Touches of Texture, Thoughtful Banners, Thank You Card

While biding my time waiting for my new stuff to come, I ran across a pretty card on Pinterest.  I did change it a little but for the most part it's the same.

This was a fun and simple card to make.  The base of the card is a folded half-sheet of Crumb Cake card stock.  I sponged the edges with Crumb Cake ink. On top of that is 4" x 5-1/4" Early Espresso card stock. And the focal Crumb Cake part of the card is 3-3/4" x 5".  

First I stamped the flower from the "Touches of Texture" image using Crumb Cake, stamped off once.  I stamped three of them.  Then I stamped the flower branch image. I stamped directly from the ink pad.  I stamped the dragonfly right from the ink pad. Then I stamped the speckled images straight from the ink pad and once again without reinking.  

I colored the flowers with So Saffron ink and a blender pen.  I also colored the dragonfly wings with So Saffron ink.  I colored the body with Soft Suede ink.

The words are from the "Thoughtful Banners" set. I stamped the banner using Soft Suede ink and then I stamped the words.  I punched the banner out and added Dimensionals to the back.

I took a piece of the lacy ribbon and set it in place on the Crumb Cake card stock. I taped the layers together and then I set the words in place.  I even added the tiny pearls before I posted the photo. Pretty, huh?  And that was it!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
