Thank You

Hello all,

Today, I'll be showcasing a thank you card I made using the awesome Floral Eye Dazzler Card Panel die from Frantic Stamper. This is such a great, versatile die that can be used for backgrounds with either contrasting colors, or even "tone-on-tone" variations.

I decided to try some colors that are outside my normal comfort zone for thank you cards. I wasn't sure if the berry/melon colors and browns would work, but I'm pretty satisfied with the results.  :)

I love the Arched Banner and Greetings stamp set and find it has many uses, not just for fancier cards, but even for more casual cards.

I wanted to connect something with the white banner, so went with some Fresh Snow ribbon from PTI and a dark chocolate button to match the matting behind the main panel.

I think I'd like to next try this die with some reds, blues, and whites for a pretty cool Fourth of July card! :)

Supplies Used:
Stamps: Arched Banner and Greetings (Frantic Stamper)
Dies: Floral Eye Dazzler Card Panel (Frantic Stamper)
Paper: Melon Berry, Berry Sorbet, Dark Chocolate, and Stamper's Select (all PTI)
Ink: Dark Chocolate (PTI); Onyx Black (Versafine)
Other: Dark Chocolate button, Fresh Snow ribbon, white twine (all PTI)


Thanks for visiting!
