Quick Cuttlebug Cards

I've not been doing much crafting at the moment, I split up with my boyfriend this week so I've not been in the mood to craft much, although at least I'll have more spare time to craft now, see there's a bright side to most things! A bloke asked me out for a drink while I was doing my food shopping in Tesco the week before, I was so shocked! Im thinking now that I should have said yes! Hahaha.

I thought I'd share with you a set of very quick thank you cards which I made quite a while ago, they are very plain and simple, which as you have seen is not usually my style!
They were made just by embossing the top 2/3 of the card with the embossing folders, scoring 2 lines to fit the ribbon and sentiment in, then embossing the bottom 1/3. The sentiments are stamped in a colour that matches the ribbons. I cut a slit each side of the sentiment then threaded the ribbon underneath it, wrapped the ribbon around the card and tied it in a bow.
