Serenely Thinking of You

Here is a dainty, sweet card for anyone on your mind. This is a quick and easy card to make. I have used supplies that are no longer current in the catalog, but are in my stash. Either way, I like the colors and the layout. I hope you like it as well.

Stamp Sets: Serene Silhouettes, Wetlands

Paper: Whisper White 2 X 4, Tempting Turquoise 5 3/8 X 4 1/8, Basic Black 3 X 4
Ink: Tempting Turquoise, Basic Black, White Gel Pen

Technique: Sponging
Accessories: 16" Black Grosgrain Ribbon, Scallop Trim Border Punch, Scallop Oval Punch, Large Oval Punch, Perfect Polka Dot Embossing Folder, Basic Pearls, Dimensionals, Adhesive

First, stamp the flower silhouette onto the 2 x 4 Whisper White card stock, using the Tempting Turquoise ink. Take your sponge and sponge the edges of the white card stock with your Basic Black ink. Use only a small amount of ink so as to not over power the flower silhouette. Then take your Basic Black 3 X 4 card stock and punch the 4" sides using the Scallop Trim Border punch. Center the silhouette flowers onto the black scallop trim border card stock and glue them together.  Take your Tempting Turquoise and run it through the Big Shot, using the Perfect Polka Dot embossing folder. Adhere the flowers onto the left side of the Tempting Turquoise card stock. The 1/4" Black Grosgrain ribbon should be tied onto the bottom of the card next. Take the Tempting Turquoise card stock and glue it onto the white card. Take the basic pearls and glue one onto each flower.  Next, take the sentiment, Thinking of You, and stamp it with Tempting Turquoise on a scrap piece of white card stock. Cut it out using the Large Oval punch. Sponge the edges using Basic Black ink, again use very little ink. Use the Oval Scallop punch on a scrap piece of Basic Black card stock, and then adhere the sentiment onto it centering it. Using the white gel pen, dab a dot on each of the scallops. Use dimensionals to place it onto the right hand side of the card. I slanted mine a bit, just because...  Remember to trim your ribbon using your ribbon scissors. Like I said, it's a snap!
