Here are all three cards together.
The first card is my version of the card on page 49 in the SU! catalogue. I LOVE how the tone on tone stamped flourish looks! The card in the catalogue has a strip of Peekaboo Peach ribbon underneath the sentiment banner. As I don't have the ribbon I used a distressed strip of Peekaboo Peach CS instead. I cut the strip of CS, spritzed it with water, crumpled it up a fair few times and then dried it with my heat tool. I really like the texture this gives! Instead of a button embellishment on the banner I added a die cut flower. I sprinkled on a few rhinestone jewels to finish.
Here's the second card. I made a landscape oriented card again, also included the tone on tone stamped flourish and a flagged sentiment banner. I stamped the flower twice using Peekaboo Peach ink without re-inking and stamped the leaves in Pool Party ink. I fussy cut the flowers, die cut the leaves and arranged them on the card, popping up the flower shapes. I used two dies from the 'Flourish' set to embellish and added rhinestone jewels.
Here's how I decorated the insides and the envelopes of the two landscape oriented cards.
For the third card I chose to make a portrait oriented card using mostly the same elements as for card two but changing the placement of the elements. This time I used full strength Peekaboo Peach ink for both flower shapes, I didn't flag the end of the sentiment strip and I placed a White Perfect Accent circle in the centre of the flower. It's fun to change things up just a little!
Here's how I decorated the inside and the envelope for card three, the portrait oriented card.
I had such a happy time in my craft room making these cards! Actually, I've had lots of very happy time in my craft room this past week as I was on holiday from work and I took advantage of the spare time and energy that I had! I've returned to work today though so it's back to normal and back to snatching some crafty time as and when I can!
