Pansy Patch, Color & Contour, Thank You Card, Stampin' Up!

A while back I saw this sweet layout and I drew it up on a piece of scrap paper and of course it got lost in the mess on my worktable. I ran across it the other day and I set it on top of my to do list stack! It was a lot easier than I thought it would be and quick too.

The base of the card is a folded half-sheet of Basic White card stock. I cut a 4-1/8" x 5-3/8" piece of Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the "Pansy Petals" 12" x 12" package.  I taped it to the front of the card base.

Next I die cut the scalloped edge piece using the die from the "Color & Contour" bundle on Basic White card stock. 

The words from the "Pansy Patch" were stamped using black Memento ink. I did use my Stamparatus to hold the card stock in place and get the words straight. Fortunately the ink pad was nice and juicy so I only had to stamp the words once.  But that's the nice thing about the Stamparatus. If my ink is too dry or I don't press down evenly, I can ink up the image again and stamp right over the same exact spot. 

Okay, next I die cut the rectangle using the second largest die from the "Rectangle Stitched Framelets" set. It's from the smaller group of four dies, not the larger group of eight.  I set it about 5/8" from the top, bottom, and side of the light line the scalloped die made. I added Dimensionals to the back and set the piece in place on top of the DSP.

I die cut the flowers and leaves from the DSP. I love it that the dies match the DSP.  The leaves are on the backside of the first piece of DSP that was cut for the background. I have mixed feelings about that, especially if I really like the images. But this time it was okay because the sheet is covered in leaves so there's plenty! Once the flowers and leaves were cut, I used Dimensionals and set the smaller flowers in place inside the rectangle.  

Then I added the larger flower using Dimensionals, making sure I didn't add any that would just hang over the edge.  I added some glue to the bottom end of the leaves and I tucked the two on the left in and I glued the one on the right to behind the flower.  I stacked two Dimensionals together and set them under the leaf on the right. 

I thought the card could use a little bling, so I added some sequins I had and the card was done.

I really like the way the card turned out and I especially like the font.

Thank you SO very much for stopping by and seeing today's thank you card,
