So Very Kind of You Girly Thank You Card

by Joanne James17. May 2015 10:00

It's Sunday and time for another challenge over at The Paper Players! There was some great inspiration using LeAnne's colour palette last week and this week it is the turn of the lovely Jaydee, who has a great CAS-themed challenge to get us creating this week:

 

Girly thanks - I immediately thought 'flowers' for this one and wanted to use some of the lovely 'Gold Soiree' specialty DSP. It's rather busy for a clean-and-simple card though, so I toned it down with a vellum overlay - take a look:

 

I matted a piece of DSP on some Garden Green with a base of Pistachio Pudding, then on a piece of vellum stamped my thank you sentiment from the 'Big on You' stamp set in Calypso Coral and Garden Green inks and then heat embossed with clear embossing powder to give it a lovely textured shine (although this is difficult to see in the photograph). I wrapped the vellum with a piece of Pistachio Pudding thick baker's twine and finished with single Calypso Coral flower stamped in the same colour using the 'Flower Shoppe' stamp set and punched out with the co-ordinating Pansy punch (the Garden Green leaves were a couple of wings punched with the Bird Punch) and a cluster of pearls. Here's a close-up of the flower, which echoes the pattern on the paper beneath the vellum overlay:

I then adhered the vellum overlay to the base using dimensionals, attached behind the flower and the stamped sentiment, so that they aren't visible on the top layer. I love these big, bold sentiment stamps and the floral DSP - both of which will be retiring at the end of the month, so if they're on your wishlist you should snap them up now before it's too late!

So that's my clean and simple floral thanks today - I'm also linking my card up over at SUO Challenges, where the current theme is 'fun flowers'. Before you reach for your inks and thank you stamps, check out what our amazing team has created to inspire you this week:

Love the vellum overlay here, Joanne.  What a perfect way to tone down the colors and really highlight the bold and beautiful sentiment.  It all adds such interest but still manages a clean and simple look.  Lovely, my friend!

Beautiful card, the way you used the Vellum really gave the DSP, which is gorgeous, a very soft and aery look, the bold sentiment takes center stage along with that beautiful flower.
Thank you for sharing.
Maria.

This Soiree pattern is probably my "favoritest" out of the whole catalog!  I love that you softened it with the vellum, too, makes it even prettier!  It looks complicated but it really is pretty simple with the single flower and the twine stems!  That big sentiment is perfect!

Wonderful card with such a muted tone from the vellum. I need to remember that technique! Love the large sentiments as well and they are a great way to hide adhesive!

Joanne, the vellum really does help to soften those bright colours and allows your sentiment to shine.  I also love the fact that you used the two colours for the sentiment to bring everything together.  Fabulous card
