Petal Palette, Teeny Tiny Wishes, Thank You Card

Here's another fun card I found on Pinterest.  I loved the background paper.  Mine is different from the original card in that I did not use the ribbon on the front because I didn't have any and I used the stamps in the set for the background.  

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Pool Party card stock.  The next layer is a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Basic Black card stock.  On top of that is a 3-7/8" x 5-1/8" piece of Whisper White card stock and on top of that is a 3-7/8" x 5-1/8" piece of vellum.  I actually made two of these cards because I had a half-sheet of Whisper White card stock sitting out. There are two smaller flower images in the set and I set them in place on one clear block and stamped all over that half-sheet. I trimmed that paper to 3-7/8" x 5-1/8".  I colored my flowers in using Soft Suede ink and a blender pen and the Pool Party Blends marker.  The leaves were colored in with Garden Green and a blender pen.

I die cut that lacy looking piece using Soft Suede card stock.  I cut a 1-1/4" x 3-5/8" piece of Pool Party card stock and punched it with the Triple Banner punch.  I think that is what that punch is called.

I die cut the largest stitched circle using Whisper White card stock.  I stamped and die cut the flower and bird.  

I colored the flower using the Pool Party Blends pens. I colored the leaves in using Garden Green ink and a blender pen.  I colored the bird in using Soft Suede and a blender pen.

To assemble my card I taped the stamped and colored Whisper White piece to the Basic Black piece.  Then I taped the vellum on top of that.  I taped all of those onto the Pool Party card base. I taped the banner piece 1" up from the bottom of the card base. Then I taped the circle in place. I set the flower in place so I could see how much space I had to stamp. I stamped the words from the soon to be retiring "Teeny Tiny Wishes" set.  I'm REALLY going to miss that set. It covered every occasion.  After stamping, I set the circle in place at a 1/2" from the left side and 1-1/4" up from the bottom.  Then I set that lacy piece in place. I had die cut mine on sticky paper so it became a sticker. It's too difficult to glue or tape it in place. Next I set the flower in place using Dimensionals and the bird was set in place with Dimensionals. I was careful to only put the Dimensionals on the tail and far left body of the bird.  And that was it.  I REALLY like this card.  I have not played with vellum in a long time and I really like the look of it. I have some REALLY busy decorative paper that could be muted using vellum.  Wheels are churning!!! LOL
