Here's an fast, easy card you'll love creating for someone special.  It uses one of the Free Sale-A-Bration Selections with a $50 order -- the Dainty Flowers 12" X 12" Designer Series Paper and the Dainty Delight Stamp Set, from the January-April 2023 Mini Catalog.  I used one of the floral prints and one of the Starry Sky Patterns included in this paper pack.  This card is simply a Thick Whisper White base card, a layer of the Stary Sky patterned paper, and a strip of one of the florals printed on a paper background that looks like canvas.  I used the Something Fancy Dies and cut a Crumb Cake matte and a Basic White sentiment label.  I added a bow using the Silver-Threaded Twine, a carry over from the July-December 2022 Mini Catalog.  For a little bling, I added a couple of Stary Sky Adhesive Backed Milky Dots, and my card was finished.  During Sale-A-Bration you can select Free gifts from the Sale-A-Bration Brochure for each $50 or $100 you order, less tax and shipping. Many of the Sale-A-Bration items coordinate with items from the January-April 2023 Mini Catalog, extending the usefulness of your Free items. You'll love creating with these wonderful papers and stamps.

Then I selected a floral prints from the Dainty Flowers Designer Series Paper, and used a strip that fit my card front.   I love the hand-painted look and the background that looks like the florals were painted on canvas.    

Thank You Card featuring Dainty Flowers Designer Series Paper from Stampin' Up!

I selected two of the dies from the Something Fancy Dies set and created a matte of Crumb Cake Cardstock and a label of Basic White.  I stamped a sentiment from the Dainty Delight Stamp Set in Starry sky ink onto the label, and added two of the Starry Sky Adhesive-Backed Milky Dots to the label.  I created a rustic bow using Silver threaded twine, Item # 159662 | $8.00, which is a carry over from the Stampin' Up! July-December 2022 Mini catalog. It's not in any current catalogs, but it is available on the Stampin' Up! online store.
