Thank You card


Hello, Today I made a card using  a stamp and orange ink called Tangerine Tango by Stampin Up. The 3 paper prints are also by Stampin Up.

The flowers are punched out then on the top layer I cut between each section so I could roll the petals up. I scrunched up each flower towards the center to give them shape. I then used a glue dot to add the dew drops in the centers.

The red and orange Dew Drops are from Miriam's Crafting Supplies. You can find them here http://miriamscraftingblog.com/supplies.html

The leaves are cut using Cricut cartridge Mother's day Bouquet. The swirls are the negative shape from where I punched out a border. The die cut in 3 sizes is a Spellbinders die.

The red and orange papers are by Colormate and Recollections.

The card is 4 1/4" x 5 1/2".
