Sending You Thoughts, Flowering Foils, Get Well Card, 2020 Stampin' Up! Spring Catalog

Today I was surfing the net and I found a fun card to color on Pinterest.  I liked how quick you could make a card and I liked the colors.  You can see the original card here.

The base of the card is a folded half-sheet of Whisper White card stock.

On top of that is a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of the "Flowering Foils" Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the 2020 Sale-a-Bration book.

I colored the flowers with Petal Pink using a sponge. 

Then I colored the flowers again using Calypso Coral ink and a sponge. I made sure I left the Petal Pink color on the edges and mostly colored towards the centers of each flower.

I colored the center of each flower with the dark Daffodil Delight Blends pen.

I sponged Old Olive on the leave.  And I sponged Calypso Coral on the buds.  And the coloring was done.

I stamped the words from the "Sending You Thoughts" Sale a Bration catalog.  I used black Memento ink on Whisper White card stock. 

I die cut the words with the "Stampin' Cut & Emboss" dies.  I used the third smallest for the words and the next one larger for the Old Olive layer.  I taped the two pieces together and I added Dimensionals to the back.

I took some Old Olive ribbon that I had (it's retired) and I put it down on the card where the words are to go. I did add a little snail tape to hold it in place while I worked it to get it the way I wanted it to look.

I set the word panel in place and the card was done.

Oh, I forgot to mention, I stamped "you'd be better already" on the inside.  It was in the same "Sending you Thoughts" set.

It was a very fun and quick card to make. I love it that you can sponge on this paper and it looks really pretty!  Sponging is so quick and easy.

Thank you SO much for taking the time to stop by today,
