Bold & Bright Floral Note Cards

By Cards, Planner Stationary & Accessories

Hi All,

Welcome back! If you’ve been joining me each day to get a peek at the newest styles of my note cards — hello! If you are a first-time reader, don’t forget to check previous posts (or the gallery) to get a peek at all the new cards that have been released this summer.

As many of you may have noticed, I have been cranking away at creating some elegant, classy, everyday use type of cards. I can honestly say I am having a hard time choosing a favorite. I am loving so many different sets.

These cards are a bit more of a tropical feel. The colors are bold and bright and incredibly pretty to look at in person. I stuck with the embossed card base and gold cord again (like other cards).

This color combination just gives me such happy feels — it’s so many of my favorite colors in one pattern!

Here’s a look at the interior of the card – since the card is embossed, there is a beautiful debossed pattern on the back.

Thanks so much for stopping by! I’ll see be back soon with another set to share with you!

Glad Tidings of Great Joy!

Hi All,

Who’s ready for winter?! Oh man, I am so pumped for winter and all the holiday festivities it brings. In anticipation for the upcoming holiday season I have started to create Christmas cards. I will likely have a new one to share each day leading up to the week before Christmas. If you are interested in any of the cards please leave a comment and let me know! I’d love to hear feedback on which styles, colors, and themes you like!

On to today’s card.

For this card, I wanted to try out some inking techniques and create a snowbank. I achieved this look with some masking and 2 tone color blending of inks. I loved the results of the technique. It looks like it is watercolor with several layers of color, but truly it is a white base with 2 blues.
