Gratitude: Floral Thank You Cards

My mom is very lucky to have some incredible friends. Not surprising, because she’s a sweetheart, but with her recent illness, these friends have really been there for her. I can’t thank them enough for the love and care they’ve shown her (and me)  and I was only able to come home because I knew they’d be there for her.

Edamame Thank Yous

I used a floral print paper from DCWV’s Indian Summer Stack as the background paper for the card. Cut to 4.75 x 6.75 ( card is 5x7) and then layered on cream cardstock panel and another piece of the floral.

DCWV Thank You

The colors went perfectly with K and Co’s Edamame collection which I’ve used in a few other cards. I used self adhesive scrapbook borders and die cuts, and layered some of the die cuts with foam dots to give some depth.

DCWV Indian Summer Stack

Accented with self adhesive pearls and the sentiment is a Hero Arts stamp ( that’s deliberately off set…I didn’t stamp that crooked!). I stamped the sentiment on a cardstock scrap and layered with more scraps from my focal paper.

Hero Arts Thank You

These cards don’t begin to cover my gratitude for their friendship to her and to me. But hopefully they’re a start!

Beautiful cards and such a relief your mother has such great friends. I have some stamps like this and they always look wonky but rather like it that way. Annette x
