A Flourishing Phrases Thank You Card

Today I got out the new "Flourishing Phrases" set and thought I would see what I could do with it.  It's a pretty set but not as easy to work with than I thought it would be.  

I stamped the flower using Calypso Coral and then I stamped another one using Flirty Flamingo.  I cut out that piece.  Then I stamped part of the flower using Daffodil Delight, I only stamped part of it because all I needed was the center.  I cut that piece out too.  I set the center and the next flower layer in place using Dimensionals.

I die cut the leaves using Pear Pizzazz card stock.  And that border was cut using Basic Black card stock.

I stamped the words with the black Memento ink.  And that was it.  This was a quick card to make, even with the fussy cutting.  

There is a little trick I used to glue the die cut pieces.  I saved a strip from my glue dots and scribbled white glue all over it and then set the strip on top.  Then I set it in place on top of the card stock.  I did the same with the leaves.  If you don't use glue dots much, you can let the glue on the strip dry and then remove it so you can reuse the strip or you can use waxed paper.  I use waxed paper because I don't use a lot of glue dots.  

I do like how this card turned out.  Now I need to see what else I can do with this set.  It's kind of expensive when you buy both the stamp set and the dies, even if they are at a bundled price.  So with that in mind, I need to fine something else to do with it!!!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
