Petal Palette, Petal Garden, Thank You Card

When finding die cut pieces sitting around my worktable, I often wonder why I hadn't used them.  What's really fun is when I do use them on a card, it sure makes for a super quick card!!!  This is a very fun and simple card, even if you have to make all the parts fresh!

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Calypso Coral card stock.  I cut a 2-3/4" x 5-1/2" piece of Old Olive Card stock. On top of that is a 2-1/2" x 5-1/2" piece of "Petal Garden" Decorative Series Paper.  I taped those two layers together and then I taped the back. I stuck a half a paper doily to the back and then set the strip in place.  I taped the end of the stem of the die cut branch at about the spot where the bird feet were going to be. 

I stamped and die cut the bird and colored it in using Calypso Coral and Crumb Cake Blends markers.  I set the bird in place using Dimensionals. 

The words are from the same "Petal Palette" bundle. I stamped them using black Memento ink (that's all I ever use) and die cut them with the label die in the bundle.  I set them in place using Dimensionals.  And after adding a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of white card stock inside, the card was done!!

It was fun and simple and I think it has a very cheery look to it.

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
