A sweet appreciation card is what I have to share today.  It stars a few Sale-A-Bration items that add definition and fun to the card.


Stampin' Up!, Thoughtful Expressions, Softly Sophisticated, Designer Tags, flight and airy, jackie beers


Stamp Bundle

The sweet background for this card is made with DSP, that I will get to in a minute, and the gorgeous Embossing Folder that is part of the Softly Sophisticated Bundle.  This is a Sale-A-Bration Bundle.  You can see the fun design the embossing folder leaves.  It works great with the variegated color in the DSP.

The stamps from this bundle are what created the flowers in the focal center.  The greenery is one stamp and the flowers another.  To create this scene I stamped twice.  Actually I die cut the shape prior to stamping.  This made it easier to fill the area than to try to gauge how much space I had.

Focal Layers

There are two focal points on this card and they actually work well together.  The first is the floral area.  The Softly Sophisticated flowers are die cut using the second largest of the Thoughtful Expressions Dies from the Mini Catalog.  These are a bundle in the Mini Catalog.  I love both of the layering shapes in this die set.  They are both unique shapes and multiples of each.

The second focal point is the tag.  This tag is from the Designer Tags Dies.  It is a die set in the Annual Catalog.  The sentiment is part of the Softly Sophisticated stamp set also.


The papers on this card are minimal.  I used Basic White Thick card stock for the card base as I wanted the focal layers to pop.  And the fun variegated blue is from the Flight & Airy Designer Series Paper, a Sale-A-Bration paper.  It is one of the reverse sides of the birds.


The focal layers are raised with Stampin’ Dimensionals and layered over each other.  I used the White Baker’s Twine colored with a Boho Blue Stampin’ Write Marker to make the little bow.  This needed a small bow and coloring Bakers Twine is an easy way to do that.  The final touch is a scattering of Iridescent Pearls.
