The Good Things in Life Card

For The Good Things in Life card, start with a piece of Thick Basic White card stock, 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2 inches, scored at 4-1/4″. This will be the card base.

Next, look in your scrap piles for strips that are 1/2″ wide and varying lengths. You’ll need 6 of these in coordinating colors, as well as a larger piece 1-3/4″ wide and approximately 5″ long.

Cut a ribbon about 5″, or the length you need to tie a bow around the 1-3/4″ wide scrap. First, stamp your sentiment from the Butterfly Gala stamp set in black ink about 1″ from the bottom of your banner piece. Secondly, use a banner punch, or cut the banner bottom with paper snips. Tie the ribbon around the top of the banner. Lastly, add a few embellishments for accents.

Now that the banner for the sentiment is ready, cut banner ends on your 1/2″ wide strips. Lay them out on your card so you can create your desired pattern before attaching them. Space them about 1/2″ from the top and bottom of your card, with about 1/4″ between the strips for even spacing. If your strips are narrower or wider than 1/2″, you may need to adjust the measurements. Adhere the strips, then add your sentiment banner with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
