Positive Thoughts, Sympathy Card, Friendship Card, 2020-2021 Stampin' Up! Catalog

I found this fun little gem on Pinterest. It looked like it was just calling for me to make it.  I loved the colors and that's why I was drawn to it.  You can see the original card here.  

The base of the card is a folded half-sheet of Calypso Coral card stock.  The card stock was cut in half on the short side at 4-1/4".  This card was scored at 5-1/2" and folded. It opens on the bottom and the fold is on the top.

I took a 1/4 sheet of Petal Pink card stock and I lined up the left edge border die from the "Ornate Borders" and taped it in place with some Washi tape.  I also taped the flowered edge piece from the same set. Then I ran it through the Big Shot and cut them out.  You need to be a little careful removing the floral edge, it sometimes doesn't want to separate easily, especially on the top.  I taped this piece to the left side of the card.

I took some of the Petal Pink card stock that was left over from cutting the flower piece and die cut the frame from the "Ornate Frames" dies. 

The words are from the "Positive Thoughts" set and I stamped them using Flirty Flamingo ink on Whisper White card stock. It should have been Calypso Coral but I grabbed the wrong one. It blended in well and you wouldn't have known if I wouldn't have said anything!! I die cut the words with the die from the same "Ornate Frames" die set.  I taped the word piece to the frame piece and then I set that in place on the front of the card using Dimensionals.

I added a few tiny pearls to the center of each flower. 

I also added a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Whisper White card stock to the inside of the card and the card was done.

This was a very quick and easy card to make. I think it would be a pretty card using white on white for a wedding card.  I can see myself making this card again but in different colors.

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