Spring Blossoms Thank You

Hello Friends,

It is Pam on the blog today!

Before we get started on today's card I wanted to let you know we are having a St. Patrick's Day day sale with savings up to 60% off selected stamps and dies.  The sale ends today at 9PM Pacific Time.  So hurry on over to the online store just click HERE.

For the card today I made a big beautiful flower arrangement for a special thank you card!

Design Steps:
1.  Start with an A2 white card base, cut a piece of white card stock 4 1/8 x 5 3/8 (run it through an embossing folder that looks like linen) and a piece of dark brown 3 1/2 x 4 1/2.  Glue the white to the white card base and then the brown to the embossed white slightly toward the top of the card as shown above
2.  For the blue panel I used a piece of light blue mulberry paper 8 1/2 x 11 cut into 4 equal pieces.  I then stacked them together and lightly sprayed both sides with water just so the paper is damp not soaked.  Place them in your embossing folder and then run through the machine 

3.  After you run the mulberry paper through the machine let it dry.  After it is dry use the largest Pierced Rectangle die and cut it with that die.  This makes a really cool effect and textured feel

4.  Cut all the pieces in white using the Spring Flowers in a Pot die.  After you cut them out color with copic makers.  This takes a little time but I love the shading you achieve
5.  Begin building you flower pot on the embossed blue mulberry paper.  I put a large dimension dot under the pot to give it a rounded shape
6.  Start to arrange you flowers using some dimension dots under some of the flower and glueing others flat
7.  After your flower pot is complete put some glue on the back of the mulberry paper and adhere it to the dark brown card stock on the front of the card
8.  Using the Expressions Thank You die cut out 3 on whtie card stock.  Glue the 3 together for added strength and dimension.  Glue them to the bottom of the pot and your card is complete
