Peaceful Moments -- Thank You

Hi There!

Still have a bunch of Thank You cards to make and decided to do some coloring with Stampin' Blends Markers and the True Love Designer Series Paper.

PeacefulMoments_ThankYou

This card begins with a panel of striped background paper from the True Love Designer Series Paper.  The Light and Dark Polished Pink Stampin' Blends Markers were used to add color to the thin stripes on the panel.  The panel was adhered at the center of a slightly larger mat of Basic Black cardstock and then adhered at the center of the Polished Pink card base.  

The grouping of three flowers and a flower bud were colored with:  Light and Dark Polished Pink for the flowers and flower bud, Dark Pale Papaya for the flower centers, and Light and Dark Old Olive for the leaf.  The flower grouping was fussy cut with Paper Snips.  A piece of White Crinkled Seam Binding ribbon was adhered diagonally to create a flat bow without the knot with the tails of the bow pointing toward the upper right corner and toward the bottom of the striped panel.  The flower grouping was adhered over the ribbon using Stampin' Dimensionals.

The "Thank You" greeting, from the Peaceful Moments stamp set, was stamped on Basic White cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and die cut with the Stitched Rectangles dies (1" x 2-3/8").  The greeting was adhered near the lower right corner of the striped panel with the bottom edge of the rectangle 1/2" above the bottom edge of the striped panel and the right edge of the rectangle 3/16" from the right edge of the striped panel.

Three large Opal Rounds were adhered to the striped panel to create a visual triangle.

PeacefulMoments_ThankYou_Inside

A thin strip of Basic Black cardstock was adhered behind a strip of the striped background paper (with Light and Dark Polished Pink Stampin' Blends Markers applied to the thin stripes).  The pieces were adhered along the left side of a panel of Basic White cardstock so that the top, left, and bottom edges of the strips are flush with the top, left, and bottom edges of the Basic White panel.

A group of two flowers with two leaves was colored with Stampin' Blends Markers:  Light and Dark Polished Pink for the flowers, Dark Pale Papaya for the flower centers, and Light and Dark Old Olive for the leaves.  The flower grouping was fussy cut with Paper Snips and adhered at the upper left corner of the Basic White panel.

The "Life is better with a friend like you." sentiment was stamped at the right center of the panel using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  The Basic White panel was adhered at the center of the inside sentiment area of the card base.

PeacefulMoments_ThankYou_Envelope

Light and Dark Polished Pink Stampin' Blends Markers were used to color the thin stripes on the striped background paper.  The paper was adhered to the envelope flap of a Medium Basic White Envelope and Paper Snips used to trim the excess paper using the edge of the envelope flap as a guide.

You've really gotta love pink to appreciate this card, but the great thing about the True Love Designer Series Paper is that you get to pick the colors you want to use OR not to use any color at all!
