Romantic Thanks

Good morning, Friends! Another week seems to be flying by! Nothing too exciting going on around here. I got some new toys yesterday and I am looking forward to spending some time playing!

Today's card is one I did for a swap last month. I really liked the way this one turned out! The black really makes a 'pop'! I started with a card base of Naturals Ivory and then took another piece of Naturals Ivory and ran it through the Big Shot using the Frame Tulip embossing folder. I cut around this before adhering it to the front of my card. Then I cut a piece of Basic Black with the Labels framelits die and adhered this to the card. Before cutting another framelit, I stamped the piece of Naturals Ivory card stock with the Apothecary Art stamp by coloring just the frame of it with a Basic Black marker. This is popped up onto the black frame. Then I stamped the flowers from Bordering on Romance in black StazOn onto Naturals Ivory card stock. I colored them in with a blender pen and Pool Party, Pear Pizzazz, More Mustard and So Saffron. I cut them out and added three brads before popping them up onto the card. Then I took a strip of Naturals Ivory card stock and stamped the greeting from Thank You Kindly. I flagged one end and tucked the other end behind the flowers. Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!
