ICS December Blog Hop Thank You

Welcome to the last ICS Blog Hop for 2022 as we showcase Thank You cards to help inspire you. It's hard to believe it is December already and Christmas is less than 2 weeks away. It's the perfect time to create Thank You cards to have on hand to send to the people you appreciate and let them know you care. Our wonderful Design Team will be sharing their projects and ideas to help spark your creativity and help you to create your own beautiful cards to share with others.
This time of year can get very hectic and stressful and one of my favorite ways to relax and unwind is to enjoy some Creative Therapy. Creating clean and simple cards is not only a rewarding experience but a great way to replenish your card stash. For today's Thank You card, I have chosen to use the beautiful Fitting Florets Designer Series Paper with the coordinating Framed Florets Bundle. You may recognize this layout as one I have used quite a few times over the past couple of months and I must admit, it has become a favorite of mine. This time, I decided to create a landscape orientated design to show another variation with these products. I heat embossed the sentiment and floral details with Silver embossing powder and colored the flowers and leaves with Stampin' Blends Markers to step up the design. This design would work well for a variety of occasions, for people of all ages.

This card is so simple to assemble and doesn't need a lot of supplies. The hardest part just might be choosing which design from the Fitting Florets Designer Series Paper to use for your background. There are so many great ones to choose from. To create the sentiment and frame, I die cut one of the medium detailed frames from Balmy Blue cardstock and one from Basic White cardstock. This way I have the outer frame in Balmy Blue and the matching center oval in Basic White for my sentiment. I heat embossed my sentiment and floral details with Silver embossing to add an elegant touch to the design. For a pop of color, I colored in the flower with the Light Polished Pink Stampin' Blends Marker and the leaves with the Light Soft Succulent Stampin' Blends Marker. The next step is to assemble the card by attaching the card front to the card base and then centering the frame and sentiment oval on the card front. The finishing touch is adding some Basic Rhinestone Jewels to the sentiment oval for a touch of bling. And there you have it! A simply beautiful card that is easy and stress-free to create. The Fitting Florets Designer Series Paper is only available while supplies last, so I would recommend ordering it soon to add to our collection. There are so many beautiful designs suitable for all seasons and both masculine and feminine designs.
