Early Thank You

We recieved our first decline for the wedding at the weekend.

It was expected as my cousin is moving to Uganda for a year to teach out there and as she is only leaving a month before the wedding, we understood that she wouldn't be able to make it.

She sent us a lovely note and a beautiful bowl as an early wedding present.

As I knew she was leaving shortly, I wanted to send her a thank you note before she left rather than wait until after the wedding.

Using the Flower Shop Stamp Set that I used for Eva's thank you cards, I created a quick thank you card which tied into our wedding theme.

I layered up three pieces of cream card stock on top of each other and then stamped a selection of random flowers in versamark ink and then embossed with silver embossing powder. I then lined the sheets up again filled in some of the gaps with Night of Navy ink.

You can really see the impact of the embossed silver here.

The stamped sheets were then layered up on backings of navy card stock and I finished off with a punched image of a contrasting silver flower on navy card.

A little stamping inside was also added to continue the look

I'm really happy with the end result of this card and hopefully my cousin will like it too!
