So Thankful for You Card

Hello Crafty Friends - Annie here with an easy thankful card perfect to send out for Thanksgiving or as a simple thank you card.

I used light fall colors for this card.

Let's get started!

I started by die cutting the flowers from yukon gold and pumpkin orange cardstock. 6 in total - 4 yukon gold and 2 pumpkin orange. I die cut the center of the flowers from metallic copper cardstock, the sentiment from the light yellow ochre cardstock. The leaves I die cut from leftover Rinea Foil Paper I used for another project - I used some Tim Holtz Alcohol inks on the foil paper. I trimmed my card front panel from Kraft cardstock (4-1/4" x5-1/2") and I also trimmed some striped pattern paper(4" x 5-1/4")

I adhered the pattern paper to the kraft cardstock panel. I then set it aside to work on the flowers.

I use a pad (you can use a mouse pad or thick craft foam) under my flower and a stylus and curl the flowers upward towards the center. I then put a bit of glue in the center of the flowers and stack them making sure that the petals are all alternating.  Finally, I adhered the center of the flowers.
 

Then, I adhered the leaves to the card panel. I placed them in the left bottom corner. Next, I adhered the flowers overlapping the leaves. Making sure to place the Medium flower toward the bottom for some weight. Then, I adhered the sentiment to the top of the card. 
(below you can see a close- up of the leaves. I used reds and some green on the leaves)
 

For some finishing touches, I added some Jewels to the center of the flowers and in the upper right corner. I also added a yellow Heart to the card panel. I adhered the card panel to a white card base.

Now the card is complete!
