Beautiful Flowers 2 Congratulations

I needed a wedding card and decided to use the very large flower arrangement in Simon Says Stamp’s Beautiful Flower 2. Because of it’s size I decided to use a #10 envelope and sized the cardbase to fit. I added a strip of gold and white foiled paper to the bottom and love the way it turned out.

I like the previous card so much that I decided to to use the stamp set again. This time I stamped it in the corners with Simon Says Stamp Fog Ink and colored it with Copic Markers.

Beautiful Flower Hello

I was in need of a hello card to send to a new member of our ward at church and saw this leftover flowers from another project I had created and decided to put it to good use. I pulled out some patterned paper from My Mind’s Eye Heritage, cut it on the diagonal, and added the pretty flower at the intersection, which a die cut hello added in gold. Turned out pretty and required very little effort.

Love Always Happy Birthday Redo

Back in February I got the Simon Says Stamp Love Always Card Kit of the Month and created several cards. This one I did not publish because I hated the way it turned out. I used Gold Wink of Stella and it took away all the details of the stamp and muted the colors. When I was in need of a birthday card recently I saw this card again and decided to redo. I colored the flowers again with red Copic Markers and glued them right on top of the old. Now it’s a card I want to send to someone, rather than let it gather dust in my card box.
