Retirement Thanks

I seem to have a little extra time on my hands since my retirement the beginning of May and what better way to fill in that time but to create some cards.  I did receive some thoughtful gifts from work and friends so here are the cards that I came up with as Thanks.

The first group of cards I created uses the Dahlia Stem die from Simon Says Stamp.  I created different backgrounds with either my blending brush or direct to paper.

My next set of thank you card used the Pretty Pink Posh  “Beautiful Butterflies” stamp and coordinating die set.  I stamped the butterflies with versamark, embossed on vellum and popped up over the colored butterflies.


And my last group of thank you cards I went back to Pretty Pink Posh and the Spring Frame Die, vellum strip and embossing powder to complete this simple but elegant card.

Card stock was all Gina K Designs and inks were a combination of Distress Oxide Inks and GKD.  Thanks for looking.
