I still can't believe how pretty these are and how little time they took to make! I needed to make a bunch of classy thank you cards in a hurry, so I grabbed the retiring Floral Phrases (get it before it's gone!) because of the pretty flowers and perfect sentiments.
I was just inspired by a gorgeous blue and white china plate on Pinterest, so I knew I wanted to use Blueberry Bushel and Whisper White. And that's the END of the supply list! I didn't even use any embellishments. Wow!
I've added close-ups of each card in case you want to copy--and so you can see the really color color gradient built right into the flowers. See how some of the petals and leaves are light and others are dark? That's all done with one specially designed stamp!
This next one's my favorite...
This last one's not technically a one-layer, but it's so simple I'm including it anyway. I made my own background paper, basically. I'll probably use my Stamparatus for this next time--I was eye-balling it and it could definitely be straighter.
Just for fun I added up the grand total of what 40 of these cards would cost you!
- Whisper White 8-1/2" X 11" Thick Cardstock  $7.75
- Blueberry Bushel Classic Stampin' Pad  $7.50
- Floral Phrases Clear-Mount Stamp Set  $18.00 (retiring and while supplies last)
- Grand total: $33.25= less than .85 each!
- Handmade + heartfelt= priceless!
