Chalk Talk/Backyard Basics Quick and Easy Card

I have been dying to use the new 1 1/4" Burlap Ribbon so I had to come up with a card layout that could use a little bit of it.  I wanted a simple but all occasion card that I could use for any birthday, thank you or any time I needed to drop a line to a friend.
To make things easier, I used one of the notecards from the Note Card & Envelopes set that you can purchase from SU.  The cards are already pre-cut and pre-scored so all you have to do is create your masterpiece on top of this card base.  I started with a 4 3/4" x 3 1/4" Crumb Cake layer which I embossed using the Woodgrain Embossing Folder.  Then I stamped the "I'm so grateful THERE'S YOU in the world" greeting from the Chalk Talk stamp set in Calypso Coral ink on Whisper White card stock and punched it out using the Extra-Large Oval Punch.  I added it to a Calypso Coral card stock layer and cut it out using the Chalk Talk Framelits.  Next, I cut a small piece of the Burlap Ribbon, created a little loop with the ribbon and adhered it to the back of the Calypso Coral layer with a glue dot.  I attached it to the Crumb Cake layer using double dimensionals to make sure it stood out.  I added Pearl Jewels to the Chalk Talk Framelit/Calypso Coral piece and added a bird in Island Indigo from the Backyard Basics set to complete the card. 

If you are looking for a quick and easy way to make a group of cards, the Note Cards & Envelopes set is a great addition to your crafting collection.  Stampin' Up! just announced that they will begin selling pre-cut and pre-scored card stock in several basic colors to help crafters especially during the holiday card making time.  It's called Cut & Ready Card Bases and you can see the d below to learn more.
