Three Flower Thanks
Today's card made me very, very happy until I stamped the word "thanks" crookedly...even though I used a stamp positioner because I'm AR/OCD that way. I blame the fact that the stamp is double-mounted, and I hate double-mounted stamps. In reality, my hand slipped.
So now the "thanks" is popped up, which isn't exactly what I wanted (it would have looked much better stamped on the card base...straight) but it will do. The thanks is just the first part of the "thanks so much" stamp that comes in the Three Little Words set from SU.
I stamped the flower stems in Always Artichoke on Papertrey's vintage cream cardstock. Then I stamped the blossoms on scraps of vintage cream in Rose Red, cut them out, and glued them in place by putting glue only at the base of the blossom and leaving the tulip points unglued. I wanted to curl the points up a bit for some added dimension.
The card is 5" square.
Supplies: Papertrey Vintage Cream cs, SU rose red cs; SU's Three Little Words stamp set, Hero Arts "heartfelt"; dimensionals.
