Petal Palate, Thank You Card, 2018 Occasions Catalog

I found this fun card on Split Coast Stampers.  I had the Decorative Series Paper (DSP) so I thought I would run with it. This will put a tiny dent in the thank you cards I need to make.  I am having fun making them because I'm not making them all the same. I think I would go crazy, it would be very boring after a while making the same card over and over and as many times as I need.  UGH!  So, mixing it up works for me.  And who's going to know or even care that I didn't make the same card for everyone???

Click on the photo and you can get a closer view of the cards. 

The base of this card is a folded half-sheet of Basic Black.  On top of that is a piece of Whisper White cut 4" x 5-1/4" and on top of that is a piece of the "Sweet Soiree" DSP cut 3-7/8" x 5-1/8".  I had cut a piece of copier paper the same size and marked on it where I wanted the card to angle out. I marked the right side with on dot and I marked the left side with two dots.  The bottom piece is marked at 3/4".  The next mark is at 2-3/4".  I cut all three at the same time. I just cut from one mark on the left to the single mark on the right and repeated for the other mark. I now had two pieces to tape in place on top of the Whisper White piece. It was easy to tape it, just line up the top and side edges and then line up the bottom and side edges.  If the tips on the right don't line up right, not a problem, the flower will cover it.  I stamped my words close to the left side. I wasn't sure how much space I would have on the right side of the words, as you can tell on the blue flowered card (that was the first one I made).

Next I took my stamped and die cut flower from the "Petal Palate" set  (I have LOTS of those ready to color) and I used my blender pen and Marina Mist on the top left one, I used the Daffodil Delight Blends on the top right one and I used Rich Razzleberry and a blender pen on the bottom one.  I think my favorite one is the bottom one.  I had colored the leaves using the Old Olive Blends pens.

I die cut some of the leaves from the "Petal Palate" bundle.  The dies for that are called "Petals and More".  They were cut from Whisper White card stock.  The Dazzling Diamonds glitter paper would be pretty too but I have more white on hand than I do the glitter paper.  I cut two branches for each card. I set them in place behind the flower.  I set the flower in place using Dimensionals. 

Add a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Whisper White card stock to the inside and the card is done!!

It's a very pretty card and I will be happy to be sending it off in the mail soon.

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
