Today’s project was something I made for a gorgeous friend of mine to say “thank you”. I have lots of friends who don’t stamp or craft, but still very much appreciate what I do, so to say thank you for a gift she gave me, I made her a little gift too using the Happiest of Day stamp sets.
I love the simplicity of this card. I stamped the rose on shimmery white cardstock and then coloured with my stamp pads and an aqua painter. Once it was dry, I used my Wink of Stella pen to add some additional shimmer to the rose petals. I loved this design so much, I made 2 other versions of the card.
Apologies for the not so great photography; I took the photos at 5am in the morning on my rush out the door to work!
Again, the simple image stamped in Basic Black with a smidgen of watercoloring, makes these cards clean, crisp and simple, yet pretty.
To ensure my cards had the real “gift” feel, I used one of the new acetate card boxes from the Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalogue to package them up. Since my cards were “note card size” there is a little extra room in the box. It fits a standard size (14.5cm x 10.5cm card) and matching envelope.
