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.

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.

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.

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.

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

Friendship Card

I have a friend who’s been going through a rough patch and while a card isn’t going to fix everything, it’s my small way of hopefully brightening her day and letting her know I’m there for her.


I went to my stash and chose die cuts from K and Co’s “Edamame” collection as my focal. I also had the adhesive scrapbook borders from the same collection.

The damask print background paper is from Recollections. I layered it onto a 5x7 card cut from heavy white card stock, then dry embossed a smaller white panel using my Cuttlebug and a Tim Holtz “Fancy Florals” Texture Fade embossing folder:

The large floral die already had a bit of glitter on it so I layered smaller dies in the center, added a self adhesive rhinestone, and added more glitter using iridescent Stickles:

Used a couple more dies from the pack and a coordinating scrapbook border to finish up the card.
