Floral Thank You card :)

Yet another post and of course a last one before my India trip on 24th June :)



In my last India trip, carried few craft supplies and it was lying almost 1 month unused. Atlast now find some time to use those.

Stenciling is done with TH honeycomb stencil using Texture paste and by masking a central portion of the card using a scallopped oval diecut, misted the card with Heidi Swapp Georgia peach shimmer mist.


MFT fluorishes are added and Flowers are made from CLD Gardenia strips by misting, distressing with various distress inks - Tumbled glass, Fired brick, Dusty concord and those CLD ivy fluorish leaves are distressed at edges by Crushed olive distress ink.



And a butterfly is stamped on White CS, colored using distress inks - Mustard seed and Wild honey and fussy cut and added near floral spray.




Used Gauze on adhesive side of masking tape and  sponged it with Distress ink Victorian velvet. A sentiment is stamped, then diecut it using Spellbinder Ribbon Banner die and added to the card. Misted stenciled cs are used as banners at right top of cards and few pearls are added as final touch.

Hope you like the card!!
