Berry Sweet freebie hybrid card

I know that we all have those friends or neighbors who we don't thank enough for the kind things that they do, whether it's mowing the grass while they mow theirs, watching your kids while you run errands or maybe gave you some of their fresh garden grown produce - do you thank them and be done? Most times I do too and decided that I would make just a small thank you card for just those ocassions.

I used a 5 x 7 card and did some inking around the edges. I am the ink pad queen:) and use it for everytihng. This time around I used a black ink to give the edges a bit of a pop. You can do this as much or as little as you would like, play with it a bit and see what effect you like the most.

Then I cut out the printed page and cropped the pieces to fit the card. I like to make them bigger than the actual card so that the trimming can be done easily and not worry about printing and it's too small!

I added both layers and cut out the word art. I inked that piece as well to give it a little something extra and as an extra touch added some foam stickers to the bottom to give it some depth.

I also added a small little button to the word art which gives it that final finish.
