Poppystamps Petit Four Border Thank You!

Hi Friends! I hope you are having a great day and the sun is shining wherever you are!  Today I'm helping out at the Boy Scouts Carmel Apple Sale.   We are so blessed to have a family of scouters who have relatives who own an orchard.  Every year they donate some hand dipped carmel apples as a fund raiser for the scouts.   I hope they go fast!!!  

Today it's my turn to post on the Poppystamps Blog. The DT always takes turns displaying their creations and you can find daily inspiration there.    I made a fussy looking card that was really simple using just one die - the Petit Four Border - and a colored note card.

I cut the border several times from off white card stock and glued them in rows on the note card. I topped it off with a bow and a button threaded with some twine.
To make the sentiment tag, I used the "Thank You So Much" stamp. Before I inked it up I put a piece of tape over the "so much". Next I dipped it in ink, removed the tape and stamped the "Thank You" sentiment. I trimmed it, used a corner rounder and a hole punch to fashion it it into a tag. This looks so elegant, but was really so easy.

Thanks for stopping by for a peek!  I hope you will visit the Poppystamps blog regularly for die inspiration.  Also on Oct. 5 - World Card Making Day there will be a blog hop with prizes!  Have a beautiful day and enjoy your day!

Apple season--my very favorite. This is a beautiful card, and it looks like it was much more difficult to make than you described. That is a super border.
