Note of Thanks

Here's the second card I created with the Don't Forget to Write kit by Papertrey Ink.  I love the colors I chose, which were taken from the spotted paper in the All is Calm dsp by Stampin' Up.

I cut a strip of the patterned paper and matted it with Lost Lagoon cardstock that I punched with the Scallop Border punch and glued it to a white card base.  I cut Soft Sky cardstock using the circle frame die and stamped the stripe/flourishes in Smoky Slate ink.

After cutting out the flowers and leaves with the matching dies, I stamped them in Lost Lagoon and Pear Pizzazz ink, using Silver Stickles for the flower centers.  I cut the word "note" twice from white cardstock and layered them for a bit of dimension.  I stamped "of thanks" on a tiny piece of Smoky Slate cardstock using the matching ink.  Then I glued everything in place.

I love the soft colors of this card!  I could easily make a set of these, now that the design process is done.  I really love the new Make It Market kit.  I'm waiting on a pack of Fresh Snow linen cardstock so I can make all the pretty cards in the instructions.  I'll post them once I do!
