You Always Do The Nicest Things

In part that’s what today’s card is all about.  The other part is I noticed it would qualify for the CHALLENGE over at The Paper Players


This is their sketch…

...This is my card


I think ‘Thank You’ are one of my most needed cards.  I thought using the Happy Greeting set would say it all.  I began with the beautiful Paisley Petals DSP, snipping out two flowers from two different sheets and mounting one on top of the other.  I omitted the ‘happiness’ from the one stamp, which gave me just the word ‘Always’ for the sentiment on the front.  A few silver flatbacks mixed in with a few rhinestones gave me my bling.

Looking a little closer ~


From this angle I think you can tell where I added dimensionals for a little extra depth and the placement of the rhinestones around the center of the flower.

Looking inside ~


Another little bit of snipping for the flower inside and another stamp from the same set.  The only thing I could wish for is that the ‘Always’ stamp on the front and the stamp I used inside were in the same font.  Maybe I should not have mentioned that……would you have noticed? *smiles*

Supplies needed ~ All are SU! unless otherwise noted

  • Card stock – W. White, B. Breeze and A. Artichoke
  • Tools – Happy Greeting stamp set and Beautiful Wings die
  • Misc. – Clear EBP, Heat Tool, dimesionals and Basic Rhinestones, silver flatbacks are from my stash

This wraps up another week for me and you know come Monday it’s a whole new month…….AUGUST!  Can’t believe it!  But I can get excited about beginning to make FALL CARDS!!

Gorgeous way to incorporate the two challenges, Linda! I found that paper intimidating, so I am happy to see another way to use it!

I'm here from LeAnne's and I'm not going to lose your site. I'm putting it on my blog so I can't forget.

I recently relocated and was amazed at all the stamping paraphernalia that had to be loaded, then unloaded, and is waiting to be re-established in my spare room. (I should be ashamed) But I also lost all my stamping sites when I lost my old blog to a hacker.

LOVE this card. There's too many people who I need to send this one to. Thank you for the inspiration.
