Thank You Card Set

Hello, my friends! I hope you're having a beautiful start to the week. :o)

This will be my quickest post ever, which is fitting since these are certainly the simplest cards I've ever made. (Although crafted with the same amount of sappier-than-a-maple-tree love.) These are my final contributions for July's I Feel the Love Project recipients. Part of the collection was to send blank thank you cards for a beautiful mother (Yvette) to send to those who have made donations to help with her daughter's medical expenses.

My previous set for Yvette was also floral in theme, but vastly different. This time I played with my Copics, coloring up a lovely tulip digital stamp from Fred, She Said.
The differences between the two are color and embellishments. The blue and yellow card has rhinestone-centered flowers along the entire border, while the pink version has pearls.
The card base is a square frame cut file from Bird's Cards, one of her gorgeous designs that she offers for free. The floral patterned paper backgrounds are both "handmade" papers from Jo-Anns, although I forget the company. They are very pretty in person and inked with Victorian Velvet and Faded Jeans distress inks. The computer-generated sentiments are cut out with My Craft Spot's Tiny Tag metal dies.

The interiors are lined with the same papers as their fronts and topped with a Spellbinders Fleur de Lis square for Yvette to write in. I truly hope she enjoys everything that will soon be heading her way. It has been a joy to create for her and Mariyah this month!
Thank you for visiting! I wish you a sparkly day. :o)
