Simply Zinnia, Flowering Zinnia, Thank You Card, Stampin' Up!

Hello and welcome to my blog. Today my "Simply Zinnia" bundle was delivered.  YAY.  So of course I had to open the stamp set and create a card to share with you today. Please read on to see how I made today's card.

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 Blackberry Bliss card stock for the layer.

A 3-3/4" x 5" piece of Basic White card stock was cut for the top layer and it was textured using the "Exposed Brick" embossing folder. I glued this piece to the Blackberry Bliss piece and then that was taped to the card base.

I cut a 3" x 2-3/4" piece of Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the "Flowering Zinnia" 12" x 12" package. I taped that to a 3-1/4" x 3" piece of Blackberry Bliss card stock and then I glued that to the front of the card. I use glue because I find that tape does not make 100% contact with the textured pieces and therefor will not hold as well and I know glue will hold.

The words are from the "Simply Zinnia" set and were stamped using BlackBerry Bliss ink on a scrap piece of Basic White card stock. I die cut them using the smallest die in the "Everyday Details" set.  I taped them to a piece of Blackberry Bliss card stock that I die cut with the next largest die in that set. Dimensionals were added to the back and the card was done.

This was a fun, quick and easy card to make. I like the look of the flowers with the Blackberry Bliss card stock, it's a nice contrast.

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

Like all the layers and the embossing. Pretty piece of that Zinnia paper. My mother used to have zinnias in her flower bed.
