Bloom Where You're Planted Thank You Card

by Joanne James23. August 2021 09:00

Today I'm sharing a card that uses Lou's fabulous sketch over at Just Add Ink this week and is also my entry for the current challenge over at SUO Challenges titled 'plant life':


Before I show you my card, I need to say a big thank you to the team over at Just Add Ink for choosing my Dahlia card as their Top Pick last week - thank you ladies! If you missed that card, you can see it here. For this week's card, I was tempted to go with something clean and simple but instead decided that the ribbon divider on the sketch would give me the perfect focal point for a row of leafy plants - take a look:


Here's the low-down on today's card:

I've been wanting to fussy cut some of the plants from the 'Bloom Where You're Planted' designer paper for ages, so added a brick wall bottom border edged with some (retired) green ribbon, then added a selection of fussy cut, leafy pot plants:


I added a simple thank you sentiment from the 'Art Gallery' stamp set to complete my card - you can never have enough thank you cards!

Here is the visual summary of the key products used on today's project for you to pin for easy reference:


You can see all of my 'How To' summaries on my 'How To - Tips and Techniques' Pinterest board in case you've missed any. 

We are shopping for new school shoes amongst other things today - that can only mean one thing, the start of term is drawing near! Enjoy your day and I'll be back tomorrow with another project. Until then, happy stampin'!

This card is amazing.  I love the row of plants on the brick ledge.  They are absolutely perfect.  You are right--this paper definitely calls for lots of fun fussy cutting to have amazing plants.  And, the good news is, they will remain gorgeous even if you forget about them for awhile.

This is gorgeous, Joanne!  I love all the green colors in that DSP and your retired green ribbon is the absolute perfect touch for your row of potted plants.  Thanks for playing along with us at SUO Challenges, hope to see you again in the gallery for our challenge that just started!
