Floral Birthday Notecard set & Bag

Hey there!  Thanks for dropping in today!  To me there is nothing better than using my love for papercrafting to bless my friends and family with cards and gifts.  We celebrated my sister's birthday yesterday and I was so excited to give her the gift that I made...a notecard set!  I love making these because they are really inexpensive and they mean a lot to the recipient.   

I started with white cardstock and cut them all down to a standard size card.  I stamped them with flowers in multiple colors and various sentiments.

I stamped my flowers in the lighter shade and then rolled the edges around into a darker color, stamped.  Very easy and they didn't take that long to do.

Added some green rhinestones to the middle of the flowers to give it a little dimension.

Now, you can't have a fun notecard set in a plain ol' bag!  So, I stamped the same design onto my white gift bag and added some coordinating colored twill tape and twine to the handle. 

She loved it, and that makes me happy indeed!  I hope you have a fabulous day my friend! 


Supplies used:
Paper: White Papertrey Ink
Stamps Beautiful Blooms II Papertrey Ink
Ink: Pure Poppy, Hawaiian Shores, True Black, Ripe Avocado, Summer Sunrise Papertrey Ink Yellow Cadmium ColorBox
