Today, I'm sharing the thank you card I made for customers who ordered with me last month. I used the Very Vintage Host stamp set from the Annual Catalogue, which is an option that you can purchase with Stampin' Rewards when you place an order of $250 or more. The Host stamp sets are right at the back of the catalogue and are easy to overlook, so I'm showing you the images in this set in the pic below. I love the combination of greetings and lovely vintage images in this set. The label coordinates with the Darling Label punch from the Darling Label Punch Box.
The classic floral line image reminds me of the designs you see on toile fabric and on blue and white china. I love blue and white china and have many pieces around my house, so that is my inspiration. I've used Blueberry Bushel with Whisper White to create my monochrome cards.
I masked off a narrow panel on a piece of Whisper White card stock and then used the sponge brayer to add a light layer of Balmy Blue ink. A sponge dauber was used to add darker highlights with Blueberry Bushel ink. The large floral image was stamped over the top of the coloured panel with Blueberry Bushel ink and the bee was stamped in the corner. I added the narrow strip of Blueberry Bushel card stock across the base of the coloured panel and wrapped the lovely white/silver metallic edge ribbon around and finished in a bow. The thanks was cropped in Silver Foil using the die from the Well Written Framelits.
This closeup gives you a better view of the coloured panel and floral silhouette. I added some clear epoxy droplets to finish.
I have kept the inside simple, with part of the floral image stamped in each corner of the writing panel.
