Steps:

1. Fold an 8-1/2" x 11" piece of orange cardstock in half with the short edges together (figure A).

2. Age the orange cardstock with a brown stamp pad (figure B).

3. Tear a 3" x 5" rectangle from ivory paper using a ruler as a guide.

4. Age the ivory paper with the brown stamp pad (figure C).

5. Cut a green paper rectangle slightly larger than the ivory paper rectangle.

6. Cut a rectangle of pink paper for placement below the ivory rectangle.

7. Cut a 3" x 1" rectangle for grass then snip a zigzag cut across the top.

8. Adhere the grass to the ivory rectangle (figure D).

11. Apply the words "thanks" spelled from alphabet stickers (black text on clear circles) onto the piece of ribbon (figure G).

12. Punch holes in the four corners of the ivory rectangle using a needle tool and insert a pink brad in each corner (figure H). Punch a hole in the upper right corner of the pink rectangle and lower left corner of the pink rectangle.

13. Raised ribbon with brads:

  • Punch a hole in the center of the ribbon on the left side and insert a brad through this hole and the left side hole on the pink rectangle.
  • Punch a hole in the center of the ribbon on the right side and insert a brad through this hole and the right side hole on the pink triangle.
