So, back to my original theme! It’s a bit of a mouthful but I wanted it to be clear so you can search again for this later on if you want to! This card evolved from many different colours and versions. Does that happen to you sometimes – things you think should work just don’t? This was one of those cards, but I’m glad I persevered because I like how it turned out in the end!

  • First, cut Pear Pizzazz card stock (European A4 size) with the short edge at the top; cut at 10.5 cm & score at 14.9 cm.
  • Next use Whisper White for your first layer cut 14.4 x 10 cm and run it through the Big Shot with the new Dynamic Layered Leaves Embossing Folder (sooo pretty!)
  • Cut a piece of A Whole Lot of Lovely Designer Series Paper to 10 x 8 cm and attach to the Whisper White piece in the centre.
  • Attach these layers now to the front of your card base.
  • Next you cut a Whisper White Scalloped Oval use the Layering Oval Framelit Dies. The piece of card to use is 9 x 7 cm.
  • Now cut a piece of Crumb Cake card stock with the Friends die from the Lovely Words Thinlits (same size).
  • Stick the Crumb Cake over the Whisper White. Mount onto the paper with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • Stamp “Thanks” from Lovely Inside & Out stamp set in Pear Pizzazz on a piece of Pear Pizzazz card stock.
  • Punch out with the Classic Label Punch keeping the word to the right end of the punch and attach with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • Tie a knot in Crumb Cake Classic Weave Ribbon and glue dot onto the Thanks label.
  • Using a Glue Dot attach a sprig of leaves from Touches of Nature Elements. These are really cute wooden elements that add an extra touch of “va va voom” to your card! It also balances out the sentiment & ribbon on the left.

Top Tip:

I recommend you always cut a few sheets of a new A4 pack in half. They are then ready to grab when you need them. Keep them in the front of your card pack so you know what colour they are.
