Happy Memorial Day to you! I hope you are able to spend the day relaxing with family and friends and can take some time to remember those who died while serving in our armed forces. I am full of gratitude for the ultimate price they paid for our freedom. I’m planning to watch the Memorial Day parade in my hometown of Chagrin Falls, Ohio, with my kiddos.
Speaking of gratitude, my card today is a one layer thank you note created with one of Stampin Up!’s new Hostess Sets, Background Bits!
This one-layer card came together in a jiffy with the help of this fabulous Hostess Set. Here’s a closer look at the set:
This set makes it easy to do collage stamping! For the flowers, I inked up the stamp set with Calypso Coral and Pear Pizzazz Stampin’ Write markers. Because the ink will start to dry while you are coloring the flowers, just huff on it with your breath a few times before stamping to bring the ink back to life.
I used Sahara Sand for the vertical medallion pattern and stamped off once to soften the color. For some added texture to this one-layer card, I flicked some Sahara Sand ink onto the notecard with a Stampin’ Write Marker.
Thanks for stopping by and Happy Memorial Day!
