"Thanks" card with flower

Our April card making class comes with a wide variety of cards. You can always exchange the phrase with something else if you like.

This card measures 4 1/4" x 5 1/2", is folded on the left and has rounded corners.

The Creme Brulee cardstock is cut about 1/4" smaller than the base and has also all four corners rounded.

I raised both the cardstock and the white flower piece with foam dots. But if your dots are to thick, just raise one of the two layers.

Before you start stamping the phrase, cut and adhere the green poka-dot strip to the creme brulee cardstock.

Now it is easier to stamp the phrase just above the strip and to the right.

Last cut a flag into the right end off the silver glitter paper. Adhere strip to card and cut excess on the left of.

Following this order you will always get the perfect positioning of you stamping with out fighting to get it straight :-) 

The flower stamp is from the "A Budding Friendship" (D1602) stamp set from Close to My Heart.

The full image of the flower is stamped in Sunset Ink while the outline is stamped in Cranberry Ink.

I added another technique to give the flower a more detailed and dimensional look. I used a red pencil, one that matches the ink and place a few extra pencil strokes to the layout. Just flick the pencil for the center up. 

How about joining one of my monthly card making classes? They are so much fun and you will go home with cards, sometimes boxes and so much more. Feel free to contact me for upcoming schedules and if you like to purchase one of the cards from my blog...
