This is my second creation with the Sending Smiles bundle. I saw a very similar card on another site, but can’t remember the creator to give them credit for the inspiration. The basic layout is the same, but I changed up the colors on the flowers. The Stylish Shapes dies were used to cut a window in the piece of DSP from the “Tea Boutique” Designer Series Paper.
Growing up and living most of my life in Maryland, I always loved Maryland’s state flower, the Black-eyed Susan. I used Mango Melody (stamped off, then “huffed” on) for the flower petals. The flower centers are stamped in Soft Suede so the flower resembles a Black-Eyed Susan. The remaining colors used are Sweet Sorbet and Garden Green. The greeting “A Note of Thanks” was also stamped with Sweet Sorbet, then die cut with the long rectangle from the “Sending” dies. A small white baker’s twine bow is behind the greeting panel. I then popped up the greeting on dimensionals and accented with an Iridescent Rhinestone Basic Jewel. A super simple and easy card!
