- Fold an 8-1/2" x 5-1/2" piece of Delightful Dijon Cardstock in half to form the card base.
- Put the "t", "h", "a", "n", "k", and "s" stamps from the Brushstroke Alphabet Stamp Set vertically onto a long acrylic block (I used the H Block). Stamp it onto the top, left side of a 3-7/8" x 5-1/8" piece of Very Vanilla Cardstock using the Chocolate Chip Classic Stampin' Pad.
- Stamp the stem stamp from the Touches of Texture Stamp Set three times to the right of the "thanks" using the Emerald Envy Classic Stampin' Pad (see picture for placement).
- Stamp the smaller, outline flower stamp onto the top of each stem using the Chocolate Chip ink pad. Stamp the alpha texture stamp on top of each flower using the Delightful Dijon Classic Stampin' Pad.
- Stamp the bee stamp above the left flower at an angle with the Chocolate Chip ink pad. Color the bee in the the Delightful Dijon marker from the 2016-2018 In Color Stampin' Write Markers.
- Attach a 3-7/8" x 1" piece of Moroccan Designer Series Paper (DSP) across the bottom of the stamped, Very Vanilla piece.
- Wrap a 6" piece of Emerald Envy 3/8" Ruched Ribbon around the top of the DSP piece, and attach the ribbon ends to the back of the Very Vanilla piece. Tie a 4" piece of the same ribbon to the right side of the attached ribbon, using a single knot. Trim the ribbon ends at an angle.
- Attach the stamped piece to a 4' x 5-1/4" piece of Early Espresso Cardstock, and then attach it all to the Delightful Dijon card base.
