Bright Thank You Card With a Funky Flower

I'm making 8 card boxes for a custom order, and this is one of the cards that's going inside. I used a paper pad from K & Co from last year...I love the bright colors. But I'm so sad...I just used up the last of the paper! I need to find a replacement for when I need bright colors like this.

I've shown these lollipop flowers before. They're really fun and inexpensive to make.
  • Simply cut 3 circles in varying sizes from your paper scraps. No need for a circle cutter or punch...cutting them freehand gives it a more interesting look.
  • Ink the edges to make them pop, then stack on top of each other.
  • I like the patterns of the paper to alternate--busy pattern, not busy pattern, busy pattern--or vise versa.
  • Add some 3D foam between each layer for some added dimension. Be sure to choose a foam that's not too thick since you'll have so many layers.
The stamp is from the Thank You stamp set from Close to my Heart...one of my all-time favorites and definitely my most-used.

Happy creating!
