Layering Leaves, Fresh as a Daisy, Thank You Card, Stampin' Up!

Hello and welcome to my blog. Today I needed to make a thank you card.  A friend of mine sent me a beautiful bouquet of daisies. A yellow and rust mix. SO pretty. So I thought I'd make her a card using the "Fresh as a Daisy" Designer Series Paper (DSP). It's got some pretty daisy papers in it. Please read on to see how I made today's card.

The base of the card is a folded half-sheet of Basic White card stock. It opens on the bottom and the fold is on the top.

I cut a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Basic White card stock and I textured it using the "Distressed" embossing folder. I glued it to the front of the card base.

I took one of scraps of DSP in the package and I trimmed it down to 3-3/4" x 2-1/4" and I cut a 4" x 2-1/2" piece of Pebbled Path card stock for the layer. I taped the two pieces together and I glued the piece to the front of the card.

The words are from the "Layering Leaves" set and were stamped using Garden Green ink. I die cut them using the smallest die from the "Deckled Rectangles" set. I also die cut the layer behind the words using the second smallest die from that same set. I taped the two layers together and I set the words in place using Dimensionals. And the card was done.

This was a very quick and easy card to make. This layout is great for using up pieces of scrap DSP and still making a pretty card. I can see using up some of my Christmas DSP using this layout. My card will be going out in the mail in the morning.

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