Here's A Card, Thank You Card, 2020 - 2021 Stampin' Up! Catalog

I was looking for some quick and easy card. I wanted a thank you card but I wanted to use some of the Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the "Flowers for Every Season" 6" x 6" stack.  I didn't have to look too long when I ran across this card. You can see the original card here. I did change it a little.  

I wanted to use the Misty Moonlight DSP in the pack. I hadn't used it on a card yet and thought it would be a difficult design to work with.  Well I was surprised that I found a card right away. 

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 the DSP from the "Flowers for Every Season" stack.  You can cut this piece to 4" x 3-1/2" and it will work. I just used the whole piece.  

In the pack I found the polka dotted piece too and I cut it to 4" x 2". I taped this piece to the larger piece. If you are making your larger piece smaller you will want to tape both directly to the card base and work on making the edges even all around.  I taped the pieces to the front of the card.

I took a 4-1.4" x 3/4 " piece of Misty Moonlight and textured it using the "Ornate Floral" embossing folder.  I taped that to the front of the card. I used the edge of the polka dotted DSP piece as my guide.

The words are from the "Here's a Card" set and I stamped it on Whisper White card stock using Misty Moonlight ink. This piece measured 2-1/8" x 5/8". I fussy cut the ends and I set the piece in place on top of the textured band.

I punched out two flowers from the "Small Bloom" punch using Whisper White card stock. I sponged the edges with Misty Moonlight ink.  I put them in the palm of my hand and used the end of a pencil to push it into my palm to make the flowers "cup". The top flower was set in place with glue dots and the bottom flower was set in place using a Dimensional.  And that was it. The card was done.  I need to get it signed and addressed and it's ready for the mail tomorrow.

This was a fun card to make and a great way to use up some DSP.

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