Hey everybody! A big Happy Monday to you all! Are you a fan of bright bold colors?! I sure am… the brighter, the better! Leslie here, sharing a pretty thank you card featuring a tone-on-tone background with die cut peonies! The Basis line is one of my favorites, and I used Basis Red, Basis Gold, Basis Teal and Basis Dark Purple for the peonies. Basis Natural 110# cardstock made a great card base, and the die cut background was cut from Neenah Classic Crest Baronial Ivory.
Cut Card Base and Elements
I cut a standard A2 top-folding card base from Basis Natural 110# cardstock along with a die cut background for the front and an inside layering panel from Neenah Classic Crest Baronial Ivory. I die cut peonies from Basis Red, Basis Gold, Basis Teal and Basis Dark Purple. Next, I cut embellishing strips for the inside from dark purple and teal.
I adhered the peony die cuts to the die cut background, trimming the edges as needed. I adhered the dark purple and teal embellishing strips as well as a leftover piece of a die cut peony to the inside ivory panel and layered it on the teal panel.
I added a fussy-cut stamped sentiment to the card front, and stamped a sentiment on the inside panel.
The front and inside panels were adhered to the card base. I added several gemstones colored with an ivory alcohol marker, which completed the card.
