Mocha Thanks

Good morning, Friends! I hope you all had a most wonderful Christmas! I know I sure did! And, of course, I ate way too much! Yum!! I think my brother leaves today so that will be sad. I am not sure what our plans are for the day. I am thinking that I will need to do some laundry. 

Today's card is one that I did with my stamp club this month. This is a super easy card. I wanted to keep it really simple so that the beautiful Morning Mocha paper would take center stage! I started with a card base of Soft Suede card stock. Then I added a piece of Very Vanilla card stock. Then I took a piece of Crumb Cake and scalloped one end of it, added a piece of Soft Suede and then a piece of the Morning Mocha designer paper. Then I tied a piece of the Soft Suede taffeta ribbon around this and popped it up on the card. Then I took a piece of Very Vanilla card stock and ran it through the Big Shot using the Designer Frames embossing folder. I cut around the oval and lightly sponged the edges with Crumb Cake ink. I stamped the greeting from Sincere Salutations in Soft Suede onto a scrap piece of Crumb Cake and punched it out with the extra large oval punch. I lightly sponged the edges with Crumb Cake in and glued it inside the oval. The oval is popped up onto the card. The final touch was to add five small pearls. There you have it! Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!
