Thanks So Much

For this card, I used a Heidi Swapp Chevron Mask to create the background by sponging Glacier and Flaxen inks over top of a White Daisy cardstock base.  I kept the most outer parts darker with ink while lightening as I worked towards the center.

I stamped the sentiment from You Mean the World to Me set, first inking it in Whisper, then rolling the bottom part in Slate, and then the very bottom in Black ink before stamping it onto a scrap piece of White Daisy cardstock.  Then punched it out with a 2 1/4" circle punch.

I turned the circle over and used a pencil to lightly outline where I wanted it to sit on my base, then I used a leafy image from the It's the Little Things (upcoming November SOTM) set and inked it in Black ink, stamping it around the circle.  I repeated the stamping with secondary stamping (by inking in Black ink and stamping it once onto scrap paper and then onto the card).

I cut a piece of new Slate Diagonal Striped ribbon and adhered it to the back of my circle piece, then used 3D foam tape to pop the sentiment up.

Lastly, I added some more leafy images and tiny Thistle flowers, and some Bitty Sparkles.

So pretty.  And soft.  Love it.  

Happy creating!  :)
