30 Day Gratitude Challenge: Day 13

Good morning and welcome to the midway point of the week!  I decided to make another combo card for today's gratitude card (killing two birds, you know) and as soon as I saw this weeks Create with Connie and Mary Color challenge I fell in love and knew I had to play along.  I decided to make a bright and cheery thank you card perfect for every day.  The cardbase is Coastal Cabana and I added a layer of Real Red and Whisper White cardstock.  The greeting is from the Perfectly Penned stamp set and was stamped on the Whisper White layer.

Next I added a piece of In Color Designer Series Paper that was matted with Smoky Slate.  One of my favorite flower stamp sets (perhaps since it has a coordinating punch) is the Mixed Bunch stamp set and I stamped the outline flower twice in Real Red before punching it out with the Blossom Punch.  I used a bone folder to curl up the petals before gluing them together.  For the center I stamped the circle piece and punched it out with the 3/4" Circle Punch and added a Real Red Candy Dot to the center (these candy dots are so fun and easy to use, plus you can get them in all our core colors, love it!)

This card is so cheery, it would certainly brighten up any one's day, and you could certainly change out the greeting to make it a birthday, thinking of you, etc. card, so easy!

Enjoy and have a great day!

Pin It!
