Varied Vases, Thank You Card, Stampin' Up! 2018-2019 Catalog

Here is a card I copied from Terri's sample board at her last Stamping Extravaganza in Brooklyn Park.  That was a fun time. There were lots of demos of new products from the catalog.  

This was a fun and easy card to make.  The base of the card is a folded half-sheet of So Saffron card stock. On top of that is a 5-1/4" x 4" piece of Basic Black. And the Whisper White piece was cut 3-3/4" x 5".  The flower strip is from the "Share What You Love" Specialty Designer Series Paper (SDSP).  You can't see it in the photo, but the small flowers have a very pretty shimmer to them.  That piece was cut 5" x 1-1/2".  

On the Whisper White piece I scored it every 3/8".  I taped the strip in place and then added a piece of the burlap ribbon.  It would have been a little longer but I cut the angle wrong. I wanted it cut like in the photo but my first cut was the same as the other end. I could have used it but it wasn't what I wanted, so it's now short, which isn't what I wanted either!!! LOL  *laughs and rolls eyes while shaking head*

The flower was stamped on a piece of So Saffron card stock. It was stamped 3 times and it was fussy cut. UGH!  But it was the only thing I had to fussy cut so it was okay.  I stamped the vase from the "Varied Vases" set using black Memento ink.  I die cut it with the stitched oval and then I stamped th words. You can stamp the words first and then die cut, it really doesn't matter, just get them close to the bottom of the vase. I added a scalloped oval layer behind it and set it in place using Dimensionals. I set the flowers in place using Dimensionals as well.  I added tiny pearls to the center of each flower.  I remembered this time!!!  I took a piece of linen thread and tied a bow and glued it in place.  And that was it. Pretty quick and simple.  This is not one of the colors I would normally use, but I do like it.

Thank you SO much for visiting today,

Love your card, Wanda. I always like simplicity because there is a focal point and no busyness. Thanks for showing us.
