Here is the 2nd card I got to teach at Seminar last year.  Again, it's simple, smart and very sophisticated!

Here are the approximate measurements, however, keep in mind you could re-create this simple card in any size!

I started with a piece of PURPLE cardstock approximately 7 x 5 1/2.  The 5 1/2 is the width of the card.  This piece ends up being 4 1/4 x 5 1/2.

The PATTERNED piece of paper is approximately 3 x 5 1/2.

The GREEN strip of paper is 1 1/2 wide and approximately 6 inches long.  I cut this longer so I could trim it down.

The GREEN INSERT card is approximately 3 3/4 x 4 1/2.

First, let's make the insert.  WAY easy!  I used the large hole on my Crop-a-dile for this.

I flipped the card over and the photo below shows the back view.

This ribbon technique is one of the very first I learned as a cardmaker and I'm surprised how many cardmakers aren't familiar with it!  I just figured everyone knew about it.  I use it often I'm sure you've noticed by now!

So the insert is done.  How easy was that!  I think another GREAT idea would be to attach a GIFT CARD to the bottom portion of this card.  You could use photo corners, cut a couple of slits or even use rubber cement to attach it.

The card itself is also very easy. I start with the accent strip first.

There are so many GREAT tweaks you can make to this card ... I hope it leaves you feeling inspired.
