This week, someone went out of their way to help me in such a tremendous way and I really wanted to express my heartfelt thanks and appreciation to this gentlemen. What better way to say ‘thanks‘ than with a handmade card. And what better way to deliver heartfelt thanks than by using the “Heartfelt Blooms” stamp set.
Heartfelt Thanks to FMS, too!
This sketch by Freshly Made Sketches was the perfect starting point for my card.That large circle shape just begged to be filled with the awesome Heartfelt Blooms stamp. This is what I came up with:
I am pleased with the way this card turned out. You can visit the FMS blog to be inspired with how others interpreted this sketch.
I started with a rectangle of whisper white and stamped the floral image in Bermuda Bay ink in the lower left corner. I used Dapper Denim ink to stamp the sentiment (also from the Heartfelt Bloom stamp set).Next I layered this panel with a rectangle of Bermuda Bay card stock and wrapped it with Bermuda Bay ribbon. I had some of my favorite 1/4″ white cotton ribbon (retired) that I layered over the ribbon to tone it down a bit. A few of the Tutti-Frutti adhesive backed sequins in Pool Party were added for a bit of embellishment. Then that whole layer was adhered using Stampin’ Dimensionals onto a Dapper Denim card base. Quick and Easy! But the end result makes it look like I spent a lot of time on this card, thanks to the awesome Heartfelt Bloom stamp set.
