Hand-Penned Petals, Blooms in Bloom, Friendship or Thinking of You Card, Stampin' Up!

When I had made yesterday's card there was also another card on the same page I'd found that card. I liked them both and I was only going to pick one but I decided that I'd make the other one since I had thought it was a difficult decision to pick just one.  I found the original card here

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

The first think I did was I die cut the Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the "Hand-Penned" 12" x 12" package. I cut the DSP at 4-1/4" x 1-1/2".  I took a quarter sheet of Mint Macaron (wrong color, I should have used Soft Succulent but it was too late at this point) and I used the die from the "Penned Flowers" set that is part of the "Hand-Penned Petals" bundle and I die cut the scalloped piece. I trimmed it to a half inch wide and 4-1/4" long. I taped the DSP to the scalloped strip.  That was then taped to the front of the card about 1/4" from the bottom of the card edge. 

Then I took the rest of the quarter sheet of Mint Macaron and I die cut a 2-11/16" circle from the "Layering Circle" die set. It's the second largest one. I took a piece of Basic White card stock and die cut a scalloped circle from the same set that was just a little larger than the Mint Macaron circle.  I taped the two circles together. Before taping them down, I set the piece where I thought it would be going so I could see where to stamp the flower image on the upper right corner. That image is from the "Hand-Penned Petals" set and was stamped using Mint Macaron ink. 

I die cut the butterfly from the "Butterfly Brilliance" set using Basic White card stock.  I taped the circles in place and then the butterfly on top. 

The words are from the "Blossoms in Bloom" set and were stamped using Evening Evergreen ink. And the card was done.

This is a nice way to use up strips of DSP that are in your stash! It's a quick card and even if you don't have a stamp set to match the image in the upper corner, you could always just add your wording up there.

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

This card is just beautiful. So elegant and classic. The colors are so pretty. My favorite is the butterfly.
