Here are two other cards that I was making as a sample thank you cards. I needed to use the colors black and so saffron. I used my Baroque Motifs and Sincere Salutations stamp sets on both of these cards.

On my first card I just stamped the swirly image in the lower left hand corner using black ink and then I added some saffron flowers in-between.

I stamped my sentiment in the upper right hand corner. This particular card is more like a note card. I was trying to design something simple and less bulky in order to keep postage down.

On my second card I again stamped the large swirly stamp in the lower left hand corner. Then I stamped a few so saffron flowers and my sentiment in the upper right hand corner.

This time I embossed my background using the cuttlebug folder Floral Fantasy. I decided to add two small ribbon tabs on the left side.

This card is similar to my first card, but this one has a few more layers and an embossed background. Both cards have a similar layout, which I love and I find myself using it quite often.

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day!

I really like the second one especially with the yellow and the ribbon tabs. Very nice.

Thanks for all your comments on my blog. I haven't been looking at blogs much recently, but after your comments I decided to make some time for it today! The comments were very encouraging and appreciated!
