Happy Thoughts Card by Therese

Hi Everyone,
Our DT Gal Therese has created a lovely floral card to share today.
I hope you enjoy it.


Ink:                   VersaMark, Hero Arts Chalk Ink - Latte, Distress Ink - Frayed Burlap

  1. Fold a Vanilla card base 280mm X 105mm in half.  Use the ink blending tool to add some Frayed Burlap to the edges.
  2. Cut Kraft card 130mm X 95mm.  Ink up the Friend Definition stamp with Latte and then lay the cardstock on top.  Use the brayer to ensure even coverage.  Then ink the edges with Frayed Burlap.
  3. Cut Jazz (reverse)130mm X 55mm.  Use the Goodbye Static pad and stamp the sentiment in VersaMark ink in the lower left hand corner.  Emboss in black.  Draw the flower stems with the Multiliner and ink the edges with Frayed Burlap.  Adhere this with double-sided tape to the right of centre on the Kraft background panel.  Then attach the panel to the card base with foam dimensionals.
  4. Stamp the flower image in VersaMark onto Cocktail and Red Jazz and emboss in black. Fussy cut these and affix to the card as shown with foam dimensionals.  Use glossy accents to glue the Dew Drops to the flower centres.
  5. Create the leaves by drawing them freehand with the VersaMarker onto Swingin paper, emboss them in black, fussy cut and attach with double-sided tape as shown.
