Stampin' Up Flowers of Friendship Thank You Card for Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop

Welcome to another blog hop with Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop. We are creating cards with a color challenge this week.  I am super jazzed to see what everyone comes up with.  Thanks for hopping by!

I used Stampin' Up Flowers of Friendship Bundle.  I created a thank you card that is super easy and can be created by any level card makers.

I dry embossed a panel of Basic White card stock with Stampin' Up Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered the Basic White panel to a panel of Real Red card stock.

I stamped flower images from Stampin' Up Flowers of Friendship Stamp Set with Highland Heather, Real Red and Polished Pink ink on coordinating card stock.

I punched each flower out with Stampin' Up Flowers & Leaves Punch.  I punched leaves from a strip of Granny Apple Green with the same punch.

I adhered the flowers and leaves to the card front with Multipurpose Liquid Adhesive and Stampin' Dimensionals.  

The sentiment was stamped with Real Red ink on a piece of Highland Heather card stock.  I punched the sentiment out with Stampin' Up Double Oval Punch.  I adhered a piece of Stampin' Up Real Red Double-Stitched Satin Ribbon to the card front with Mini Glue Dots.  I adhered the sentiment punch over the ribbon with Stampin' Dimensionals.

I finished the front off with Stampin' Up Polished Dots in the center of each flower.

I adhered the card front to a Polished Pink card base folded in tent fashion.

The inside of the card is a Basic White panel with the sentiment and flower image from SU Flowers of Friendship Stamp Set.  I adhered the Basic White to a panel of Real Red card stock.

Thanks so much for hopping by, up next is Terry Lynn Bright.
