Beautifully Happy, Thank You Card, Stampin' Up!

Hello! I'm happy you are here to see today's card. It was fun and easy to make and I'm sure you'll find it is too! I saw the card on Pinterest but I did change a couple of things. You can see the original card here

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

I cut a 4-1/8" x 5-3/8" piece of Poppy Parade card stock for the layer.  On top of that is a 3-5/8" x 4-7/8" piece of Vellum. Then a 3-1/8" x 4-3/8" piece of Basic Black card stock and the top layer, focal piece was cut at 3" x 4-1/4".  

I stamped the flower from the "Beautifully Happy" set using black Memento ink. I stamped the flowers with Poppy Parade ink and I stamped the leaves with Pear Pizzazz ink. Then I colored over the flower with my Wink of Stella pen.

The piece was textured using the "Painted Texture" embossing folder.

The words are from the same "Beautifully Happy" set and were stamped using black Memento ink on a scrap piece of Basic White card stock. I punched out the words using the "Dual Punch", and I also punched out the scalloped oval from the same punch using a scrap piece of Poppy Parade card stock. I was now ready to assemble the card.

I taped the Poppy Parade piece to the card base.

Next I glued the Basic White piece to the Basic Black piece and then I taped that to the vellum. In doing this I could see where the tape is on the vellum plus where the layer is so I could add Dimensionals so they wouldn't show through the vellum. Once the Dimensionals were added to the back of the vellum I set it in place on the front of the card.

The ovals were taped together and Dimensionals were added to the back. Then the piece was set in place on the lower left and the card was done.

If I were to make this card again I think I would have made the card base Basic Black. It just looks like it needs more black. But it's still pretty as it is! It was fun, quick and easy to make.

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