Fresh Notes

I hope you've all had a chance to order the Fresh Cuts stamp set with the Fresh Notes from Stampin' Up! This is one of the most beautiful sets I've seen, and I know I'm going to get a lot of use out of it! And I love these note cards, with the laser-cut flower that you punch out. The 5-Petal punch fits perfectly behind it! I made this card for a wedding shower for a girl at my church. I chose to use Groovy Guava since it matched the floral gift wrap I used! I just sponged ink all over the outside of the card and stamped the sentiment in the bottom right corner. I put a little orange flower (not sure who made it - just from an assortment of little paper flowers I bought at Michael's) in the center of the card flower with a So Saffron brad.

On the inside of the card, I stamped the big floral stamp on vellum and attached it with some copper eyelets. Then I sponged ink on the inside front of the card as well. I actually like the inside better than the outside of this card! The only problem was deciding where to write! I think next time I play with these note cards, I'll attach something over the front inside cover so that the inside back is left blank for writing on.
Thanks for reading!

Blessings to you,

Beautiful use of this set Shannon! Can you believe I have had it for a month and have not even mounted it yet - I know, shame on me! You have inspired me though - LOL! *STAMPIN HUGS* Alex

I just got this set but haven't cracked the rubber yet. Figured I'd use it for my last stamp club of the year.
