Inspiration

Another card everyone needs lots of this time of year are THANK YOU cards. Here's one made with a wintery theme, using stamps from one of the ***Limited Edition*** sets - these are stamp sets that won't be available for purchase after the end of the year. This set is the Sunburst Flower 2 PreCut Set which coordinates with the Dahlia Spellbinders dies. That makes it easy to make a bunch of cards very quickly!

FLOWER

Clip between the petals and slightly shape the petals. Use a foam square between each flower to mount them to the blue diamond on the card in a dimensional stack. Finish the flower with a sparkling white adhesive dot in the center of the flower.

SENTIMENT

Cut/emboss a tag from blue paper. Cut a small strip of white paper measuring 7/8" x 2 5/8". Use the corner rounder punch to round all 4 corners of the white strip. Stamp the sentiment in red ink. Mount the white sentiment strip on the blue tag, and the blue tag on the bottom of the card front.
