Floral Thank You Cards
by Laura Fulcher

Greetings friends.  I don't know about you, but this time of year I need a lot of thank you cards.  I have been freezing lately, so I really wanted to make some Spring-themed cards instead of cold, wintery cards.  My cards became thank you cards, but they could have just as easily become cards for other occasions. 

For my post today, I wanted to share a trio of cards I made using the new Cheery Flower Collage die.  It is a floral circle window die, and I used the exact same layout for each card.  I simply changed the color of the Distress Oxide inks I used for the backgrounds.  I started each background with scraps of smooth 80lb white cardstock and sponged three colors of ink on top before splattering each background with water to create a splotchy look.  To finish each of the cards, I added a stitched circle frame around the floral window.  I thought the stitches added a nice embellishment to the card.  As a finishing touch, I added a sentiment from the Sentimental Iris clear set.

I hope everyone is staying warm!
