Softly Sophisticated, Everyday Details, Thinking of You Card, Stampin' Up!

Hello and welcome to my blog.  Don't you think Sale-a-Bration (SB) should last longer. It's not enough time to play with all of the new stuff before it retires. I may pop in a few cards in the future from the SAB because I just didn't get to play with them enough. Today I made a card from the SAB free book. Please read on to see how I made it.

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Basic White card stock. I cut a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Basic White card stock and textured it using the "Painted Texture" embossing folder. I glued that to the card base.

Next I took another piece of Basic White card stock and die cut the rectangle using the "Everyday Details" die set. It just came today and I'm hoping it makes it to the new yearly catalog. As I was looking at it I realized there is no dies in there that are connected to other stamp set images, it's just rectangles, circles an lines.  So I'm keeping my fingers crossed that it will be in the new annual catalog. Anyway, after die cutting the rectangle frame I stamped the leaves from the "Softly Sophisticated" set using Granny Apple Green ink. I stamped it up higher on the piece because I wanted the words to be below them and off to the side. 

The flowers were stamped using Crushed Curry ink. I was debating between Crushed Curry and Daffodil Delight. Either would be pretty but I went with the darker color. I added Dimensionals to the back and set the piece in place on the front of the card about 3/4" from the top and 3/4" from the fold.

The words are from the same "Softly Sophisticated" set and were stamped on a piece of Basic White card stock using Granny Apple Green ink. I die cut it using the circle die in the "Everyday Details" set. I added Dimensionals to the bottom area and a bit of glue to the upper left area. I set the piece in place on top of the rectangle panel.

I don't really like the open area to the left of the word circle on the rectangle. It needs something there. I may grab one of those brushed brass butterflies. What do you think, add something or leave it as it is?

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