Wow, I'm so glad it's the weekend. Well, almost the weekend anyway. I have a veritable mountain of cards to create for various things plus we're going to the Back to the 50s Car Show on Sunday for Father's Day. I'm kinda looking forward to that actually but I'm not sure how you can possibly see 11,000 cars in one day. Here's hoping the weather cooperates!
So, on to the card. Today I have a thank you card to share with a slightly off beat layout.
The card base is a half sheet of Melon Mambo folded with a couple of asymetrical strips of designer paper banding the middle and another of Neenah Solar White stamped. The designer paper is Springtime Vintage - love that paper!. I cut a 2 x 4.25 inch piece and then cut it at an angle lengthwise so that I had 3 pieces. I flipped one of the pieces over and adhered that below the middle piece and then repeated the cut with the white after I'd stamped it. That snappy, bold thanks is from Close to My Heart (Thank You). Note: the pink rick-rack is from May Arts, and I wrapped the ends of the piece under the middle designer paper piece before I adhered it to the card.
The flowers are two EK Success punches. I used Pretty in Pink for both and then added a couple of Martha Stewart small leaf punches to either side. A small white flower brad in the middle holds the flowers together.
Thanks for stopping by today! Enjoy your weekend!
