Floral Frenzy

When gathering gifts for Christmas, I quicky realized there were a couple gifts that needed a bit more...they were lacking. :(

My mom has always liked my creations but she's never owned any of my creations, therefore I set out to make her a set of note cards with different sentiments that she could use throughout the year. Since I was making these cards December 23, I needed to keep them clean & simple. I was inspired by Kim' card (HERE); very simple, but oh so cute!

I used Papertreyink's Floral Frenzy stamp set and set to work keeping everything one layer and very simple.

I used a couple styles of the Berry Sorbet ribbon and then another ribbon spool I had picked up at Michael's quite some time ago - but the colors matched perfectly. For the center of the flowers, I stamped the circle in 2nd generation ink (stamped off once) and then covered with Crystal Effects for some 3D dimension and shiny, fun detail.

In the last picture, you can see the 6 cards I made with various sentiments. Amazing how pretty clean & simple can be!!

Thanks for stopping by; the new year is just around the corner...anyone making any New Year's Resolutions? If so, leave me a note and tell me about them...or why you have chosen NOT to make any! :D

Hugs, ~M.

I bet she loved them! What a great idea to give her cards she can use through out the year! Isn't it so much fun when you come up with a simple design and they rock? Hope you had a Merry CHRISTmas!
