Spotlight On Nature, Thank You Card, Stampin' Up!

Hello and welcome to my blog. Today I have a thank you card to share with you. Please read on to see how it was made.

The base of my card is a quarter-sheet of Gorgeous Grape card stock. It measures 4-1/4" x 5-1/2".

I cut a piece of Basic White card stock that measures 5-1/4 x 8". I folded it in half and taped it to the Gorgeous Grape base. It opens on the bottom and the fold is on the top. 

A 5-1/8" x 3-7/8" piece of Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the "Perennial Lavender" 12" x 12" package. I taped that to the front of the Basic White piece.

The floral image is from the "Spotlight on Nature" bundle. I stamped them using black Memento ink. I colored in the flowers using my light and dark Highland Heather Blends pens and the leaves were colored in using my light and dark Granny Apple Green Blends pens. I was amazed at how quickly the coloring went. The image took care of the highlighting so you just color and you're done.

I stamped the words from the same bundle using black Memento ink. Then I cut the piece out using the dies that came with the bundle.

I also cut a Gorgeous Grape circle from the same bundle. The two circles were layered and Dimensionals were added to the back.

A piece of ribbon was going to be added but I decided to just cut a strip of Basic White card stock and glue it down instead. That card stock measures 1/4" x 5-1/8".  I glued it in place centering it as much as I could by eyeing it. The two circles layered piece was set in place and the card was done.

This was a super easy card to make and I just love the colors. I'd love to use my Highland Heather Blends pen more but it's not coloring right, I think it's drying up. I guess I need to order another one.

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

Very pretty thank you card! Love the color and that stamp. (I'm trying to resist buying that stamp set.)
