Freshly Made Floral Thank You

I’m not much of a floral person, but I’ve seen so many fabulous creations with the WPlus9 Fresh Cut Florals stamp set that I had to add it to my collection. I put it to use for this feminine thank you card made with the current sketch at Freshly Made Sketches.

I stamped one of the set’s flower images in two shades of pink inks on white flower die cuts. The center of each flower is dotted with a tiny bit of pink Liquid Pearls for a little dimension. They’re adhered to a pink tag, die cut with WPlus9’s Timeless Tags 2 die. I stamped the set’s “thank you” sentiment at the bottom of the tag, then added a piece of knotted fuchsia faux suede ribbon to the top of the tag.

The tag is set on a piece of green patterned paper edged with a dark pink mat. I embossed a pale pink panel with a dotted pattern and set the patterned strip on top. The embossing helps to set the same color pink tag off from the background a bit. The finished panel is adhered to a dark pink card base.  Not bad--florals just might be growing on me . . .

Materials Used: 
from i {heart} papers: WPlus9 Fresh Cut Florals stamp set and Fresh Cut Florals and Timeless Tags 2 dies, Tsukineko Memento Angel Pink, Rose Bud, and Pear Tart inks, Echo Park Here and Now 6x6 paper pad, Lifestyle Crafts Spotted embossing folder, May Arts fuchsia faux suede ribbon, Ranger Petal Pink Liquid Pearls, Sticky Thumb dimensional dots
