Hi Everyone: I have done a couple of Thank You cards over the past couple of weeks and thought I would share one with you.
I just got home from having brunch with 3 of my close friends. Sometimes there are months in between us getting together, so before Christmas we decided that we would meet every 1 - 2 months and we would take turns arranging something and it could be anything that would involve the 4 of us. Next time it's my turn to think of something for all of us.
With the cold weather we are now having, I thought I would like to do something Springy...I know it's pushing it a bit with below freezing temperatures (the sun is shining so that is a good thing). Plus I wanted to show case some of the new products from the Occasions Mini catalogue.
This card uses the Build a Blossom stamp and the matching punch. This stamp and punch will be versatile as you could use together or separately.
Stamps: Build A Blossom (w-121923 - $31.95, c-121994 - $22.95, p 12 Occasions Mini)
Paper: Baja Breeze, Not Quite Navy, So Saffron, Pear Pizzazz, Springtime Vintage DSP
Ink: So Saffron, Pear Pizzazz
Accessories: Versa-mark, Blossom Petals Punch (new), 1” Circle punch, Framed Tulips Embossing Folder, Big Shot, Pear Pizzazz Seam Binding Ribbon, Neutral Glimmer Brad, Clear Embossing Powder, Champagne Shimmer Paint.
The middle of the flower was stamped with versa-mark and then embossed with the clear embossing powder. The entire flower was sponged with the Champagne Shimmer paint to give it a bit of a glow.
The DSP was cut so that it fit inside the tulip embossing so that it appears to be framed.
Now, I am off to create a couple of more cards, so until next time...
