Sometimes I do stupid things. I recently ordered some of the Tropical Escape Designer Series Paper. After all, it is on sale! What I thought I ordered but apparently didn’t is the stamp set and Framelits that are part of the same suite. It’s on the list. So as I went to make some thank you cards, I had to improvise. I think the Accented Blooms stamps set filled in quite nicely.
The layout of this card was inspired by this week’s sketch challenge at CAS(E) this sketch! If you click on the banner below, it will take you to their site and you can see some other cards using this sketch. I’m sure you’ll be inspired.
Design Notes for Accented Blooms Thank You Card:
Well, you know that I wanted to start with the Tropical Escape Designer Series Paper. I just love the colors and even added one for myself – Melon Mambo. Melon Mambo isn’t one of the colors in the paper but I think it compliments the designs.
If you look at the samples at CAS(E) this sketch!, you’ll see that most everyone used a piece of paper in the middle. Since there are such terrific ribbons that coordinate with the Tropical Escape Designer Paper, I decided to use those. Each card has some Gray Granite and some Granny Apple Twist 1/2″ Textured Weave Ribbon.
After I stamped the sentiment with Blushing Bride, I used the Tailored Tag Punch to cut it out. Next I sponged around the edges of the punched out piece. The Starburst Punch and some Melon Mambo card stock gave the right amount of bright color. The final touch – some Glitter Enamel Dots.
