My card this week uses some of my favorite TE dies – Shades of Thanks and a collection of coordinating flower and branch dies (listed below). I started with a kraft card base and layered it with dark brown and more kraft. Over that I used a bit of heart paper from Pebble’s Seen and Noted paper pad (that I’ve been hoarding). I die cut the thanks die three times out of aqua cardstock and layered them together to give it a chip board look. To great the flower embellishment I die cut the large and medium sized flowers out of red cardstock and layered them with foam tape between the layers. I die cut two the of the branches and trimmed them to different sizes and added on behind the larges flower and one in between the two flowers. Next I added a twine bow with a button on top. To finish off I added three green Sprinkles and it was done. This was a SUPER fun and quick card to put together.
Dies: Shades of Thanks (TE), Label Stacklets 6 (TE), Banner, Branches and Bloom die (TE), Patio Party dies (TE)
Paper: Seen and Noted (Pebbles), Kraft (TE), Bitter Chocolate (Bazzill), Aqua (Bazzill)
