Spring Thank You


Hi everyone, thank you for stopping by. I hope you are all having a great day.

Today's card was inspired by Anita Bowden's lovely card (shown at the bottom). I loved the clean and simple flowers with the greeting, and knew exactly what I wanted to do. The only thing that I really had to decide on was what type of card I wanted to create. I settled on "Thanks" because I can always use thank you cards.



To create this card, I stamped the upper flower and masked it off, I then stamped the second flower and the leaves to create a one layer look. The masking allows you to create the look of dimension without actually having dimension.

The flowers and leaves are coloured with copics.

I die cut the greeting using Lawn Fawn's "Thanks" die, three times and stacked them together. I coloured it using the darkest orange from the flowers and adhered it in place. To create a matching boarder, I used the same orange and just coloured along the edges of my layering piece to tie the card together.

I hope you all like today's card and are inspired to create something of your own.

This card is for:

  1. I would've moved the "thanks" over to the right so that none of it actually touches/overlaps the flower piece.
