Gift Set Cards (#4, 5, and 6)

Card #4 of my gift set was intended to be a masculine Thank You card. I used Sage Shadow for the base card. I stamped the image from "Lovely as a Tree" with Sage Shadow on Whisper White. I used markers (Sage Shadow, Mellow Moss, Certainly Celery, Creamy Caramel, and Close to Cocoa) to color the tree. I sponged the main image panel and adhered it to a Sage piece which I distressed, then that was adhered to another white piece and adhered to the card. I used a Cuttlebug "Thank You" Mini embossing folder to emboss the sentiment. I finished it off by paper piercing and then adding a white piece to the inside of the card.

Card #5 is another Thank You card. This one is done in Bashful Blue and Whisper White. I stamped the image from "Fun & Fast Notes" with Stazon Black and then colored it with markers (Bashful Blue, Pretty in Pink, Certainly Celery). I added a Rhinestone Brad in the center of the flower. The main image panel was matted on Bashful Blue and then a Whisper White piece that was punched with the Square Step Corner Punch (retired). I used another Cuttlebug Mini embossing folder to emboss the sentiment, and I add the Bashful Blue ribbon. I lined the inside with white.
Card #6 is yet another Thank You card. The Whisper White base card is embossed with a Cuttlebug Mini embossing folder. The flower and leaves from "Wild Rose" are stamped on Whisper White with Purely Pomegranate and Wild Wasabi. The flower is a "2-Step Stamping" one. I inked the first stamp and stamped off once before stamping the first step. The second step was inked and stamped over the first step with the same color. I cut out the flower and leaves and adhered them to the card. I added the 15/16" Pomegranate ribbon and bow which I think is the best part of the whole thing! I finished of by lining the inside of the card with more Whisper White to hide the ribbon ends and reinforce the card.

These are all nice...I think my favorite is the bashful blue one in the center. Great job!
