The first thing I did when creating my card was to stamp the pink leaves. Yes, the stamped background of my card was stamped using the leaf stamp from the Bold Blossoms stamp set. I simply stamped the leaves sideways. I used my Stampin' Up! paper grid to help me align the leaf images.
Next, I scored two small score lines towards the bottom of my card. I like how the score lines sort of separate the image part of my card with the sentiment portion of my card so I do this quite often. It's just another simple, quick way to add that little bit of embellishment.
I used the Blossom Bouquet triple layer punch to create the pink and so saffron portion of my flower. Then for the center of my flower I stamped the tiny flower image using chocolate chip ink and I punched it out using my 1/2" circle punch. Then in the center of my stamped chocolate stamped flower image I simply placed one basic pearl. The pink, yellow, and chocolate chip portion of my punched flower is raised up on my card using dimensionals.
And then all I needed to do to complete my card was to add my two other pearls in the center of the pink leaves and then stamp my thank you sentiment. I used my stamp-a-ma-jig to help me align my sentiment. I use this tool on almost every card, I wouldn't be without one.
Well, that's about it for today. Tomorrow I will share the last swap card I made for this 'scrap paper' card swap. Have a wonderful evening!
