So I have been VERY busy making Thank You cards this past weekend, here is 1 of the 5 I made. I decided instead of using cardstock die cut flowers I would use these silk flowers, I think it turned out pretty cute.

All of the cardstock is from Stampin’ Up. I used Coastal Cabana, Bermuda Bay, Whisper White, and Garden green. The Flowerpot is made from Stampin Up designer paper that looks like wood. The flowers were purchased from Stampin Up probably 10 years ago, they are part of the “Pretties” kit that they sold back then.
So I started making this card the way I start most easel cards and I cut and measured as follows
And I had an extra square that is 4 1/4″x 4 1/4. but somehow I must have measured wrong because the pieces didn’t line up the way they were supposed to, But I lined up the squares so the card would fold proper but the brace on the back didn’t line up where it should. The only problem was now the card wouldn’t stand upright. (sorry I didn’t take the photos in order) I also inked the edges with matching ink.
So I took a strip of paper and scored in every 1/2″ so it folded over itself 4 times, I did that twice. adhered them together and adhered them to the bottom of the back of the card front.
To decorate the card I used the flower pot die from Karen Burnistons. https://karenburniston.com/flower-pot-pop-up-die-set/
I used dimensionals to rais it up a bit.
I cut the vines and leaves out with a few dies, one is from Karen Burniston and the other is one from my stash. I pounced them onto a stamp pad to give them a bit of texture.
then I started decorating.
I used a circle die cut and added a sparkly yellow glitter, and some half back pearls to the flowers. I used a Stampin Dimensional to adhere to the center of the daisy.
I added the Thank You that I cut and layered 4 times to give it some dimension.
Lastly, I added faux raindrops for a little extra decoration.
