Unbounded Love, Thoughtful Wishes, Flowering Zinnias, 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 today's card was made.

The base of my card is a quarter-sheet of Melon Mambo card stock. It's a 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" piece.

I cut a piece of Basic White that measured 8-1/4" x 5-3/8". The piece was then folded in half.

The Designer Series Paper (DSP) is from the "Flowering Zinnias" 12" x 12" package. I cut the pieces at 3" long and 5/8" wide. I cut my piece of DSP at 3" x 3-1/8" and cut off the five 5/8".  

The Melon Mambo layers for the strips were cut at 3-1/8" x 3/4". I taped the pieces together. I actually matched up the image on the DSP so it flowed better.

I cut the floral piece using the die from the "Thoughtful Wishes" bundle on a piece of Basic White card stock. I add little dots of glue on the larger parts of the piece and I set it in place on the front of the card.

The words were stamped next. Kind of brave of me. Normally I would wait to glue the floral piece in case I mess up on the words! The words are from the "Unbounded Love" bundle and were stamped using black Memento ink. And that was it, the card was done.

I tried my had at strips again and I was successful! I LOVE it when they work out easily. I must be finally getting the hang of it! (it's about time!).  This was a fun card to make and I like the way the strips turned out but I'm not thrilled with the floral piece. I think something larger would have looked better. But it is what it is.

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