Go To Greetings, Hues of Happiness, Thank You Card, Stampin' Up!

Hello! Are you ready to clean up some scraps from your workroom?  I sure am. I found some and put them together to make today's card.

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

The Designer Series Paper (DSP) on the left strip is a scrap from the April 2019 Paper Pumpkin kit. I layered it with a piece of Mint Macaron.  The strip measures 4-7/8" x 1". and the Mint Macaron piece was cut at 5" x 1-1/8".  I taped the two pieces together and then taped them to the front of the card about 1/4" from the bottom, top and fold.

The larger rectangle piece is also from the same kit but can be easily accomplished by using your Blending Brush and some Mint Macaron ink and a little SO Saffron ink. Add some tiny Mint Macron dots on the piece and you have your own! That piece measures 4-1/4" x 3" and the Mint Macaron layer was cut at 4-3/8" x 3-1/8".  I taped those two layers together and Dimensionals were added to the back and that piece was set in place on the front of the card about 1/2" from the top and bottom and 3/8" from the right edge.

Next I punched out the leaves from the "Bough" punch using Mint Macaron card stock.

The flower is from the "Hues of Happiness" DSP package and was fussy cut. Dimensionals were added to the back. I set the leaves where I wanted them and added the flower piece. The flower has an enamel dot in the center.

The words are from the "Go To Greetings" set and were stamped using black Memento ink. They were punched out using the "Dual Oval" punch. The Mint Macaron layer was punched from the same "Dual Oval" punch. Those two pieces were taped together. Dimensionals were added to the back and then set in place on the front of the card.  And the card was done.

Isn't it fun when you can use up some pieces you have sitting around and make a fun card with them too?

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

Beautiful card, and so great to use up bits and pieces! I just checked out all of your recent cards, too - I'm quite behind. So fun and pretty!

Such a pretty card! The card on my page used that dsp too. In spite of trying to use up my stash of paper, I ordered a second pack of it.
