Gingham Thank U

Hello, it's Diana today for the CCNS Gingham challenge!  Today I am using one of my favorite color combinations,  Red and Kraft colors.

I tucked a die cut from ODBD Beautiful Borders before I applied the gingham ribbon on top with Scor-tape.

I stamped the letter "U" in Creamy Caramel and then again in Close to Cocoa and the third time in Creamy Caramel. I was trying for a solid "U", but loved this effect because it looks just like cork to me.  Happy surprises! To get the Thank U perfectly centered, I used Spellbinders A2 Matting Basics A to cut it just right. This is so much easier than trying to center your stamp or trimming it with a paper cutter. I matted the sentiment and then added foam pads to pop it all up. 

Another trick I used on this card is to cut tiny strips of the red cardstock to thread through my buttons for a perfect match.

For the final touch, I used my Bow Easy to create my little gingham bow.
