Petal Palatte, Thank You Card, 2018 Occasions Catalog

I was SO happy to find that this set will be in the new 2018-2019 Stampin' Up! catalog.  I'm still working on my need for 30+ thank you cards.

This card was an easy one.  I found on on Pinterest that I liked but I didn't make it the same way. I was drawn to the flower being in the left corner, the dots and the lacy looking border thing.  The original card has a bird on it too. I did like the bird but I liked the look of keeping things simple. 

The base, actually the whole card is a folded half-sheet of Whisper White card stock.  

I stamped the flower piece and die cut it.  I set it in the corner to see where to stamp the leaves.  I used Old Olive, stamped once and then stamped again.  I did that 3 times for a total of 6 bunches of leaves. 

I colored the flower using the Calypso Coral Blends pens.  I colored the leaves using the Old Olive Blends pens.  

I die cut the black lacy image. I did use some double stick paper with it to cut it out so it became a sticker.  My sticker paper is a little old and the lacy thing didn't want to stick very sell, so I headed it up with the embossing heat tool and the image is now very secure.  I forgot to stamp the Calypso Coral dots so I ended up doing it after the lacy thing was set in place.  Not fond of how that turned out, but it is what it is!

I set the flower piece in place using Dimensionals and I stamped the "thank you" using Basic Gray ink.

And that was it. I told you it was very easy to make!!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,

Wanda, what a wonderful card. I think you were right about not adding the bird. I also like that you used gray to stamp the sentiment. It gives it such a soft look. The card is clean and simple but very elegant. Great Job!
