Fisk-a-link Friday - Thank You Card

This week I am joining the Fisk-a-link Friday posts that are done by the Certified Fiskars Demonstrators. Each post shows a project, an idea or shares some tips related to the Fiskars products.

My Fisk-a-project for today is a quick Thank You card.

Tools used: Desktop rotary trimmer with scallop blade, medium heart squeeze punch, medium april showers squeeze punch, stamps

1. Gather your supplies and pick few scraps of green and pink cardstock and pink patterned paper. I pulled out my pink scrap drawer and picked 3 different scraps of pink patterned paper.

2. Cut 8.5"x11" sheet of white cardstock in half and than fold each piece in half. You have 2 plain cards. Cut 3"x4" piece from green cardstock and 2.5"x3.5" piece from the pink cardstock using the scallop blade.

3. Adhere the green piece to the center of the card, adhere the pink piece on top of the green piece.
4. Using April Showers punch out the flower petals from the pink patterned paper. You will need 12 petals per flower.
5. Put some adhesive in the flower center and adhere 6 petals as shown. Curl the petals with the fingers before adhering.

6. Add more adhesive in the middle and adhere the second layer of petals. This time the petals should touch each other in the middle. I rub them with the texturing stylus to make sure the petals are glued down. Use a glue dot to add a button in the center.

7. Punch out 2 hearts from the green paper. Score in the middle and fold.

8. Add 2 pop dots as shown

9. Add the hearts to the card forming the leaves. Stamp Thank You sentiment (from the Fiskars "Baby" stamp set)

10. All done!

Hope you liked it. :) I made a bunch for my daughter today to write her "thank you" notes after the birthday party.
