Happy Wednesday! The sun is shining and there are signs of spring! The day is the inspiration for this bright and sparkling thank you card.
I started with an off white base card from WorldWin and stippled a light layer of Stream (Ranger) just around the edges. (Just got a new camera and still working on the color settings but this is pretty close.)
Next I cut my glitter paper to 5 x 3 3/4. I then ran it through the Cuttlebug upside down so the image would be recessed. I then cut out the flowers from a Sizzix die then embossed them. I used some fun K & Co. paper that is double sided. I also cut out one flower of the glitter paper and embossed it as well.
I used a pretty ribbon to wrap around the the glitter layer and attached all that to the card front. Next I attached the ribbon tails that would peek out from the flower. I stacked the flowers and put a brad in the middle. The brad was not the correct color so I put a little glue on the brad top and glittered it to match. I then attached the flower to the card front with some foam tape.
Last, I used the same stream ink and stamped Thank You on a scrap of the plaid paper. I trimmed it out with deckle edge scissors and layered it on a scrap of the base card and stippled it as well. I popped the words up with foam tape and attached to the card.
I hope you have enjoyed today's card. Happy Spring to you all!
