Thank you cards for Kaley

I was recently contacted via my eBay store by this lovely lady Kaley who wanted me to make her some thank you cards to give to her son's kindergarten teachers. I used the Just Add Cake Designer Paper Series (DSP) & Whisper White cardstock for all of the following cards. I suggested a flower with her son's face in the middle & this is what we came up with:

Version 1 - Tangelo Twist

I used the Beautiful Bunch stamp in Lost Lagoon ink & matching Fun Flower punch to make the flowers & doubled them up, orange on top of red with a 1 inch Scallop Punch in yellow on top. I also used the little flower stamp from the Pictogram Punches stamp set in Watermelon Wonder ink. The thank you stamp is from the Another Thank You stamp set & again, I used the Lost Lagoon ink.

Inside the card, I used another one of the flowers from the Beautiful Bunch in Tangelo Twist and the thank you stamp is from the Big News stamp set in Lost Lagoon. I also used the Lost Lagoon ink to stamp the flower on the corner of the envelopes. Kaley requested more blue & yellow, less orange & for the card to be blank inside.

Version 2 - Pacific Point

In this version I swapped out the orange background for blue & swapped out the orange flower for yellow. I then put the red flower on top of the yellow so that the yellow center would stand out more. And I took off the little flower stamps near the thank you stamp. Kaley requested a comic sans type font for the thank you stamp & for it to be placed under the flower. She also requested two butterflies above the flower.

Final Version

Here's the final version, although I have not included Kaley's son's face as I didn't want to post someone else's baby photos all over the internet. I used a 7/8 inch Scallop punch for Kaley's son's face so just a little yellow from the center would show around it. The thank you stamp has come from the Big News stamp set in Lost Lagoon ink and the butterflies come from the Best Thoughts stamp set in Hello Honey ink. I've left the butterflies flat against the card & slightly bent up the edges of the flowers for a 3D effect. I also put a small blue border around the thank you stamp to make it stand out a bit better.

I wish I could show you the version with her son's pic on it, he is as cute as a button!!

Versions 1 & 2 are available in my eBay shop.
