More Fresh Cut Florals (2 cards)

Cardstock:  WPlus9 Design Studio (White)
Stamps:  WPlus9 Design Studio (Fresh Cut Florals, Very Vintage Florals)
Ink:  Stampin' Up! (Pink Pirouette, Regal Rose, Tangerine Tango, So Saffron, Certainly Celery), Memento (Tuxedo Black)
Tools:  Papertrey Ink (Linen & Canvas impression plate), corner rounder

Today was (finally) my daughter's last day of school.  She asked if I could make a set of cards as a gift for her teacher, and when she spotted a card I made previously with WPlus9's Fresh Cut Florals, she wanted me to use it for this set.

The hardest part of designing this set was deciding on the colors.  I finally settled on making three each of the two designs you see here:  a birthday version using warm pinks, oranges, and yellows, and a thank you version with aqua, purple, and yellow.  I added some glitter to the flower centers and used the linen & canvas impression plate from PTI to give the panel some subtle texture.

I have several projects keeping me busy at the moment, but I hope to be back soon!  Thanks for stopping by.

Both color groups are beautiful! I love the amount of white space in between the flowers and in the overall design of the cards.

How to pick? How can the same card look so different just by switching up the color? Gorgeous. I'm going to go with the first - it looks so summery. I'll have to come back in the fall when I am sure I will love the second one more!

It's easy to see why your daughter chose the FCF set. Your creations with it are fantastic. Both are bright and happy, and I'm sure your daughter's teacher will be delighted with the set. These are wonderful. Bev
