Thank You Card Set

 
Here's my last minute entry for the card sets challenge at Hero Arts. I went for Thank You cards because that's something I think very many of us need now after the holidays. (Unfortunately there's a storm here today so light is terrible - I hope you'll come back and visit my blog tomorrow when I promise better pictures.)

Cardsets shouldn't take too much time to complete and the stamp and emboss combos just makes beautiful cardmaking so EASY. I used the beautiful Floral Wreath # 657768  for my cards and I simply stamped my cardstock, colored the flowers,cut it out and sent it through my Cuttlebug in the embossing folder and then  attached it to my cardbase.
And voilá - you have wonderful cards! + This floral wreath "background" makes it perfect for adding any cute image to the middle - this time I chose to paperpiece the super cute fox E5465 and gave him a little flower to hold in his mouth, and attached him to the card with foam pads.





I will also enter these cards for the "Anything Goes" challenges at Simon says stamp challenge, Stampi'n for the week-end and the craft room.

Have a wonderful day, hugs Karin
