Floral Thank You Card

Pin It I have been a scrapbooker for quite some time, but have recently developed a real affinity for card-making.  It just seems to embody all the things I love (supplies!) and the best thing about it is the instant gratification of having a completed card in a (relatively) short period of time!  =)

I created this card to enter in the  March Hero Arts "Fabulous Flowers" Contest  (also new to these contests -- we'll see how that goes!).  It has a flower I created by cutting different sized flowers with my Cricut (I cut four at 2.5", two at 2.25", four at 2", two at 1.75", four at 1.5", and two at 1.25") and then rolling the edges till the paper was really soft.  Then I stacked them, pierced a hole and secured with a brad.  I heat embossed the "Thank You Definition" background stamp on my patterned paper and assembled! Ta-da!!!  I was definitely nursing some sore fingers for a bit afterwards, but I thought it was worth it!  =)
