Flowery Thanks

Hello folks!
Saturday already. Simon only went back to work Thursday and now he's off for the weekend, a two day week - not bad :) Hope you are all having a lovely 2013 so far.

Today I thought I would show a thank you card I made for Crafts Beautiful way back in the March 2012 issue. It was part of the Cut Out & Keep feature.

What you need...
Stamps: Curly Flowers (CG136); Thanks Flowers (CG137) - Hero Arts
Card stock: white, black, orange
Ink: Onyx Black - Versafine
Embossing Powder: Detail Clear - Stampendous
Promarkers: Amber, Bright Orange, Sunflower, Yellow, Lime Green, Ice Grey 1
Ribbon: lime green patterned
Rub-ons: Hunky Dory Alphabet (655085) - Sizzix
How you do it...
On a 10cm x 28cm piece of white card, score lines at 10cm, 20cm and 24cm, fold to create a double tent fold blank. Cover the facing inside panel with orange card. Stamp, emboss and colour in three long stemmed flowers, highlight around the edges with the Ice Grey 1 Promarker. Cut out, mount onto black card and trim.

Adhere two of the flowers to the orange panel, overlapping the top and left edges. Cut a wavy edge along a piece of 10cm wide card and attach to the base of the flowers.

Stick the remaining flower to the front panel, positioning it so it sits between the other two. Wrap and tie green ribbon around the bottom edge and tie in a knot on the left. Use rub-on letters to create the sentiment.

Ta da! There you have it. A cute, bright, cheerful card.
I did a pink card, a turquoise and lime card and a purple tag for the remaining projects. They were very bright and vibrant. I think this one would look really good in those colours too. It would make a lovely Mother's Day card.

Hope you like this little project. Thanks for stopping by, until next time.....xxxx
