Hello everyone! We are starting a couple of new features over at My Creative Time. On the Thursday between "Designer Challenges" we will be doing either "Thrifty Thursday" or "Thoughtful Thursday". And today, it's time for "Thoughtful Thursday". This is when we will make something for someone else. It could be Get Well, Congratulations, Encouragement, Cheer Up, etc. Isn't that such a neat idea?
I made this "Thinking of You" card. You can never have enough of those on hand. The white cardstock and green cardstock are from Recollections. The yellow striped paper in the background is Doodlebug Design ~ Petite Prints.
I modeled this flower off the shape of a topiary tree I saw in a magazine. I used the MCT ~ Flower Petal Dies to make all of these super pretty flowers. All of the patterned papers for the flowers are from the Echo Park ~ Hello Summer collection. I curled up the petals to add dimension and added little pearls to the centers for some bling.
To create the stem, I used the "Thinking of You" sentiment from the MCT ~ Just A Little Note stamp set. Since it's a straight stamp, I just angled it on the block to create the fun curve. The ink is Cottage Ivy ~ Memento Ink. For the leaves, I used one of the mustache shapes in the MCT ~ What's Growing On? stamp/die set and just cut it in half. The paper for the leaves is Doodlebug Design ~ Petite Prints. And I put the leaves on pop dots for dimension. At the very bottom of the card, I used the "Love you..." stamp from the MCT ~ This and That stamp set to look like a little bit of grass.
I also put the whole top layer, starting with the green, on pop dots for extra dimension. That's it. So pretty and ready for Spring. Make sure you head on over to My Creative Time to see what the rest of the Design Team has created. I will see you all again soon. Have a great day my creative friends!
