Thanks a Bunch with Barista BasicGrey


Hi everyone! Happy Wednesday! Today I have a card to share featuring BasicGrey’s adorable Barista collection.
AudreyPettit BG Barista ThanksABunchCardThank you cards are always in high demand at my house, and I’ve been working on building up my stash of ready-made cards to keep on hand. Barista is such a perfect collection for this because the neutral colors works so well for any occasion and for anybody on my card-giving list. This week, I’ve made two Barista thank you cards to share on the BasicGrey blog, in both a masculine and a feminine version. And today I would love to share the feminine design here with you.

AudreyPettit BG Barista ThanksABunchCard2This card mixes Barista papers and embellishments with pretty floral and script stamps from the Tea Garden collection. I layered several papers from the 6×6 Paper Pad for the background, and then added in a variety of banner strips for extra detail.

AudreyPettit BG Barista ThanksABunchCard3I pulled in lots of yellow to bring out the more feminine side of the collection, and added a few girly details like stitching, candy buttons, the elegant frame, and of course those pretty stamps. The flowers were water-colored with Distress Markers, then fussy cut and added to the frame opening using foam dots for dimension. A light brush of Wink of Stella clear glitter pen on the flower petals adds a final girly touch.

My second card, the masculine version, is up on the BasicGrey blog, if you’d like to see more. Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope you all have a wonderful day!

  1. Lots of beautiful colors and patterns using the BasicGrey line, Audrey, for your thank your card! The pretty flower within the frame is just perfect! And, great touch with the twine!:-)

  2. Look at all of those patterns you used on this amazing card! HOW do you do that and make it look fantastic? I try that and it looks too busy! You have that magic touch, I guess! LOL!

  3. Your color combination is so trendy right now. What a great selection of patterns and colors. Your watercolor looks are always so fresh and creative.

  4. Hi Audrey!
    Magnificent card with a very elegant palette of colors.
    Your sunflower is gorgeous and goes so well with the blue tones.
    Thank You~
