Today I needed to make a thank you card. I was hoping to find a very large worded "thank you" in my stamp sets but this was the largest one I had. So I had to make it work. I die cut it and also die cut the oval scallop. I much prefer the punches over the dies for these shapes. It takes longer to cut these out than it did to punch them.
I had a piece of the "Blooms & Bliss" decorative paper (DSP) sitting on my worktable and I thought I should try to use it up. God forbid I just put it away!!! LOL
I looked on the package of the DSP and got the colors used on the paper. The base of my card is Mint Macaron. I added a layer of Sahara Sand and then a trimmed piece of Island Indigo. The circle/ring of Island Indigo was a left over piece from making a spinner card. I hated to toss those out. They are perfectly round!!! I taped the DSP to the Island Indigo and taped that to the Sahara Sand and then taped that to the Mint Macaron card base. Then I took Dimensionals and added them to the back of the ring. I set the ring in place and then embellished it with the "Botanical Builder' flower and some leaves I had in my stash from the "Rose Garden Thinlits" set.
I set the flower in place using a pop up glue dot. I'm running low on Dimensionals. UGH! The words are from the "Flourishing Phrases" set and I set them in place using Dimensionals.
This was a fun card to make and I think my friend is going to like it!
