Card Evolution

I received a store-bought thank you card in the mail that I loved (this girl has GREAT taste in design) and decided to recreate it with TAC stamps that I have. The card above is the card I received. Pretty, huh? The next few cards show what my take on that card was.

Started out simple (notice the score lines above the image).

Decided it would be pretty with a ribbon added.

Thought it would be pretty in a different color, with a different "theme".

Also wanted to try the same card with a different image.

Now those cards look different, but they are the same design. Ink color, ribbon choice, stamp choice and even sentiment choice are all that made the difference. And these cards were QUICK!! You could easily make a set of six or so in 5 minutes...depending on how fast you tie those ribbons!

Paper: TAC Ivory Cardstock
Stamps: TAC Floral Labels, Ordinary Greetings (Happy Birthday), Enjoy Nature (Purple Card)
Ink: Palette Burnt Umber, Claret & Violete
Other: Scor-pal & Ribbon
