Thanks A Bunch Card
This card is made with items that are on the retiring products lists. It is a cheery springtime Thank You card.
I used the Occasions 4 You stamp set, which I have totally underutilized this year. It is a nice bold set, which can overwhelm some card layouts. This card layout is a Mojo Monday sketch from 2010. I like to use Mojo Monday sketches, but they aren't always the current sketch. Mojo Monday keeps an archive of their sketches and it's easy to browse them, or even print them off. I stamped the sentiment with Calypso Coral Classic Stampin' ink.
Your may wonder what designer paper I used on the card base. Did you notice that the Spring Occasions catalog had an extra cover this year? It was advertising the Sale-A-Bration. I took the cover off and used the inside as Designer Series Paper for this card base (Reduce, Reuse, Recycle!).
I used the 2013-2015 Designer Series Paper stack for the next layer. The scalloped paper is Calypso Coral card stock. The next layer is Gold Soiree Designer Series Paper. On top of that is Crisp Cantaloupe card stock then the top layer is Whisper White.
I used the large scallop edgelit for the bottom of the Calypso Coral layer. I used the Scallop border punch on the left edge of the Crisp Cantaloupe and then used the 1/8" circle punch to punch the little holes along the scallops. I used Boho Blossom for the flowers and Pistachio Pudding Thick twine for the ribbon and bow. Finish it off with a little glitz of rhinestones.
Have a blessed day,
