Triple Thanks

This card happened by accident.  I had something else planned, but I have a neighbor boy who comes over and helps me with my flowers and weeds.  He sees me out there and just starts doing what I do.  He saw my cards the other day and asked if I would make him one.  This is to thank him for his help.  His favorite colors are purple and yellow.  Here is how I put it together:

  1. Stamped Sketchy Flowers with Memento Pistachio ink on Neenah Solar White cardstock.  Used Spellbinders Majestic Elements as die for the Bazzill base and the Sketchy Flowers background.
  2. Created die cuts from Basket and Grass dies using Bazzill Dotted Swiss colors.  The basket has a slit ready to take the Grass, (stems for the flowers).
  3. Created 3 sets of Spiral Daisy, Layered Floral flowers and leaves.
  4. Did 2 die cut sets of the Heart Stems.
  5. Die cut a Sign Post for the sentiment and stamped it with "Heartfelt Thanks" from Thank You clear set.
  1. Mounted the Sketchy Flowers background to the Bazzill carstock.
  2. Inserted the stems (Grass) into the basket and mounted with 3D pop-dots.
  3. Rolled the Spiral Daisies.  Kittie has a great tutorial on how to roll all of the IO spiral flowers.  See it HERE.  The only difference is I use Glossy Accents as glue.  I place it on the inside part as I roll and then on the bottom before I put a glue dot between the bottom and the round dot on the bottom.
  4. Mounted the Layered Floral flowers and leaves with glue dots and 3D pop-dots.
  5. Mounted white hearts on green heart stems and inserted in basket.
  6. Used Stickles glitter glues for the centers of the flowers and Viva Decor Yellow Glitter for the hearts
  7. Mounted sentiment and bow.  The grass on the basket is leftovers from Grass Border.
Hope your weekend was great and your week better.   Thanks for stopping by to look and share!!
