Special Reason, Flourishing Phrases, Thank You Card

While still playing with the "Special Reason" set and the "So Detailed" Thinlits.  I am going to be very sad when it retires at the end of the month.  Especially since I found so many fun cards to make using it.  And I am very serious about my stamp purchasing from the new catalog.  It's going to be scaled back so I can play with the sets I have.  I also used the "Flourish" thinlits dies for the leaves.

So lets talk about how the card was made.  I used a folded half-sheet of Whisper White card stock.  I used the "Falling Petals" embossing folder.  

I cut a 2" x 5-1/4" piece of Whisper White card stock for the tag.  I punched the top and added a Sweet Sugarplum ribbon to it.  I did have to trim off 1" on the bottom before I taped it in place.  I liked up the doily piece and then added the tag.

I die cut the flower using the Sweet Sugarplum card stock.  The leaves were cut using Old Olive card stock.

I glued the flower in place and then tucked in the larger leaves.

I stamped the words from the "Flourishing Phrases" set.  I trimmed it up and then added the leaf.  I set it in place using Dimensionals.  

It is a very simple card to make.  I found it here on Pinterest.  I changed the colors but kept most of the layout.  I don't do tag cards very often and I really do like the tag on this one.

Thank you SO much for stopping by today,
