So Very Much, Flower Shop, Thank You Card, 2017 Sale-a-Bration

Here's another card I found while surfing the web.  I wanted to find something to make using the "So Very Much" set.  I wanted to make a few more cards with it before it retired at the end of the month.  

I changed the flower and the decorative paper on here, plus I changed the background layer. I do love white on white but this card needed a touch of color since the decorative paper was so light in color.  You can see the original card here.  

The base is a folded half-sheet of Blushing Bride.  Next I took a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Whisper White and stamped the "Thank You" with VersaMark and heat embossed it in gold.  Then I cut off 3/4" from the bottom and an angled cut along the "you".  I just eyed the bottom of the "Y" and the swirl on the end of the "u" and cut.  You don't need to be perfect here.  It kind of matters how far you have that opening on the left side.  You need to find an object  that will cover both slices.  I
used a flower from the "Flower Shop" set.  I have a feeling that set is going to retire in June.  I will miss that set. I've had a lot of fun with it.  And if it stays, you will see more cards in the future made using it!!!

I took another piece of white cardstock cut 4" x 5-1/4" and I taped a piece of decorative paper cut the same size to it.  Then I took Dimensionals and set the top and bottom panels in place.  I added a Dimensional to the center of the flower and set it in place on the left side.  The original card had a couple of other flowers added to the right of the large flower but I thought the image on the paper took care of that for me.  I was happy with how it looked.    And that was it.  Another quick card.

I do want to note that I did use 4" x 5-1/4" piece of decorative paper (mine was from the Blossoms & Bliss pack), I was going to use a scrap piece but the Dimensionals allowed you to see under it and the scrap piece looked ugly, so I went with a larger piece.

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
