Peaceful Moments, Basket of Blooms, Thank You Card, 2020-2021 Stampin' Up! Catalog

Today I wanted to make a bright and cheery thank you card. I LOVE the Pacific Point blue color. It's a very nice bright blue, so I went with it. I did struggle a little to find colors that would go with it and yet keep it cheery. And this is what I came up with.

The base of my card is a half-sheet of Pacific Point card stock.  The card stock was cut at 4-1/4" on the short side.  Then it was scored at 5-1/2". This card opens on the right and the fold is on the left.  I was originally going to make it so the card opened on the bottom but I didn't have any thank you words that would fit with the pieces I had die cut.

I took a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Granny Apple Green and taped it to the front of the card.

A 3-7/8" x 5-1/8" piece of Whisper White was textured using the "Ornate Floral" embossing folder. That piece was then taped to the front of the Granny Apple Green piece.  I didn't punch out my leaves from that Granny Apple Green layer piece, I had some scrap so I used that instead. I punched out three pieces using the "Sprig" punch. 

I die cut a Pacific Point, Gray Granite, and Whisper White piece using the 4th largest "Stitched Nested Labels" die.  

The words are from the "Peaceful Moments" set. They were stamped using Pacific Point ink.

The three label pieces were taped together leaving about 1/4" of the color of the piece showing. Then they were set in place on the card using Dimensionals.

The flowers are from the "Basket of Blooms" stamp set. They were stamped six time using the "Small Bloom" punch. I used a blender pen and some Pacific Point ink to color in the flowers.  I started out with the pen in the center of the flower so it wouldn't be too dark on the petals. I went outward from the flower center.

The sprigs were cut apart and placed on the left side of the die cut label pieces. I ran a line of liquid glue along the edge of the label piece and I placed the sprig pieces on it.  The flowers were then glued in place.  A pearl was added to the center of each flower and the card was done.

This was a very quick and easy card to make. It's also bright and cheery too!

Thank you SO much for taking the time to stop by today and have a look,
