I got a few gifts, too, which were not expected, but absolutely appreciated! I wanted to send thank you notes to my friends who came out to celebrate with me. I grabbed the "All Things Thanks" stamp set and was thrilled to see that there was a perfect sentiment for a birthday thank you card!
I started with a strip of the Party Animal Designer Series Paper. I'm so glad this DSP includes Pacific Point. I love that color, but I rarely to work with it. I also love how it pairs with Emerald Envy! I adhered a 1-1/2" by 5" strip of the DSP to a 3-3/4" by 5" Whisper White panel. I stamped the sentiment--"thank you for making my birthday happy"--in Pacific Point near the bottom right of the Whisper White panel. I adhered this to a 3-7/8" by 5-1/8" piece of Emerald Envy Card Stock.
To finish the card, I tied a length of Emerald Envy 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon around the bottom of the panel and then adhered this to a lengthwise-cut Pacific Point Card Stock card base.
