I Know, I Know!!

I know, I know. If I just make one Thank You card and repeat the design the ones receiving them wouldn't know the difference. And I've done that before but not a big scale. And the "scale" this time is REALLY big!!! I think for me right now it's that part where you get bored making the same card over and over. Like I'm doing with our Christmas card. And when I get done with this post I will be back at working on them. The goal is to be done with them so I can get them out in the mail on the first of December. Wish me luck!!! LOL

There's SO much to do this time of year. I did get the tree up on Saturday and the house decorated (inside) so I'm done with that. I still have baking to do and those Christmas cards!!! I have not told you which one I chose for "the" card this year. I will post it when I'm done with them all.

On to the featured card. I made it using the "Baroque Motifs" set by Stampin' Up! It's difficult to see the details in the photo (I think you may see the details better if you click on the photo). I used the Linen background stamp and Soft Sky ink and card stock. Then I used the larger round flower in the set, I stamped off using Soft Sky ink and then I added the small flower using the same ink and stamping off. I then stamped with the large swirl stamp using Blue Bayou ink. I sponged the edges with Soft Sky. I attached it to a piece of Blue Bayou card stock. I added the thank you words from Sincere Salutations. I looked at the card and then I looked at it again and didn't like what I saw. SO I thought I'd add some corners to it. They were ok until I used the Mat Pack and the White Gel Pen. It looked out of place so I took the little flower stamp and add some white flowers using the white craft ink. They were so light you could hardly see them. SO I took the card over to the counter and added white embossing powder and heated it up. They tied the white faux stitching in and I liked it much better but it still wasn't enough. I then added the rhinestones to the center of the flowers and I was finally satisfied with it!!

Adding the Linen and then the flowers from the stamp set was like making my own decorative background paper. I hope you are able to view the detail.

Thank you SO much for stopping by,

I love the faint flower stamp in soft sky on the background. Look so nice with the white main image flowers. Very, very, pretty; thanks for sharing.
