Pansy Patch, Celebrating You, Thank You Card, Stampin' Up!

I had read that the "Pansy Patch" set/bundle will be retiring. That made me sad because I have hardly used it.  So when I saw this card on the internet, I thought I'd make one.  You can see the original card here.  

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 Balmy Blue card stock for the back layer. And a 3-7/8" x 5-1/8" piece of Basic White card stock was cut and then textured using the "Brick and Mortar" embossing folder. I glued that piece to the Balmy Blue piece and then that was taped to the card base.

I cut a 1" x 5-1/8" strip of Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the Subtles 6" x 6" package.  I glued that to the front of the card about 3/8" from the edge of the textured piece.  

The flowers are from the "Pansy Patch" bundle and were die cut using Basic White card stock. The flower center is from a scrap piece of Basic Black card stock and the leaves/greens are from a scrap piece of Old Olive card stock.  The flower edges were sponged using Balmy Blue and then lightly sponged on the very edge using Night of Navy ink.   The greens were sponged using Old Olive ink. 

I assembled the flowers by looking at the ones on the original card and winged it. Then I glued everything down.

The words are from the "Celebrating You" set and were stamped on a scrap piece of Basic White card stock using black Memento ink.  I die cut them using the smallest die from the "Stitched So Sweetly" die set. I sponged the piece using Balmy Blue ink and then added Night of Navy on the edges like I did with the flowers. I set the word piece in place using Dimensionals. 

This was a fun card to make. It was simple and I do like how it turned out.

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