Dainty Delight, Color & Contour, Thank You Card, Stampin' Up!

Hello and welcome to my blog. Today I have a pretty card to share with you that I found on Pinterest. I was looking for something fun to make using the "Dainty Delight" bundle. You can see the original card here. There was no link to where the card originated from so I had to wing it on sizes and colors. Please read on to see how I made the card. 

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

I cut a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Granny Apple Green card stock for the layer. On top of that is a 3-3/4" x 5" piece of Basic White card stock that was textured using the "Distressed" embossing folder. I glued that on top of the Granny Apple Green piece.

The flowers are from the "Dainty Delight" bundle and were stamped using black Memento ink. Then I colored it in using the following light Blends pens, Old Olive, Balmy Blue, Highland Heather, Melon Mambo, and Daffodil Delight. I used both light and dark Calypso Coral, the light for the centers of the Daffodil Delight flowers and the dark for the flowers on the lower left. The upper right tiny ones are done in Melon Mambo. The rest are easy to figure out. Once the coloring was done I die cut the piece with the matching die in the bundle. Dimensionals were added to the back and the piece was set aside.

I die cut the third rectangle in the "Color & Contour" bundle on a piece of Basic White card stock. 

The flower piece was set alongside the scalloped rectangle to see where the words should go. The words are from the "Color & Contour" bundle. They were stamped using black Memento ink. Once they were stamped the piece was glued to the top of the card, centering it as much as possible by eyeing it.

The flowers were added and the card was done.

I love the clean and simple look of this card and I thought it was fun to color in all of those flowers and leaves.

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

Very pretty! I love that Dainty Delight set. I need to just stop buying and use all of the great sets I already have. Maybe that's my New Year's Resolution!
