Peaceful Moments, Flowers for Every Season, Thank You Card, 2020-2021 Stampin' Up! Catalog

I did order a variety package of the 2020-2022 in colors of card stock.  I will probably use black ink or an ink that is close to the color of the in colors but I won't be buying the ink pads.  I just don't use them enough to merit purchasing them.  I only bought the variety package of paper because I had purchased the "Flowers for Every Season" DSP 6" x 6"stack.  I liked the looks of all the flowers in it but didn't pay attention to the colors used. SO after making some cards by trying to match some card stock, I decided to buy the variety pack in my next order.  Now I can use the papers with ease.  I did have the Misty Moonlight ink because it came in my Paper Pumpkin kit.  I have almost all of the colors of ink spots now. There's a few that I'm pretty sure won't be in kits, like Daffodil Delight for one, so I just bought a package of the empty ones and inked them up, so I have all the colors in ink spots now. I like using them for smaller images and words.  Okay, onto my card for today.

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Whisper White card stock.  This card opens at the bottom and the fold is at the top.  

The Misty Moonlight piece was cut 4" x 5-1/4" and before I taped it on the front of the card, I punched out a 3/8" circle for the flower center. 

The DSP is from the "Flowers for Every Season" set. It was cut at 3-3/4" x 5" and taped on top of the Misty Moonlight piece.

The rectangles were cut using the "Rectangle Stitched Framelits" dies. I used two at the same time. I used the thinner more narrow dies, the largest and second largest of those thinner ones.  I cut them both out at the same time. I did use a post it note to hold them in place so they wouldn't shift while I was running it through the Big Shot. 

I also cut a second one using only the larger thin die. It needed to go on the back of the frame where the words were to be stamped.

The words are from the "Peaceful Moments" set and were stamped using Misty Moonlight ink.  If you don't have that color, you could use Night of Navy in, it will fit in with the color scheme nicely.

I used pieces of the "Foam Adhesive Strips" to pop up the frame piece.

I taped the framed piece to the front of the card.

Then the flower was made by using the "Medium Daisy Punch". Two were punched out. I wanted to sponge the edges for some added color but the ink looked different than the color of the  flower images. I glued the two flower pieces together and then glued the Misty Moonlight circle piece in the middle. The flower was set in place using a Dimensional and the card was done.  Now it's ready to go out in tomorrow's mail.

This was a very fun card to make. I could have made it a shaker card but I think the August Paper Pumpkin kit is a shaker card.  There's lots of sequins in it, I'm just guessing.  If not, I can always make this layout again as a shaker.

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