Hi everyone!  Today I'm posting another swap card that I made.  The cards for this particular swap were to be created using up our paper scraps.

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!
