Stampin' Up Occasions Mini Rue De Fluer Stamp Set

Hello Folks,  welcome to the week end.  I'm always looking for cute ways to make Thank You cards to send out to customers that order on line.  Today I have a Thank You card that would put a smile on anyone's face.

My cardbase is cut at 5.5 by 8.5 and scored at 4.25.  My colors are Island Indigo (122923), Lucky Limeade (122926) and new designer paper from the Occassions Mini called Twitterpated (125406).  I just fell in love with the pretty floral background in Riding Hood Reds, Baja Breeze, Ilsand Indigo and Blushing Bride. 

Next is an Island Indigo panel cut at 3 x 4.  Of course I used my favorite border punch the Scallop Trim Border Punch (118402) for that extra feminine touch.  My stamp set is also from the Occasions Mini called Rue Des Fleurs (W125485/C125487 ), just a little French don't you think.  I used some markers to color my image (Baja Breeze, Rose Red, Blushing Bride and Island Indigo).  I find markers can be just a touch harsh, so I try to use a very light touch and I like to have a very firm nib.  When your nib starts to look like a sponge it will spread your color in places that you don't want, when this happens its time to purchase a new one.  Just food for thought here.  For some sparkle and dimension I also applied some Dazzling Diamonds Glitter Glue (124117).

Flag Tag made with a square punchMy sentiment was stamped on a strip of Whisper White and I made a flag tag out of it.  You can do this easily by using one of you square punches, insert it in one corner, line your corner in the middle of your strip and punch.  It takes a little practice, but time well spent. 

Oh, I almost forgot my background piece.  I used our Elegant Bouquet (115964) Embossing Folder with my Big Shot.  To make it more noticeable and bring it to the forefront I used the end of a paintbrush and some white acrylic paint and made dots for the center of the flowers.  I think it works beautifully, don't you.

Well, that all for me folks, hope you enjoyed todays project and it inspires you to make one yourself this week end.  If you need supplies please click on my link provided below.  I'm here to help with all your stamping needs.  Have questions?  I'm just an email away.  Have a wonderful day today and everyday as far as that goes.  Toodles
