Go to Greetings, Perennial Lavender, Thinking of You Card, Stampin' Up!

Hello and welcome to my blog. Today I have a super quick and easy card to share with you. I found it on Pinterest. You can see the original card here. I liked they layout because it allows you to use some Designer Series Paper (DSP) scraps or full sheets. You can make 12 layers from one sheet of DSP! So get to work and use up some of that DSP in your stash. I know you have a stash! LOL My stash is pretty large and it's a bit overwhelming but I am going to be taking a full sheet of some retired stuff every few days and make a 12 cards. I will be donating a lot of these cards this fall. So let's get started.

The base of my 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 Highland Heather card stock for the layer. On top of that is a 3-7/8" x 5-1/8" piece of Basic White card stock that I textured using the "Painted Texture" embossing folder. I glued that to the front of the card.

Next I trimmed my piece of DSP from the "Perennial Lavender" 12" x 12" package to 3-1/2" x 2-1/2" and the Highland Heather layer behind it measured 3-3/4" x 2-3/4". I taped the DSP to the Highland Heather layer. Dimensionals were added to the back and the piece was set in place on the front of the card base about 1/2" from the left edge and 3/4" from the top and bottom of the card base. 

The words are from the "Go To Greetings" set and were stamped using black Memento ink. I die cut them and the Highland Heather layer using the two smallest rectangle dies from the "Everyday Details" die set.

I taped the words to the layer. Dimensionals were added to the right side of the piece and glue to the left. I opted for glue so I would be able to move it around a bit to get it centered enough by eying it.  And that was it. Pretty and easy!

This was a fun card to make and if you are in need of a super quick card, this is the way to go!

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