I used the Stampin’ Up! Lots of Lavender stamp set from the upcoming Sale-a-bration Catalog and the Southern Serenade stamp set from the upcoming Occasions Catalog to create a quick thank you card to share with you today.
My card design was inspired by Freshly Made Sketches #318.
I did have a bit of a laugh with my friend Sandi MacIver who posted a very similar card yesterday for this same sketch challenge…neither of us knew that the other was make the card. 🙂 You can see her beautiful card on her blog post here.
I started by embossing a panel of Whisper White card stock with the Pinewood Planks embossing folder. I adhered a strip of 5/8″ Burlap Ribbon to the panel with Fast Fuse Adhesive, then adhered the embossed panel to a panel of Whisper White card stock with SNAIL. I adhered the layered panel to a Thick Whisper White card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I stamped the flower images from the Lots of Lavender photopolymer stamp set (Sale-a-bration item available Jan 3) in Smoky Slate, Wisteria Wonder (stamped on scrap paper once before stamping on the final panel), Pear Pizzazz and So Saffron inks on a panel of Whisper White card stock. Then I stamped the sentiment from the Southern Serenade (available Jan 3) stamp set in Basic Gray ink on the panel.
I adhered the stamped panel to a panel of Whisper White card stock with SNAIL and then to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a single gold enamel dot from the Metallic Enamel Shapes pack to finish the card front.
I stamped the outline image from the Lots of Lavender stamp set in Smoky Slate ink on a panel of Whisper White card stock inside the card.

Pretty card Amy! I love how the texture on the embossed layer is a bit subtle. It pairs perfectly with the texture of the burlap ribbon. And the sprig of flowers is so pretty! Thanks for playing along with us at Freshly Made Sketches!
