Waterfront, Flourishing Phrases, Thank You Card

I need to make some wintry or Christmas thank you cards.  I thought I'd start with this one since it was easy and quick.  And that is what I need right now with this horrid cold thing I'm fighting.  I found a card here and liked the look and did what I thought looked right! 

The base of this card is a folded piece of Whisper White card stock.  This card opens on the right.  

I cut the Whisper White piece that I stamped on at 5" x 3-3/4".  First I stamped the horizon with the long line piece in the "Waterfront" set.  I used black Memento ink.  After stamping the horizon on the right side, I moved the stamp over and without inking it up again I stamped it on the left on the horizon line.  I cleaned the stamp and inked it up with Balmy Blue. I stamped off and added some more horizon lines under the black horizon line.

Next I inked up the large background stamp from the set and stamped off once. I stamped the background in three places plus I stamped the same image on the front in the water.  

And then I stamped the trees using black Memento ink.  It looks like it was stamped off but it's not, the design in the stamp makes it look like that.

The words are from the "Flourishing Phrases" set. I stamped them using black Memento ink.  And that was it.  Super easy and quick to make.  I think this would be pretty using Highland Heather ink!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
