Thank You Notecards

I've been busy with a few projects for my 
son's upcoming wedding in October. 
My future daughter-in-law asked for a set of cards 
for wedding gift thank-you notes. 
Here's the final set, packaged up and ready to use.

I made a total of 60 (3 1/2" x 4 7/8") 
A1 cards using a variety of stamps.

The wedding colours are blue and rust , so this was
my inspiration. A floral image from Vintage Vogue (Stampin'Up) 
 was stamped with Moonstruck Blue (Close To My Heart)
stamped again with VersaMark and 
then heat embossed with Clear Embossing powder. 
The floral center was stamped with Canyon Clay ink.

The green lines were added with Simply Chartreuse ink 
using an image from Button Boutique
The sentiment (Star Prints) was stamped with blue ink 
and VersaMark and heat embossed as well. 
It is a simple and clean look that was important 
since I was making so many cards.

A small blue box from the Dollar Store was a perfect fit for 
two stacks of cards and matching envelopes. 
I'm going to add a pen and some stamps, so the busy couple 
will have everything they need to write their Thank you notes.

I added a tag using Tag Sale #11, cut from 
Canyon Clay and white card stock. The floral image 
and sentiment was added to the white panel. 
The small circle was created by stamping '60'  
(Mini Scrapbooking:Tabs) and 'cards' 
(Moments Inked: Planner Banners)
I punched this out using a circle punch, 
then inked the edge before adhering it to the tag.

Thanks for visiting today.

This set couldn't be more perfect! Even the dollar store box is perfect! I'm in awe that you heat embossed all of those cards, that is so much time!
