the right look I'm going for.  It's so much easier than working with a tiny piece of ribbon to make that knot!
