Very Vanilla Cardstock 

1pc - 5 1/4" x 5 3/4"

Scraps

Take your piece off 11"x 6" basic gray cardstock and score at 2 3/4" & 8 1/4". Fold on the score lines, towards the centre. so you fold from the left and fold from the right to form your 'gate'. make sure these line up perfectly and burnish well.

On the inside, add the largest piece of Very Vanilla cardstock.

close the 'gate' and add the two rectangular strips of Foil, then place the two strips of DSP on the top of that.

Stamp the Thank You sentiment from Ornate Thanks onto a scrap of Very Vanilla in Sahara Sand ink and trim to create two separate pieces. Layer these onto some foil scraps.

Adhere the remaining Sahara Sand, DSP and Foil together, then add the sentiment pieces with dimensionals to the centre. 

Add dimensionals to this panel, but make sure you only cover the left half. if you go any further across you run the risk of sticking in all closed! add this to the card front, paying attention to those diemnsionals on the back

Floral Essence Thank You Card



 Good Afternoon Everyone,

Today I'm using an oldie but goodie. The Floral Essence stamp set is super pretty and using the outline images means you can colour the flowers any colour you like! Here I've used quite a subtle colour palette.



Measurements

Soft Seafoam Cardstock 

1pc - 4 1/8" x 11 3/4", scored at 5 7/8"

Basic Black Cardstock 

1pc - 5 5/8" x 3 7/8"

1pc - scrap

Whisper White Cardstock 

2pc - 3 3/4" x 5 1/2"

1pc - scrap 


Create your card base by folding the Soft Sea Foam cardstock along the score line. Add one of the whisper white pieces to the inside and the basic black panel to the card front.

Take the outline floral image and using memento ink, cover the remaining piece of whisper white to create a background. Once the ink has dried,  colour in the flowers using a selection of Stampin Blends. Add a generous amount of wink of stella to the flower centres to add a bit of sparkle.

Add this panel to the card front.

Now, stamp the Thanks sentiment from Many Mates onto a scrap if whisper white and layer onto a scrap of basic black. I chose to butt it up to the edge on the right hand side and have a border round the other three sides but you can centre it if you prefer. Pop this onto the card front.

A super quick and easy card which you can switch up for any occasion and any colour way!!
