Special Reason, Thank You Card

I'm still having some fun with the "Special Reason" stamp set and dies before they retire at the end of the month.  I have found so many cute cards to make and it makes me sad that it's retiring.  So I plan to make a few more cards using the set before I move onto something else.

This was a super easy, quick and adorable card to make.  I found it on Pinterest.  You can see the original card here.  

After finishing the card I noticed that I used Old Olive for my green instead of Pear Pizzazz.  I also used Old Olive for my words (on purpose) instead of Tempting Turquoise.  I thought the green should be tied in with the leaves.  

I can't believe how simple this card was to make.  The base is a folded half sheet of Whisper White cardstock.  Then I cut a 3-1/2" x 3-1/2" piece of Tempting Turquoise cardstock.  On top of that is a 3-1/4" x 3-1/4" piece of Whisper White cardstock.  Next I stamped the veins of the leaves on a scrap piece of Old Olive cardstock.  I die cut them out.  I also die cut the flower on the Whisper White panel piece.  Once the die cutting was done I taped the flower to the Tempting Turquoise piece and then added the two leaves.  I wrapped and then tied a piece of white Baker's Twine around the layered panel.  I taped that panel in place.

I inked up the words from the "Flourishing Phrases" set.  I did like the words used in the original card but I didn't have them, plus I needed a thank you card.  I still need a few more thank you cards, so I'd better get moving on it!!!

This was a very fun card to make. I couldn't believe how quick and simple it was.  I think it would make an excellent get well, birthday, thinking of you, Mother's Day, and even a sympathy card.  A VERY versatile set!  I LOVE that!!!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
