A Secret Garden Thank You

I was playing with the Secret Garden set and the dies that go with it.  You have gotta LOVE these dies.  No more cutting out anything from that set!!!  It's quick and it's easy!  I LOVE both of those words when making cards!! LOL

Today I also played with the Smoky Slate ink pad.  What a lovely shade of gray that is!  I did some direct from the ink pad to the paper and some stamped off on the background.  I stamped a 1/4 sheet of card stock and I cut it in half so I had two cards.

The leaves are made from Basic Black card stock using the leaf die in the die set.  

It's hard to see it but the center panel is set in place using Dimensionals and so is the flower and the words in the top left.  

I used some black ribbon to hide the seam of where the two pieces of Whisper White card stock join.  I was also able to get 2 cards from the one 1/4 sheet of embossed white.  So I got two quick and easy cards with very little effort!  Don't you just love that?  

Oh and everything on this card is in the current catalog!!  Nothing retired here!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,

I have the Secret Garden stamp set too and love it. I plan on getting some of the smoke colored paper as well. I love your card - the black, white, and gray look SO NICE together. Thanks for sharing this with us.
