Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Basics Flower Thank You Card

Today I have a Quick and Simple Card to show you.  I needed a card quickly.

Here’s my card-hope you like it!  I cased it from someone but can’t find the original card.  This card uses a simple technique.  The Thank You  was stamped on a piece of  Post It Note so that it had ‘sticky’ under it.  Then trimmed closely.  Stamped the Thank You where I wanted it and then covered it exactly with the post it note.  Stamped the flower on to of it.  After stamping the flower (make sure the sentiment is good and dry),  heat emboss with Clear Stampin’ Emboss  Powder.  Then color in the flower and leaves using the Stampin’ Write Markers.

I choose Basic Black Cardstock as the base,  Peekaboo Peach as the accent card Stock.  Here are a list of the Stampin’ Up! products that I used in making this card.

Lemon Lime Twist and Emerald Envy Smiling Card!

Got so excited when I saw the new Post Script Stamp in the new catalog.  Oh,my, so much fun.  It is a background stamp I had to use it first!  It is a large stamp, lovely full back ground for a regular card face or stamp it and cut up the stamped image to suit your design.  The square Very Vanilla Card Stock was stamped using Emerald Envy Ink.  Then I looked all over the stamp and found the perfect square for this card.  Die cut out and layered it with Emerald Envy and Lemon Lime Twist.  See below for a list of the products that I used on this card.
