The weather right now has a summery feel to it and it has got me thinking of flowers & bright summery colors, which inspired the color & theme for today’s card…
That plus I can’t stop using some of those beautiful In Colors that will be retiring very soon…why is it that when you know something is going away, you want to use it all the time and it becomes a favorite?! So yes, I will be stocking up on my Tip Top Taupe & Delightful Dijon items before they go – I don’t want them to leave – it’s too soon!
So here is my card – I have made a bunch of these as Thank You cards for my customers who have ordered with me this month…
You will find a link to my printable/downloadable Project Sheet detailing all measurements, the colors I used & full instructions on how to make this card below – look for the red words…
Isn’t that yellow color just beautiful? Delightful Dijon is like an elegant yellow color and it reminds me so much of sunflowers – I have a couple of sunflower plants growing right now and have managed to protect them from the deer so far this year, so fingers crossed I will actually get some flowers on them!
I used the Whisper White Thick card stock for my card base – it you haven’t tried it, you really should because it is perfect for card bases – thicker than the regular white cardstock so that it stands up firmly without sliding down – it will quickly become part of your ‘can’t do without’ stash!
I used a die from Stylish Stems Framelits to die cut my flower shape (LOVE those dies!) and layered it onto a piece of Delightful Dijon card stock that I embossed using the Petal Burst Embossing Folder to continue my flower theme…
The ribbon is Delightful Dijon 5/8″ Mini Striped Ribbon and over it I wrapped a piece of Linen Thread to give a little bit of a rustic feel to my card.
The sentiment is from the set One Big Meaning – oh how I love that stamp set – it features a bunch of different thank you themed stamps and I think I have used every single stamp in it – it’s not often I can say that!
