Mass Thank You Cards

I need a bunch of thank-you cards, so I made several of these this evening. The first card I made is the one laying flat. I like it, but I think the addition of the striped baja breeze dp to the rest of the cards is much prettier.

I dropped Baja Breeze and Certainly Celery inks onto a Cut N Dry felt pad to stamp my images. This method works great when you have several cards you need to make and you want more than one color on your image.

The flower vase was made with Stampin' Up's decorative ornament punch.  The Weed images in the vase are by Rubbernecker (SKU #497-02 and #497-07).  The sentiment is also by Rubbernecker (SKU 04-06KK) and was stamped in Soft Suede.  The border punch is Doily Lace by Martha Stewart.  The designer paper is Stampin' Up's Elegant Soiree.

Okay....I gotta get busy writing and addressing my thank-you notes.  Have a great evening!
