Hardwood & Secret Garden Thank You Cards

I made a set of thank yous so that each of my March customers got a card popped inside their bag of SU! goodies.  The cards are not exactly square,  they measure 1 1/4" x 1 1/8" so that I could get two cards from 1 sheet of A4 Crumb Cake CS.  I love, love, love the new Hardwood stamp, it's fabulous!  I stamped it onto Crumb Cake CS with Crumb Cake ink, cut the panels to size, stamped the sentiments, layered onto Early Espresso mats and glued those to the front of the cards.  I die cut Gumball Green leaves and stamped flowers in Daffodil Delight and Melon Mambo inks.  After die cutting the flowers I snipped between each petal and shaped the flowers to make them dimensional.  The Melon Mambo flowers are glued direct to the panel but the Daffodil Delight flowers are popped up.  I completed the card front with punched Itty Bitty flowers, a die cut embossed butterfly and some rhinestones.

Here's what I did on the insides and on the envelopes.

Here's all four of the cards lined up together - seeing a group of cards always makes me happy!
