Sending You Thoughts, Thoughtful Blooms, Birthday Card, 2020 Stampin' Up! Sale-a-Bration

I still had the "Thoughtful Blooms" set and the matching paper punch sitting out. I know that didn't surprise you at all. Had I said I put it away, then you'd be surprised or even shocked!!!  I know I would. LOL

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Whisper White card stock.  On top of that is a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Calypso Coral card stock.

The Whisper White focal piece was cut 3-3/4" x 5".  I stamped the leaves from the "Thoughtful Blooms" set using Old Olive ink.  I just stamped across the bottom of the card until it was filled in enough.  Looking at the card here, I probably should have drawn a pencil line to keep the leaves straight.  They kind of go downhill on the right.  Maybe if I nudge the flower up on the right a bit it might not show as much.  (PS, it didn't work!!!).

I stamped the solid flower in the set using Calypso Coral, Flirty Flamingo and Poppy Parade inks.  I had stamped and punched out two of each but only used five.

Next I stamped the words from the "Sending You Thoughts" set.  Both the "Sending You Thoughts" , "Thoughtful Blooms", and the matching flower punch are from the 2020 Sale-a-Bration catalog.  I set the flowers in place using Dimensionals.

I tied a piece of white Baker's Twine around the card twice and tied a bow.

Then I set the whole Whisper White panel in place on the Calypso Coral piece using Dimensionals.  I taped the Calypso Coral piece to the card base.  

And for the final touch, I added small pearls to the center of each flower.

This was a very quick and easy card to make. I am kind of stuck on those colors too.  It's so cheery. We got a lot of snow, cold and wind and it's just all white out there.  These colors are SO welcome!!

Thank you for stopping by today,
