Today, I have a thank you card to show you using the Greenhouse Gala designer paper that's on special offer at the moment (only £7.00 instead of £8.75). This range of papers includes some really show-stopping designs as well as some more muted patterns and is a real favourite of mine.
I chose two different tone-on-tone papers in the same colour for this card and stamped straight onto the background with the Medallion stamp to divide them.
The underside of the flower is this sizzling Missoni-style design. I like the way you catch just a glimpse of it when the card is lying down.
You can make some amazing 3D flowers using the Stampin' Up punches but I have fallen in love with this camelia-shaped flower you get when you layer with the fancy flower punch.
Here's how to make this card:
- Cut a 9cm x 18cm piece of Whisper White card stock. Score and fold it into a card base.
- Cut a 7.5cm square piece of the tone-on-tone designer paper. Ink up the medallion stamp with Garden Green ink and stamp in the bottom left-hand corner. If you have time, sponge the edges of the paper. Attach to the card front.
- Stamp the sentiment using Basic Black ink and a stamp-a-majig for accuracy.
- Cut three flowers using the fancy flower punch. Stack these together and snip all three at once between the petals towards the centre. Pierce a hole in the centre of the three and fasten together with a large Circle Ice brad. Arrange the petals.
- Fix onto the card front using glue dots or Sticky Strip.
Stamps: Medallion, Just Believe (sentiment)
Ink: Garden Green, Basic Black
Card stock: Whisper White
Other: Greenhouse Gala designer paper, Circle Ice brads, fancy flower punch
I have a bonus card to show you today! My daughter recently went on a ski trip with her school and my lovely friend (who is slim and gorgeous like my daughter!) kindly lent her lots of ski clothes and equipment. When she returned and we laundered everything and packed it up ready to go back, I suggested that my daughter might want to add a thank you note. This is the result:
She made a ski slope using my favourite masking and sponging technique and the Lovely as a Tree stamp set! My clever girl!
