Abstract Impressions, Thank You Card

It's a dark and rainy day here in Minnesota and today I thought I would make a fun spring card.  Something bright and cheery.

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Highland Heather.  On top of that is a piece of Whisper White card stock cut 4" x 5-1/4".  On top of that is another piece of Highland Heather that was cut 3-3/4" x 5".  And the focal piece is Whisper White that was cut 3-1/2" x 4-3/4".  That's a lot of layers, but it's SO pretty that way.

I also cut a 3-1/2" x 2-1/8" piece of Highland Heather Designer Series Paper (DSP) from teh 6" x 6" paper pack. I love those paper packs. You get a big variety for your buck!

I eyed the space where the DSP would go so I wouldn't stamp below it.  I used Granny Apple Green and stamped the the image that had the most leaves/stems from the "Abstract Impressions" set on it.  Then I came back in with the smaller leaves/stems image and using Lemon Lime Twist ink.

The flowers were done next using Highland Heather ink and then the highlights of the flowers were done using Gorgeous Grape ink.

The words are from the same set and I stamped them using Granny  Apple Green ink. I die cut the words using the "Stitched Oval" dies. And the layer behind it was done using Highland Heather card stock and the scalloped oval die.  I taped the ovals together.  

I taped the DSP to the top Whisper White piece and then I added a piece of organza ribbon around the card and taped the ends on the back. I tied a bow and used a glue dot and set it in place on top of the ribbon.  I taped the rest of the layers together and taped them to the top of the card base.  

I added the words using Dimensionals and the card was done.

This was a fun card. It didn't brighten up the skies here but it did brighten my day!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,

I finally have this set. I wonder what took me so long to buy it??? Love your card that looks like a garden of pretty flowers. Hope your weather is better today. I always think cardmakers are lucky to have an indoor craft to get through the dreary days and sunny days are very inspiring. Enjoy your Sunday!
