A Special Thanks

Today’s card is pulling double duty as I am entering it into the Global Design Project #55 theme challenge and the Pals Paper Arts #320 sketch challenge.


My card today is actually a thank you note for a random act of kindness that was shown to me…


Clean and simple cards do not come easy to me, so I was very pleased that this one worked out as well as it did.

Here are the details:

  • The card base is Very Vanilla and the mat is also Very Vanilla cut 1/4″ shorter.
  • I used the small leaf framelit from the Paisley Framelits Dies and cut a column of leaves.  HINT:  place the sentiment first to determine the leaf placement.
  • The sentiment is from the Floral Phrases stamp set and is stamped in Cajun Craze ink.
  • The panel underneath the leaves was sponged with Cajun Craze, Cherry Cobbler and Crushed Curry ink and glued to the card base.
  • The leaf panel was popped up using Foam Adhesive Strips down each long side.


  • The inside is embellished with a few little stamped leaves…just the perfect touch for a blank notecard.
  • The envelope is also embellished with a panel of stamped leaves.


Here are a few promotions Stampin’ Up! has for us…..



Thanks so much for stopping by today.
