Beautiful Friendship, Peaceful Moments, Thank You Card

I thought I'd give the "One Sheet Wonder" technique another try. Why not since I hadn't put the stamp sets away yet.  LOL Like I put things away right away!!! 

The base of the card is a folded half-sheet of Basic White card stock. I took the larger double rose image from the "Beautiful Friendship" set and stamped it around the edges using Daffodil Delight ink. I stamped it in various directions.  I didn't keep the upper part open like I did when I made yesterday's "One Sheet Wonder".  

Next I stamped the same flowers using Crushed Curry ink. I stamped in the open areas and I stamped over the Daffodil Delight images too.  

The leaves were stamped using Pear Pizzazz ink. They were stamped once and then again before inking it up again. That is where you get the soft muted colors.

This was a quick and easy way to make a fun background image. 

 I cut my piece 1-7/8" x 4-5/8". I made three cards and there was still a nice size piece left for a future card or for my stash so I can run across it someday and whip up a card in no time. I also cut a 2" x 4-3/4" piece of Basic Black card stock for the layer. I didn't tape them together yet.

The words are from the "Peaceful Moments" set and were stamped on a scrap piece of Basic White card stock and were stamped using black Memento.  I die cut them using a stitched oval die. I die cut the scalloped layer from the Basic Black layer I cut for the rose strip. No one will know there's an oval cut from that strip. Or you can use a piece of scrap Basic Black card stock. 

Two 4" x 5-1/4" pieces of Basic White card stock was cut. One for the inside of the card and one for the front.  I textured the front piece using the "Ornate Floral" embossing folder. I glued this to the front of the Basic Black card base.

Next I taped the floral strip and the Basic Black layer together and glued them in place. 

I taped the ovals together and added Dimensionals to the back. I set the oval in place on the front of the card and the card was done. 

What is fun with this layout is you can use it with different orientations. You can put the long strip at the top, like I did here. Or you can put it at the bottom. You can also turn the card so it opens on the right and add the words towards the top, or middle, or bottom. I would use larger words if you're going to do it that way. I made two like the one pictured and one with the words at the top and the panel at the bottom. I liked the panel at the top much better. 

This stamp set is going to be retiring soon and it will be added to my web store sometime in the near future. 

Thank you SO very much for taking your time today to see this fun and easy thank you card,
