Hand-Penned Petals, Thank You Card, 2021-2022 Stampin' Up! Catalog

Here's a perfect case of making due with what you have. I found this adorable card on Pinterest and thought I'd give it a try. You can see the original card here

While gathering all the materials, I noticed that I didn't have the circle piece. So I thought that it did look a bit familiar, it looked kind of like the die used in the retired "Swirly Bird" set.  Now I'm getting ready for a "garage sale" of my retired Stampin' Up! sets and I went out to the garage to look through the stacks of stamps to find the set.  See why I hate to give up my stamp sets?  I really need an addition to the house to keep them all. And we know that's not going to happen.  SO I will make a few cards using the "Swirly Bird" die and put it back in the garage!

I die cut the swirly image using Basic White card stock. but noticed that it didn't have a solid center. SO, I die cut the third "Stitched Circle" using Basic White card stock too. 

The flower was stamped using black Memento ink on Basic White card stock.  I colored the image in using both light and dark Blends pens. I used Mint Macaron for the leaves, Flirty Flamingo for the big flower and Daffodil Delight for the small flower. The highlight on the little flower was colored in using the light Pumpkin Pie Blends pen. And the center of that flower was colored in using the dark Daffodil Delight Blends pen. I die cut the image, added Dimensionals to the back and set it aside.

The words are from the same "Hand-Penned Petals" set and were stamped using Crushed Curry ink. I didn't have the die cut used on the original card so I found something that I thought would work. It's from the "Ornate Frames" dies. I die cut the words closer to the right side because the left was going to be tucked under the flowers.

The base of the card is a folded half-sheet of Basic White card stock. This card was cut in half on the 8-1/2" side. It measured 4-1/4" x 11" before it was folded in half.

A 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Basic White was cut for the layer, and a 3-7/8" x 5-1/8" piece of Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the "Hand-Penned DSP".  I taped the DSP to the piece of Basic White.

The swirly circle was glued in place and then the stitched circle was taped to the top of that.

I set the flower over the circle to see where the words should go. I taped the words in place and then I removed the backing from the Dimensionals and set the flower on top of the circle and words.

Dimenisonals were added to the back of the layers and set in place on the card base and the card was done.

This was a very quick and easy card to make, plus it's bright and cheery. I would like to make another one as a get well card. And it would be pretty as a birthday card too.

Thank you SO very much for taking your time to stop by and see this cheery card,
