It's time for the next challenge in Kylie's International Blog Highlights where the theme is "Thank You", and projects voted in the top 10 go on to participate in Kylie's Winners Highlights Hop later in the month.
I was in a stamping kind of mood when I made this card and chose some of my favourite colours - Fresh Freesia, Highland Heather and Gorgeous Grape to stamp the flowers from the All Things Fabulous Stamp Set, along with some Smoky Slate leaves.
I started with a Basic White Thick 5 3/4" square card base, with a 5 1/2" square Basic White Panel, which I then wrapped the Metallic Mesh Ribbon around the centre and tied off in a bow at the top.
Next I stamped different coloured flowers, including the little spray of flowers, die-cut lots of Basic White stems from the Flowers of Home Dies and began placing them on the panel to make a wreath, some attached and some mounted, finishing off the centre with a silver stamped sentiment on a silver foil scalloped circle and some Iridescent Rhinestone jewels.
Lastly, the card needed a matching envelope to fit the lovely big bow so I trimmed Basic White to 11 1/2" x 7", scored down each short side at 1/2", and 5 3/4" on the long side. Folding in and attach the 1/2" scorelines to make the envelope, I finished off using a circle punch for the opening.
