'Thinking of You' - Set of 8 Cards

Three cups shaped like almond FLOWERS with buds
and blossoms are to be on one branch, three on the next branch,
 and the same for all six branches extending from the lampstand.
Exodus 25:33

Welcome to our 2013 Die Cut Tuesday New Release and Link Up over at www.MyPaperCrafting.com !  Be sure and pop over there and see what Melin and our other Designers have set up for this Showcase – and the FREE New Release for today.

For today’s project I made a set of 8 cards to give as a gift.  I’d picked up the pretty pink and sage green ‘Thinking of You’ cards with pink envelopes on Clearance at Michaels Craft Store several months ago.  I decided to ‘perk them up’ and add a Cut File to make them a bit more ‘personalized.’  I knew I wanted to use the ‘Tulip Medallion Flourished cf,’ as thought it would add just the right Elegant Touch!  Tulips are special to me because of my Dutch heritage and because I miss the multitudes that grew in my yard in spring back in Michigan.

Here are the cards –

I cut the motifs from white cardstock and then stamped them with pink ink and my ‘lace’ stamp.   I adhered them to the front of the cards and then added tiny pearls and light green gems.

This is the file I used –

  1. Lynden, I am sure who ever you are giving this thinking of you gift set to will really enjoy having them! Such a wonderful gift to give someone! :)

  2. What a beautiful set of cards! I love the delicate, soft colors. I too miss the Tulips in the spring. Having been born and raised in HOLLAND, Michigan...the Tulip Time Festival was a big part of my childhood. I love how you jazzed up this stationary set. Beautiful job as always!

  3. What a wonderful way to make a premade card set special. The cut file was the perfect addition. And the pink and sage? - yummy. This set will make a lovely gift.

  4. Lynden these set of cards are gorgeous! I love how elegant they are and the soft colors truly make me think of spring. Its kind of sweet that you talk about tulips as tulips are my favorite flower. I just adore them. Definitely love these!
    Would love it if you would stop by my blog sometime and join in our new Funday Friday challenges. Check it out!
