Patriotic Blooms Thank You Card

Happy Monday, G&P friends!

Did you enjoy Sandy's card last week? My computer crashed and Sandy filled in for me with her fabulous card - Thanks, Sandy!

This week I have a card for you, too. Red, white and blue are not just a great Patriotic color combo (in the USA), but a wonderful color combo for any time, especially when you pair it with G&P Accents and Embossing Powders!

Here's what you'll need from the G&P shop:

Stacey's Stacking Flowers (LA106)
Embossing Powder Micro White
Embossing Powder Pure Platinum
Enamel Powder Adhesive Fluid
Bling on a Roll Silver
Glastique Gloss

Other Supplies:
Stampin' Up! Cardstock: Crumb Cake, Night of Navy, Soft Suede
Stampin' Up! Classic Ink: Pacific Point, Real Red, Whisper White
Brown Twine
Versamark Watermark Ink
Stampin' Up! Stamps: Banner Blast, Hardwood, sentiment stamp
Foam Adhesive

Start by inking up the flowers. I found the easiest way to color the flowers is to place the flowers facedown directly onto the ink pad and gently press. Repeat until depth of color desired is achieved. Let dry.

Cut card stock to size for each flower set and trim. Using the Versamark and stamps, stamp each banner. Using the Embossing Powder Adhesive Fluid emboss the edges of the banners with the Pure Platinum.

Stamp the background panel with the Hardwood stamp and Adhesive Fluid and then emboss with the Micro White.

Stamp the sentiment on a scrap of white card stock.

Using the photos as reference, adhere the background panel. Adhere the flower layers together using the Glastique and again to adhere the flowers to the banners. Use the foam under the 2 smaller banners. Finish layering the elements and then tie on the twine.

Finish the card with a few pieces of the Bling on a Roll in Silver.

That's it - beautiful thank you card for any occasion!

Be sure to stop by again tomorrow for another fabulous creation...

Inky hugs,
