Flowering Flowers, Color & Contour, Thank You Card, Stampin' Up!

Today's card is a fun and quick card. Plus you get to use up some Designer Series Paper (DSP) too!

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Basic White card stock. This card opens on the right and the fold is on the left. 

I cut a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Fresh Freesia card stock. I stamped the smaller flower from the "Flowering Flowers" using Fresh Freesia ink. 

Then I cut a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the "Hand-Penned" 12" x 12" package. I cut it on the diagonal from the upper left corner to the bottom right corner. I taped it to the stamped Fresh Freesia 4" x 5-1/4" piece. And then that was taped to the card base.

For the focal layers, I cut a 2-1/2" x 4" piece of Basic White card stock. A 2-3/8" x 3-7/8" piece of Mint Macaron was cut and a 2-1/4" x 3-3/4" piece of Basic White was cut for the top layer.

If I were to make another card like this, I would set the ribbon across the card and have a better view of where the words should go. And I would stamp the words first with black Memento ink and the words from the "Color & Contour" set.  Then the flower from the "Flowering Flowers" set would be stamped using Fresh Freesia ink. I stamped the dots from the "Color & Contour" set using Daffodil Delight ink. It's prettier if you stamp off first. 

The ribbon was wrapped around the back of the Basic White piece and taped in place. Then the piece was glued to the Mint Macaron. I prefer ink here because I don't think tape will hold up well with the ribbon on just one layer of card stock. Then this was taped to the larger Basic White piece. Dimensionals were added to the back and set in place on the front of the card.  And the card was done!

This was a very fun and easy card to make. I have always liked this layout. It has some dimension to it plus it's pleasing to the eye. This is a very versatile card. It can be used for a number of other occasions.

Thank you SO very much for taking your time to stop by and see today's thank you card,
