Today I made a quick thank you card using a new stamp set called Lots of Lavender which will be one of the free choices you can make with a £45 order from the new Spring/Summer and Sale-a-Bration catalogues which launch on the 2nd January 2018.

I choice a piece of Whisper White cardstock and cut it down to 5¼” by 3⅜”. I stamped the outline bouquet of flowers in Crumb Cake ink roughly in the centre of the cardstock leaving space for a sentiment below. I inked up the blurry flower image in Sweet Sugarplum ink and stamped it over the top of the Crumb Cake flower to give a pretty watercolored look. I used both of the leaf images and a Pear Pizzazz ink pad to add colour to the leaves and did the stems in the same colour.

I coloured the bow using the bow stamp and Daffodil Delight ink. The sentiment is from my favourite, Thankful Thoughts stamp set and is stamped in Sweet Sugarplum ink. I rounded the upper left corner using a corner rounder.

I mounted the Whisper White layer onto a panel of Soft Suede cardstock with a rounded top left corner. I chose a Crumb Cake card base and added a strip of Sweet Sugarplum cardstock 5⅞” by 1¾” down the centre to add a touch of colour and interest before adding the stamped piece on top using Stampin’ Dimensionals. To finish the card off I added 3 of the Glitter Epoxy Shapes which will be available in the new catalogue in January 2018

I love the card but when I make it again I think I will colour the bow in purple or blue. What do you think?
