Breathtaking Bouquet ~ Thank You Card

Happy Saturday to you all, and thanks for popping by my blog today!
Today I wanted to come and share with you a really fun card that I made combining some fun Mini Catalogue product (that beautiful Breathtaking Bouquet stamp) with some existing Annual Catalogue product (the A Big Thank You bundle).

I really wanted a thank you card that packed a punch and had a lot of WOW! factor.
I have actually chosen to combine quite a few product ranges on this card, even pulling in the Coastal Weave Embossing Folder from the Tropical Oasis Suite.
I just love that beautiful embossing folder and all the texture that it adds.

I hope you enjoy today's card, and remember to scroll below to see all the products I have used which are all available in my store to purchase.

Here's the finished card where you can see all the texture and dimension and fun colouring on the Breathtaking Bouquet piece where I have used multiple Stampin' Blends; Blackberry Bliss, Lovely Lipstick, Mango Melody, Highland Heather and Granny Apple Green. 

To create this card I followed these steps:
  • Cut a card base from Coastal Cabana to your standard card base.
  • Cut a layer of Basic Black to 10cm x 14.4cm. Cut another layer of Coastal Cabana to 9.5cm x 13.9cm. Emboss the layer of Coastal Cabana with the Coastal Weave Embossing Folder, and then before adhering to Basic Black layer, run a sponge with some Coastal Cabana ink over the top lightly on the raised side to pick up some texture. Adhere these two pieces together with liquid glue. Once adhered, add some Stampin' Dimensionals to the back of the Basic Black and adhere to Coastal Cabana card base.
  • Stamp the Breathtaking Bouquet stamp of a scrap of Whisper White cardstock with Memento Black Ink. Colour the flowers as shown with a mixture of Blackberry Bliss, Highland Heather, Lovely Lipstick, Mango Melody and Granny Apple Green Stampin' Blends as shown. I have not coloured all flowers in the stamp, only the ones pictures. Once coloured, fussy cut around the flowers that you have coloured. Adhere to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals. If you wish you can add some Clear Wink of Stella to the coloured piece for some sparkle and shine.
  • Cut the 'thank you' die from the 'A Big Thank You' bundle with Whisper White cardstock four times. Adhere these all together with liquid glue to create a dimensional look (see close up picture for detail). Adhere this to your card with liquid glue.
  • Take one of the white Best Dressed Tassels and the dark Pretty Peacock Stampin' Blend. Using the brush tip end, colour only half of the tassel. I found that you need to turn tassel over and cover both sides for even coverage. Tie a bow to the tassel ring with the Whisper White Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon. Adhere this to your card as shown with Glue Dots (you may need to use three or four to ensure it is well secured).
  • To finish the card off add some Champagne Basic Rhinestone jewels over the card in several places. I find that I like to use an uneven number.
  • Add some Wink of Stella 'spritzing' over your card if you wish.

Here's a close up look at the finished card where you can see all the detail.
I have brushed some Coastal Cabana ink on a sponge over the embossed Coastal Cabana piece of cardstock to give it some extra texture and grunge - its very subtle, but that is the look that I was wanting.

You can see in this close up picture, the dimension and WOW that you get from die cutting the 'thank you' die several times from cardstock and adhering together, it really does give it so much dimension!

I added some Champagne Rhinestones for some sparkle and even coloured one of the white Best Dressed Tassels with a Pretty Peacock Stampin' Blend for some extra fun!

I have tied some Whisper White Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon onto the tassel before adhering to the card with some Glue Dots. 

Here's a look at the decorated inside that I created for my card, because I just couldn't have a naked card. I have added some stamped flowers from the 'A Big Thank You' Stamp Set in Coastal Cabana and added a sentiment from the same set, stamped in Memento Black onto some Whisper White cardstock and matted with Basic Black.
