Hello Everyone! It is Tracie and I am happy to be here today on Catherine's blog sharing a floral thank you card using product from the amazing Wild and Wonderful release. My card was inspired by the thank you for all you do sentiment in the Note of Thanks stamp set.
Have you ever performed stamp surgery? Well, that is how this card began. I was drawn to the curved line below thank you. I played around on scrap paper to see if a circle could be created with it. Yes, it works!!! You can accomplish this with masking, but I went with the stamp surgery method….just be careful if you go this route. Trim away for all you do so thank you and the curved line are together.
Cut a 3-3/4 inch square piece of premium white cardstock. Stamp thank you on the top center of each side. My color choice for the sentiment was Black Jack. You do need to be careful to make sure the lines touch. I overlapped in a couple of spots.
Now it is time for the interior of the circle. I stamped three of the tulips from the Focus on the Good Floral stamp set. They are stamped on premium white cardstock using Be Mine and Party Dress inks. I proceeded to use the coordinating die and die-cut the pretty tulips. I determined placement of the tulips and then stamped stems in Lime Rickey. Then I adhered the tulips with dimensional foam tape.
Finally it is time to use the “for all you do” part of the stamp. White heat emboss it on midnight cardstock. Trim and adhere using dimensional foam tape.
The BFF Background easily resembles a fence, so I clear heat embossed it on a midnight 4-1/4 x 5-1/2 inch cardbase. I did not like the white panel directly on the black cardbase, so I cut a 4 inch square white panel and applied Be Mine ink along the border. Much better and it looks nice with the tulips. The white panel and pink bordered panel are adhered with a tape runner and then attached to the cardbase with craft foam. I finished the card with some coordinating nuvo drops.
My style is simple. This card truly is really easy to create. Do not let all of the detail scare you. Take it in pieces. You will be amazed at your results! Happy creating!!
Thank you and have a beautiful day. – Tracie
