Simply Zinnia, Timeless Arrangements, Thank You Card, Stampin' Up!

Hello and welcome to my blog. Today I have a card to share with you that I found on Pinterest. It's the scored lines that caught my eye. You can see the original card here. I did change it a bit. There were no instructions on how to make the card so I had to wing it. Please read on to see how I made my version of the card.

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Berry Burst card stock. I stamped the Zinnia from the "Simply Zinnia" bundle using Berry Burst ink. I only stamped around the edges since the majority of the card base will be covered.

I cut a 3-1/2" x 4-3/4" piece of Basic White card stock. I added 5 score lines. I with my card stock in my scoring board with the short side along the top, I scored the piece 5 times starting at 1" to 1-1/2". Then I turned my card stock so the long side was on the top and I made 5 score lines starting at 3-1/4" to 3-3/4".  
When doing the first set of score lines, only go down about 2-1/2". I placed my finger in that area so once my stylus hit it I knew it was far enough. Then when I turned the piece I scored down to those 5 score lines. You don't have to meet them perfectly, they will be covered.

The words are from the "Timeless Arrangements" bundle and were stamped using Berry Burst ink.

Next I taped the piece to the front of the card base about 1/4" from the top and 1/4" from the right edge. Make sure you tape the side of the card stock that does not have the bumps on.  You are taping the same side that was facing you on the scoring board. I made a tiny pencil mark on mine so I would see it and remember that this is the side to add tape.  

I fussy cut a zinnia from a piece of Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the "Flowering Zinnias" 12" x 12" package. I also cut two leaves. I didn't do a perfect job of fussy cutting and I usually just take a matching marker or Blends Pen and run the belly of the marker/pen over the edges. This time I just placed the flower between my thumb and middle finger and ran it over the ink pad like it was a cutting wheel. It covered my ugly cutting and it looks like I did a perfect job! Shhhh, don't tell anyone! LOL I should have taken a before and after pic. So once I got my "perfect" flower ready, Dimensionals were added to the back and I set it in place where the lines meet. I taped down the leaves.

A 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Basic White was added to the inside and the card was done.

This was a very quick and easy card to make and I really love those lines. They are simple and elegant.

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