Note Cards

Over the past couple of weeks I have been working on a set of notecards using Stampin' UP! Botanical Blooms Medley.  They just have general hello sentiments and blank inside so I can write appropriate messages. This one is with the sketch at CAS(E) This Sketch!
The background white was run through Big Shot with the new Old World Paper embossing folder. I love that touch of texture. The paper, tag, and die cut are from the medley kit. Hello is an old SU stamp. I put glossy accents on the plums for some shine.
Here is the sketch
And a photo of the other notecards with the Botanical Blooms

This Medley set was a really good deal. I have made a lot of cards with it. Unfortunately, it was not carried over to the new catalog.

Botanical Prints

I wasn't sure about the Botanical Prints Product Medley when I first opened it. Now I am finding it so versatile. A lot of the papers are in black and white which allows for customized coloring. Also in the kit is the die cut pattern paper that is featured on the right. I cut off a 1 1/4 strip on the front of the card and glued the trimmed die cut pattern to the inside. On the patterned paper, I colored in just the lilies. The label is also in the kit stamped with an SU sentiment. I added 3 clear sequins among the flowers. Adds just enough sparkle. 
I used the sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches except I moved the vertical feature to the right instead of the left.
