The flower center features a Basic Gray and Kiwi Kiss blossom, each snipped from Stampin' Up!'s new Urban Garden Designer Series Paper. They are adhered with Stampin' Dimensionals for some 3-D layering and land on a Basic Gray Circle and Kiwi Kiss Scallop Circle, both having been shaped with nestabilities circles and my Big Shot. THE PERFECT TOUCH: Tiny dotted accents created with a White Signo Gel Pen bring the background layers to life.
The 4.25 square base is Basic Gray textured card stock. A coordinating Urban Garden designer paper dresses up the lower left corner and counters with the same pattern in the Photo Corners Punch on the top right. The small photo corner is attached to a large Kiwi Kiss photo corner with Stampin' Dimensionals.
The diagonal banner consists of Kiwi Kiss textured card stock with a layer of Basic Gray textured card stock on top. TIP: I adhered these layers as rectangular strips across the card, one at a time, and flipped the card over to cut away the excess with my hobby knife–creating the "fitted" banner.
The sentiment is from Stampin' Up!'s new Thank You Kindly set (p.142 of the Fall/Winter Idea Book and Catalog). TIP: The four beautiful, versatile thank you stamps are priced right at $13.95. I love stamp sets that give a hefty bang for the buck! The card's sentiment was aligned in just the right spot using my Stamp-a-ma-jig (tutorial here). It's so nice to be able to see the image in different positions until the right one jumps out at you.
