Stampin’ Up! Floral Phrases Thank You Card

Thank you card with flowers cut from Very Vanilla card stock to allow the Perfect Plum card stock to show through.One of my very favorite bundles in the 2016-2017 Stampin’ Up! annual catalog is Floral Phrases. There are wonderful sentiments as well as delightful delicate Detailed Floral thinlits dies. So…. once again I’ve turned to it to make a card for a very special gal.

The first image above shows the placement of the Detailed Floral thinlits dies on the Very Vanilla card stock panel, and the second image shows the Very Vanilla panel adhered to the Perfect Plum card stock panel.

The card is finished with the sentiment, stamped in Perfect Plum, and embellished with Elegant Eggplant baker’s twine.

Completed card front with sentiment, "A special note of thanks to you...," and Elegant Eggplant baker's twine.

Hello You Thinlits

Watermelon Wonder card stock is the base of the card. Adhere to that card stock is a panel of flowered designer paper framed by a rectangular piece of cooper foil. The bottom third of the front contains a die cut "Thanks" from copper foil.

A card can’t get much simpler than this!

Use liquid multipurpose glue to adhere the copper foil panel 1/8″ below the top of the card front. To that center the panel of Affectionately Yours Specialty designer series paper.

Use the appropriate thinlit to cut out the “Thanks” sentiment from copper foil. Adhere the sentiment to the card front using the Fine Tip Glue pen. You may wish to weight the card for about ten minutes to be sure the sentiment adheres very well. To do that I like to place the card under a piece of wax paper and then stack some weight on top—consider using stamp blocks or books.

Timeless Texture

Butterflies are delicate delightful creatures. I love using the Butterflies Thinlits with a variety of stamp sets.

In this case I stamped the lower portion and left side of the front panel in smokey slate and a bit of splotches  in wisteria wonder with stamps from the Timeless Textures stamp set. The sentiment came from the One Big Meaning stamp set. The large butterfly was cut from wisteria wonder card stock using the Butterflies Thinlits.
