Just Add Ink have a new challenge this week,where they are asking for a creation that uses patterned pieces of papers.  It has been a few weeks since I last did a challenge and for th3e Just Add Ink Challenge I decided to make a Thank You card.  I am very thankful for everyone that has been asking me how I am, since I have been so quiet with my blog these past few weeks.  I would particularly like to dedicate this card to Christine Blain as she gave me a bit of motivation this morning with an email she sent me.   I started with a piece of A4 Rich Razzleberry cardstock which I folded in half horizontally.  I then scored 5 lines, only going half the width of the card . I then cut from the top score line to the bottom score line and folded the card to make the base for my side step card.  I then trimmed some Kraft cardstock  to make 4 panels for the base side step card.  Using some Cottage Wall DSP I trimmed 4 matching panels that were slightly smaller than the ones I had cut from the Kraft cardstock.  I adhered the Kraft and Cottage Wall DSP panels to the base card.  I then used some of the stamps from the Vintage Vogue stamp set using Rich Razzleberry Ink.  I also stamped the Thanks So Much from Sincere Salutations stamp set.  Using some scrap pieces of Cottage Wall DSP, I punched out a Scallop Oval,  4 flowers using the Boho Flowers Punch and a Butterfly using the Butterfly Punch.  Then using some scrap Green Galore cardstock, I punched out  a Butterfly and a Scallop Oval.  I finished off by punching 4 flowers from the Kraft cardstock.  I joined the flowers together using either white or green brads and for the butterflies I used a rhinestone brad.  I adhered the flowers, butterflies and punched out cardstock and stamped images to finish off my card.  Here is my Big Thank You to everyone who regularly visits my site and who have asked me when I was going to make my next card :).
