You Make Me Smile

Here's my card for the current Viva la Verve sketch.  I needed a thank you card, so I used the sketch to put together a fresh, floral card.

You Make Me Smile card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps from Verve StampsI built the design around a yellow gingham patterned paper panel.  The panel was topped with a pair of yellow poppies stamped with Verve's Poppy Birthday stamp set.  They were adhered to the panel using foam tape for dimension. 

I adhered the patterned paper on an angle to a white cardstock panel.  I tucked a contrasting piece of green cardstock beneath the upper right side of the patterned paper, setting it off from the white just a bit.  The "you make me smile" sentiment from the Take Note set was stamped on a pale green panel in green pigment ink.  After adhering a pair of small yellow banner strips beneath the bottom edge of the sentiment, I layered it near the top of the patterned paper panel.  The finished panel was adhered to a lemon yellow card base to match the gingham pattern.

Materials Used:
Poppy Birthday and Take Note stamp sets, Build a Poppy dies (Verve Stamps); Mimosa and Celery inks (Avery Elle); Memento Luxe Tuxedo Black ink (IMAGINE Crafts/Tsukineko); Lemon Tart, Simply Chartreuse, and Spring Moss cardstock (Papertrey Ink); Yippee 6x6 paper pad (Chickaniddy Crafts); Fishtail Flag Stax dies (My Favorite Things); foam tape
