Around the Bend, Thank You Card, Stampin' Up!

Hello!  I have a fun card to share with you today. I found this card on Pinterest and I changed it a little. You can see the original card here

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Basic White card stock.  This card opens on the bottom and the fold is on the top. After folding this in half, I set it aside.

I took a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Basic White card stock, Fresh Freesia card stock and a 5-1/2" x 2" piece of Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the "Delightful Eclectic" 12" x 12" package.

I took the Fresh Freesia piece and used the pretty die from the "Around the Bend" bundle I just eyed where I wanted the piece to be cut. I wanted to make sure I had enough room for the word piece so after eyeing things up, I taped the die down with some post it tape and then cut the piece.

Next I set the Basic White piece behind it and lined up my curved line with does stamp from the same set and stamped it using Old Olive ink. I taped the Basic White piece to the Fresh Freesia piece.

I took a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of copier paper and I set the piece I just glued on top of it with the back of it facing. Then I taped the DSP to the back. The piece of copier paper is a guide so I get the finished piece to measure 5-1/4" x 4".  Once that was done I taped the piece to the front of the card.

The words are from the same "Around the Bend" set and were stamped using Old Olive on a scrap piece of Basic White card stock.  I punched it out using the "Double Oval" punch. Then I punched the scalloped oval using Old Olive card stock. I taped the two ovals together. Dimensionals were added to the back and the piece was set in place on the front of the card and the card was done.

Isn't that a fun card?  I'm off to address the envelope and get it ready to sent out in tomorrow morning's mail.

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

I love your card! That curby die cut makes a very interesting presentation and such pretty papers. I don't have the same die set but I do have the "Quite Curvy" set. I pulled them out and will try to make something similar. Thanks for the great idea!
