Grateful Heart Card

Hey, Crafty Friends!!
It's the 15th and time for another I Am Roses Challenge!!

Today, I made this beautiful THANK YOU card using gorgeous white and yellow flowers. And since summer is coming to an end, I thought I'd incorporate autumn colors into the mix.


Supplies Used
Cream Yellow Daisy (I Am Roses)
Large Roses (I Am Roses)
Big Shot (Sizzix)
Anna Griffin Flower Bramble Die (Cuttlebug)
Classy Copper (DCWV)
Mega Runner (Xyron)
Stitched Oval Dies (Pink & Main)
Thanks A Bunch Stamp Set (Diamond Press)
Versamark (Tsukineko/ Imagine)
110 lb Cardstock- Craft, White (Recollections)
Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Inks- Forest Moss, Peeled Paint, Spiced Marmalade (Ranger)
Life Changing Blender Brushes (Picket Fence Studios)
Quick Grip (Beacon)
Copper Embossing Powder (Clearsnap)
Misti Stamping Tool (My Sweet Petunia)

I knew I wanted to create a 5"x7" card. 
So, I started with by cutting my craft paper down to 7" x 10". Then folded it in half creating a 5"x10 card. 

I matted it with white cardstock measuring 4 3/4" x 6 3/4".

And topped it with a piece of orange plaid paper measuring. 4 1/2" x 6 1/2".



 I die cut leaves from this green paper with white speckles using a leaf David Tutera's Eucalyptus & Flourish die from Sizzix.

Using one of the small Picket Fence Studio's Life Changing Blender Brushes I inked on Peeled Paint & Forest Moss Distress Oxide Inks.

Then, folded each leaf on their pre-scored crease line to give them more dimension.


I ran a 5' x 7" piece of white cardstock through my  Creative Station Lite.

Then, die-cut it using the Anna Griffin Flower Bramble die. First, by running it through my Big Shot, to cut it. Then again, with my green rubber sheet, to emboss all that gorgeous detail work.

I swiped Spiced Marmalade over top using a small narrow Life Changing Blender Brush. And snipped off a segment of the die-cut.


I used my Xyron Mega Runner to assemble and adhere to my card front. Then peeled off the protective film on the die-cut and attached it to the front of my card. 

Then I attached my leaves and flowers using a quick-drying glue.


I laid my leaves down, then built up my flower swag from there.
I attached the tiny White with Pale Yellow 2-Tone Paper Flowers onto the leaves.

Then, added a Large RoseWhite Lily Paper Flower, & two
Cream Yellow Daisies. Making sure to curl each of their wired stems around a dowel rod first, before attaching it to the card (this gave it those cute little curls you sticking up).

I also die-cut and small oval using Pink & Main's Stitched Oval Dies. Then stamped the Sentiment "Grateful Heart" from Diamond Press' Thanks A Bunch Stamp Set with Versamark ink. Next, I  sprinkled Copper embossing powder over top and heat set it. Then, attached to the front of the card using foam adhesive.

And here is my finished card...
