Scenic Garden, Framed Florets, Go to Greetings, Thinking of You Card, Stampin' Up!

Good day to you! I'm happy you are here to see today's quick and easy thinking of you card. 

I used the simple side panel layout again. I had some scrap Designer Series Paper (DSP) in the "Dainty Flowers" 12" x 12" package. It measures 2-1/4" x 5-1/2".  The layer behind it is a piece of Mossy Meadow and it measures 2-1/2" x 5-1/2".  I taped it to the left side of the card, about 1/4" from the fold. Oh, the base of the card is a folded half-sheet of Crumb Cake card stock. It opens on the right and the fold is on the left. 

I die cut the oval using the die in the "Framed Florets" bundle. I kept the center for some other project or to use as scrap. 

The image is from the "Scenic Garden" set and was stamped using Mossy Meadow ink on Very Vanilla card stock. I die cut it with the same die. Be sure to let the ink dry or you'll smudge it (like in did on the bottom right corner of the image).  I turned the image over and placed the oval on top. I used scotch tape and taped the two pieces together.  Then I took the "scrap" oval and traced it on a piece of scrap paper and fussy cut around it leaving a 1/4" or so space around it. I added glue to the piece and stuck it to the back of the taped oval. I did this because I felt the piece needed more stability to stay in place. Dimensionals were added to the back and the piece was set in place on top of the DSP strip. 

I took some linen thread and wrapped it around my fingers a few times and tied it in the middle. I added a dot of mono glue to the top of the DSP and set the thread in place.

The words are from the "Go to Greetings" and were stamped using Mossy Meadow ink on a piece of Very Vanilla card stock that measures 2" x 5/8".  I added a Dimensional to the right side and I doubled up on the Dimensionals on the left side. I needed it two thick so it would be level. And the card was done.

This was a very quick and easy card to make. It was fun to use the oval and some scrap DSP.

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