This thank you card is so pretty! The Honeybee Home bundle from Stampin' Up! contains realistic flower and bee stamps for gorgeous cards. I like the sentiment "You're the nicest" rather than a more obvious thank you card. I can think of so many small, nice things that people do that are sometimes taken for granted. Sending them them this card would return the favour and send a smile their way.
I entered this card in Kylie Bertucci's International Highlights blog hop contest. Scroll down or click on the link to vote and see all the other great cards entered this month. I created THIS card with the coordinating 12 x12 Heart and Home designer series paper for last month's contest. The paper is so pretty and coordinates with both the Honeybee Home bundle and the Blessings of Home bundle from Stampin' Up! The Honeybee blooms dies even cut out the bees from the paper! How awesome is that?
Colour Combination Used:
This soft colour pallet makes a pretty card with little effort. I love using the coordinating Petal Pink ribbon and Basic White ribbon to draw attention to the sentiment. I would love to see what cards you have made with this colour combination!
The top 10 winners in Kylie Bertucci's International Highlights blog hop contest will share a blog hop later this month. I would greatly appreciate you voting for me! Thank you in advance! This week I will be featuring 3 additional cards using the same technique of popping up a layer with the main image below. Check back to see them soon.
Create it Yourself!
The Honeybee Home bundle is from the new Stampin' Up! January - June mini catalogue that begins January 4th.
To make this thank you card, start by stamping the Soft Sea Foam layer with the bees and a floral design. I used Soft Sea foam ink but you could also use a Versamark ink pad. This creates a subtle, pretty background. I then stamped the flower in Sahara Sand for no line colouring. I used Petal Pink Stampin' blends along with Soft Succulent Stampin' Blends markers to colour it. This image is well suited to beginners as there is minimal colouring.
Cut out the same flower outline using the Honeybee Blooms dies. To make sure this lines up properly, I put adhesive on the back of the coloured image, line it up under the Soft Seafoam layer and then press down onto the card base. I then use Stampin' Dimensionals to pop up the Soft Sea Foam layer. Add some ribbon and the saying and voila! The card is easier to create than it appears.

Enjoy creating this card yourself and feel free to use different colours. What colours do you like paired with Soft Sea Foam? If is a colour you use often or does it get forgotten about? Let me know in the comments.
