Fine Floral Flourish
I finished A&V's wedding invitations, and after embossing all of those Marina Mist cards, I started looking at the main image from Wedding Sweet in a different way. It's a flower, and I really wanted to make it stand out as a flower for a thank you card to include with the invitations.
I started with a base of Very Vanilla, and inked up the flower with Wild Wasabi. Then I wiped off the ink from the flowers, and replaced it with Rich Razzleberry, using one of SU's markers. [Sidenote: I LOVE how everything coordinates!] Once I had the stamp all inked, I huffed on it to make sure all the ink was moist, then stamped onto the card base. Instead of using the thank you from Wedding Sweet, which looked a little small to me, I grabbed my trusty Thank You Kindly and chose "thanks" because its flourishes mirror the flower. I used Marina Mist, to match the original invitations, and I'm going to tuck this card in the package with the invitations. Who knows? Maybe I'll be making lots of these in the future.
