Specially Requested Thank You Cards

It's Monday, Monday....
How was YOUR weekend? I was a stamping machine. I made a lot of Valentines and some RAKs that I've promised to send. Hopefully I will get some photo editing done this week to share those with you!
For now, I've got a project I worked on last month.A very special friend of mine asked me to make her some Thank You cards. I would go out of my way to do a favor for this friend. She is one of a kind! VERY special.
Light Blue and Orange were the colors she requested so I went with Bashful Blue and Pumpkin Pie. Pumpkin is MUCH better than Only Orange. In fact, I doubt I have used Only Orange since Stampin UP came out with Pumpkin.

I came up with a simple design for a 4 1/4" card. And to keep from using too much of my supply of any one color, I alternated each color for the different layers. I used a stamp that was designed for a small tag punch, but it punched nicely from a circle punch as well.
I couldn't decide which Cuttlebug folder to use, so I used them all. I also used a variety of ribbons and added punched flowers for dimension.
On the orange and blue cards, I added a white panel inside stamped with a flower border. And I also stamped the envelopes with a pair of flowers. I love how these turned out. Each one was different.

Thank you for stopping by today!!
I hope you have a WONDERFUL week.
Be sure to say hi!

Hey. Love the cards. You have given me an idea for my thank you cards. Didn't get any stamping done this weekend. I need to finish my thank you cards and get them out and I need to do some birth annoucements. One day I will get them done. Take care.

Very pretty. I've looked at that embossing folder before with the birds but wasn't sure how it would look on a card. I love how you used it! Now I want it!
