So Very Much, Avant-Garden, Thank You Card, 2017 Sale a Bration

I LOVE this big "Thank You" in the free Sale-a-Brations 2017 catalog.  It takes up so much space that you can get by with little to no additional stamping.  I'm sure you're wondering how that could be.  Click here to see a thank you card I made for a birthday gift I received.  And click here to see the card I made for a Christmas gift I received. I REALLY like that thank you card! And today's card was done with stamping!

I stamped my image by lining up the block (my set is a wooden one) on the right and bottom so the words were over to the right and bottom to give me more room on the left and top to add an image.  Or to add something punched or die cut.

I stamped the flower from the "Avant-Garden" set, using Sweet Sugarplum ink. Then I stamped it again on a scrap piece of Whisper White card stock and fussy cut it out.

I took the stem and curved it so it would bend towards the words.  If I would have left it as it was it would have been heading towards the left side and I didn't want that look.  That is one of the nice things about the clear stamps, you can manipulate them to a degree and they bend back!

I stamped the stem and leaves using Pear Pizzazz.  And that was it.  I added the flower on top with Dimensionals and I taped the Whisper White focal piece on a folded half piece of Rich Razzleberry.

I think it's a very elegant looking "Thank You" card.  It's too bad this image is a Sale-a-Bration one. That means it's not going to be available after March 31st.  So it's best to use it a lot now while it's still current!! And the same with the "Avant-Garden" set too!

Thank you SO much for stopping by today,
