Tropical Thank You

 

Today’s “clean & simple” thank you card began with a Thick Whisper White card base and a layer of Whisper White cardstock. I embossed the white layer with a Petal Pair embossing folder, and turned it over to use the debossed side.

 

The embossing folder is 2 1/4″ wide, which would be just right for this week’s CAS(E) this sketch challenge.

 

Next, I used a die from the Tropical die set to cut ferns from Granny Apple Green and Call Me Clover cardstock. Then, I stamped tropical flowers from the Tropical Chic stamp set in three colors of ink: Poppy Parade, Real Red, and Berry Burst, and cut them with their die.

The flowers were “stamped off” to give a softer look, which means I inked the stamp, stamped once on scratch paper, and twice for the image you see. Make sense?

 

I arranged the ferns and flowers atop the debossed section with liquid glue and dimensionals. Oh, prior to adding the ferns and flowers, I stamped “Thank you” in Black ink. And, there’s my “clean & simple” card that was “quick & easy.”
