Petal Palette, Thank You Card, 2018 Occasions Catalog

Yup, I'm still working on the ton of thank you cards I need to make.  I don't want to make them all the same or I will get bored with them and no one will get a card!!!  I have made some duplicates, I have to or I won't get the cards out for a couple of month!!!

So, onto this pretty card. I can't take total credit for it, I found it on Pinterest and you can see it here.  I changed it up a little. I added the panel on the left and the words are different.

The base of this card is a folded half-sheet of Whisper White card stock. I also layered my Decorative Series Papers (DSP) with Basic Black card stock.  The piece next to the card base was cut 3-3/4" X 5-1/2".  The DSP layer was cut 3-5/8" x 5-1/2".  The strip of Basic Black was cut 1-5/8" x 4-5/8" and the strip of DSP was cut 1-1/2" x  4-1/2".  The larger layers were just taped in place, no Dimensionals added there.  I did add Dimensionals to the long panel.

I die cut the second largest stitched circle using Whisper White card stock.  I also die cut a branch, and after stamping the bird and flower from the "Petal Palette" set I die cut them too.  I stamped the words and die cut them using the shape that came with the set/bundle.  

I colored the bird in using the Berry Burst marker and a blender pen.  I used Soft Suede and the blender pen for the top part of the bird.  The flower was stamped off once using Berry Burst ink and then die cut.  

I set the branch in place using a couple of Dimensionals.  They are placed where the bird sits and also where the flower sits.  It's such a thin branch and you don't want the Dimensionals to show.

The words were set in place with a Dimensional on the right side and just taped on top of the panel on the left side.  I added a tiny pearl to the center of the flower and that was it.

I think it's a very pretty card. It's got a lot of parts to it and that's why I only made one. I need to find a card that I can quick whip up several at one time.

Oh, I almost forgot.  The DSP is from the "Fresh Florals" 12" x 12" in color paper pack.

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
