Floral Inspiration

I saw these cards and thought I would try to make some of my own using those as inspiration:



These are a bit elaborate for me, I usually like things a bit simpler, but I had a ball making them.  I made two of each color and am planning on making a gift box for them too!

I used some gold DMC embroidery floss and some mini brads on these cards too and on the blue one I used a retired stamp called Off the Grid and embossed it with gold.  I thought that came out a bit too busy though so I didn't use it on the others.

Here are some of the products I used to create these cards

Thanks for visiting!

Each of these monochromatic card are so lovely on their own, and more so as a beautiful set! I especially love the gold loopy threads. Thanks for joining us this week at The Paper Players, Christine!
