These are the first of several thank you cards I made for my friend. I found the three images in my stash and went about finding some coordinating cardstock. I stamped each card front in a coordinating ink using a flourish background by Impression Obsession. I added colour printed greetings - either attached to the image as in the blue one on the right or layered with a label as the turquoise and green ones to the left of it. I love the softness of these monochromatic cards and feel that the image is appropriate,
I used a piece of polished stone cardstock I had in my stash and stamped it with a wildflower silhouette stamp (SU) using Concord Distress ink. I stamped it first in the center and then again to one side then the other. I used an eyelet border punch (SU) on the bottom edge and sponged all the edges using the same purple stamp pad. I added a length of yellow ribbon gluing the ends to the back using double sided tape and tied a short piece to it using a single knot which makes a simple looking bow. I adhered this layer to a yellow card front and added an oval colour printed layered punchie greeting over the ribbon.
