A Thank You Card for Someone Nice!

This is the thank you card I made to go with the "ASK" frame I made for my friend and fellow demonstrator Denise. I used the Stampin' Up! "Pocket Silhouettes" set and the "thank you" from the "Wow Flowers" set.

I stamped the "Pocket Silhouettes" flower image on glossy card stock with VersaMark and used clear embossing powder. After the paper cooled I sponged Sage Shadow over the entire area. I added layers of card stock behind it. I chose the colors that were in the "Autumn Vine Designer Series Paper. I am REALLY loving that pack of paper!!!

Originally I had the layers stacked on top of each other like I would normally do but I wanted to shake this card up a bit so I gave the layers a bit of a twist look to it by turning each color a bit as I taped it in place. I think it gave the card a bit of flair!!

The main part of the card is a half sheet of Chocolate Chip card stock. I cut a piece of Sage Shadow 5-1/4" x 4" and stamped the "Polka Dot" background on it using Sage Shadow ink. Then I cut a piece of the decorative paper 3" x 4-1/4" and taped it in place on top of the Sage Shadow. I taped on a piece of Chocolate Chip grosgrain ribbon where the two pieces meet.

I used the scallop punch and layered a couple of circles to it. The "Thank you" was stamped first and then punched out. For the flower I used a rhinestone from my brads. I had gotten a bad brad, the stone was stuck in it crooked and there was no way to fix it so I took the stone out and used Crystal Effects to "glue" it in place on the flower of the "Thank You."

It was a very fun card to make.

Wanda -- this is just beautiful. I used this stamp and DSP for a card swap recently. I wish I had seen yours first. I love the way you fanned the color rectangles behind the pocket sillhouette stamp. It certainly helps it stand out against the DP. I love that DP, but it is pretty busy.

You are the bomb!!! SMB

Beautiful card!! LOVE how you swirled the stack of cardstock; it really makes the main image pop. Watch for lots of CASEing with this one. TFS!
