Avant-Garden, So Very Much, Thank You Card

Okay.  Yes, the "So Very Much" set was still sitting on my worktable.  But I actually had to go to the shelf and take out the "Avant-Garden" set. I had put it back where it belonged.  I know, I was kind of shocked myself.  I was looking for it on my worktable!!! I must have had a confusing day to actually put something away the same day I used it!!! LOL

So, lets get on to this super easy and fun card I found on Pinterest.  You can see the original one here.  I only made one change, I did a fussy cut on the top flower.  I thought the card needed a little dimension to it.   

I stamped the "Thank You" on a folded half sheet of Whisper White cardstock.  I wanted to use a lighter color than black so I used Early Espresso.  I had to laugh after I stamped the words, they look black!!! LOL  But it's okay, it's a nice clean crisp image and I'm happy with it.  

If you look at the original card you will see the flowers on the bottom have some marks on them.  I wasn't sure what it was. I thought maybe a shadow. But I stamped my first flower, the one on the top and then I stamped the one on the middle right.  Then I thought, I should make a fussy cut flower for the top left one, so I stamped on a piece of scrap and I saw that mark on my flower.  It was part of the tail of the "u".  Fortunately my flower with the mark on it was on scrap paper, so I just stamped another one.  So, if you are going to remake this card, make sure you clean off your stamp after you stamp over the word part.  I didn't really clean off the stamp, I just stamped on some scrap paper until the stamp was fairly clean.  I stamped the last flower and then moved on to the flower center.  

Next I fussy cut the flower out.  I set it aside and stamped the stems and leaves.  I added the fussy cut flower using Dimensionals and that was it. I thought it was a very simple, quick and clean card to make!  I think I'm going to miss the "Avant-Garden" and the "So Very Much" sets at the end of March.  You can look for them in my web store on April 1st.  No fooling!!! LOL

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
