Go To Greetings, Dainty Delights, Dainty Flowers, Thank You Card, Stampin' Up!

Welcome back! I have something SO fun to share with you today. This is one of my most favorite layout and I use it a lot when I have tiny images. Please read on to see how I made this card.

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

The layers from the bottom up go as follows. The Basic White piece was cut at 3-1/2" x 4-5/8". The Rich Razzleberry piece was cut at 3" x 4-1/8".  And the Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the "Dainty Delight" 12" x 12" package was cut at 2-7/8" x 4".  

I took the DSP and the Rich Razzleberry piece and added a tiny bit of tape to the area where I think the circle is going to go. I needed make sure the two pieces aren't going to shift. Then I took a 1-1/4" circle punch and dropping the piece into the punch as far as it will go, centering it as well as I can by eyeing it and then punching through both pieces.  Then I took a 1-3/8" circle punch and the punched piece of DSP and before punching a ring from the circle of the DSP, I added a piece of scrap copier paper for stability and I punched out the ring. If you don't add the copier paper your DSP will get pinched in the punch and ruin the outer edge of the DSP. And that won't be very pretty! Trust me on that! Been there, done that.  And now you can tape the DSP to the Rich Razzleberry pieces together.

Dimensionals were added around the circle and then I took another piece of DSP from the same "Dainty Delights" package, the dotted piece that measured about 2" x 2" and I set it in place on the Dimensionals. 

Next the piece was added to the Basic White piece using Dimensionals and a little bit of tape on the back of the 2-1/2" x 2-1/2" piece of DSP. Then that piece was added to the card base.

The words are from the "Go To Greetings" set using Mossy Meadow ink. I punched it out using the "Double Oval" punch. I took a scrap piece of Rich Razzleberry card stock and punched out the scalloped oval using the same punch. I was going to try to punch the piece from the Rich Razzleberry layer but the space on the punch between the oval and the scalloped oval is questionable and I may have ruined the piece because you have to try to get it up so I opted to play it safe, plus I had some scraps in my tote. I taped the word oval to the scalloped oval. Dimensionals were added to the back and the piece was set in place on the front of the card.

The cute little flower is from the "Dainty Delight" bundle. I die cut two flowers and I glued them together at the center. I added a small Dimensional to the back and set it in place inside the circle. I had an embellishment from one of the kits I had gotten at Terri's Stamp-a-Stack and I set it in place on the center of the flower. I colored it using my light Rich Razzleberry Blends pen. The dark pen might have been better but I just left it as it was because it was already on the flower.

I cut a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Basic White card stock and taped it to the inside of the card and the card was done.

Isn't it a fun card? Don't you just love it that you can feature smaller images using this layout? I sure do!

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