Stampin' Up UK, Flower Shop Thanks!

Stampin' Up UK, Flower Shop Resurrected with Thanks!

The Flower Shop stamp set was one of the first I ever bought from Stampin' Up and while I love it, it has been a bit neglected of late so I decided to use it for this years Christmas Thank you cards.

Trust me when you have a 17 month old daughter, you need a lot of thank you cards! She was one spoilt (loved my mum keeps telling me) little girl!

I really love this card - it was so simple to make but looks really effective and has a lot of dimension.
I layered a matt of basic black on to whisper white card stock and then added an extra mat of whisper white on top.
The flowers are So Saffron, a colour I've not used a lot before but I tried this in Daffodil Delight first and it was too bright.
The small black circle is punched from basic black card stock and is topped with a pearl - this really lifts the card I think.

It is all finished off with a simple sentiment in smoky slate.
What do you think? Hopefully it will be a well recieved as the present was.
I'll be show casing some more flower shop cards over the next few days and if you'd like to buy Stampin' Up products to make some similar cards of your own pop over to my on-line shop or get in touch, I'd be delighted to help.
New customers placing their first order with me in January get a fantastic 10% off - no catches, as simple as that! Orders need to be placed through me rather than on line so please, get in touch.
