Floral Thank You Note Sets

Today I have more thank you notes to share with you. I wanted to play around with this lovely image from the SU! set Field Flowers. It is so beautiful and elegant! I've been challenging myself to pull out stamp sets that I haven't used in a while and give them some love.

The card base is made from Rustic Cream card stock (PTI), which has flecks of fiber in it. I love how that adds to the natural beauty of the cards.

For this first set, I stamped the two-tone flower in Barely Banana and Tangerine Tango ink. The stems are stamped in Always Artichoke.  I played around with lots of color combos to get the look I was going for. I have gotten rather spoiled by using clear stamps lately. In going back to rubber, my stamp-a-ma-jig was my best friend getting everything lined up!

The sentiment was stamped three times in Tangerine Tango without re-inking.  Stamping off isn't a technique I use very often, but I like how this sentiment turned out!

Inside, I stamped a flower bud in the same colors. I like to embellish the lower left corner of the inside of my cards, because you usually sign on the right. How do you embellish the inside of your cards?

Here is the same design in purple. This time the flowers were stamped in Lavender Lace and Vintage Violet.

And in pink! This one was done in Pretty in Pink and Rose Red ink.

There are four cards in each color set, all bundled together with raffia.  All three sets are available in my Etsy shop.

Thanks for reading and have a great weekend!

Oh my these are gorgeous!! The two-toned flowers are so pretty. I thought the first one was great and then there was another and then another. You have outdone yourself. I like how you did the sentiment by stamping off. Just lovely!
