Black and Red Inspired! And A Little Bit Of Saffron Thrown In!

Mixed Bunch Thank You Card

One of my downline members was showing me a project she had made with a red flower on a black and white background. I loved the elegant look of the red with the black and I knew that I wanted to make a card with the black and red colors.

Here is my version. I also used a card sketch from the Retro Sketches card sketch site. Sometimes I really like starting with a card sketch because it can give me direction. It is absolutely amazing how many possibilities there are even when you are working within a sketch.

The flower is made with the Mixed Bunch stamp set and the Blossom punch for the first large layer. I filled in the background with petals cut with the Fun Flowers die. The center is made with a stack flowers punched with the Boho Blossoms punch.  The Boho Blossoms punch is an amazing punch for adding touches to cards.

The little flourish is a tiny sneak peek at an upcoming stamp set Everything Eleanor. I received it when I attended the Leadership Conference this past January. Everything else can be found in my online store.

Have a Great Day!
