Floral notecards

I never seem to have certain cards on hand when I need them, you know what I mean? Thank yous, sympathy, birthday, are the usual ones I am scrambling to make at the last minute and I don't usually have the time to sit down and create as needed either. The other day I decided to fix this and make up some quick notecards for those "Oops, I need a card for this NOW!" occasions.

 I cut my watercolor paper down to size and stamped the flower from Unity's Imperfection Is Beauty and sentiments from Everything Wonderful and then later I grabbed my watercolors and brush and painted them at the kitchen table while the kids did arts and crafts. I love pre-stamping images on watercolor paper for that reason because it doesn't take up much space and is a pretty portable project for my busy life.
 Here are some closer looks.



I made 2 sets before I ran out of watercolor paper, one of which I'll be shipping to a friend in Australia! For hers I stamped some of the wonderful botanicals from the gorgeous Wildflowers and Wings SMAK kit by Unity onto the envelopes.

Happy Friday and Friends with Flair at Unity! I wish you all an amazing and crafty weekend!

I am also entering this into the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: All things bright and beautiful.

p.s. If any of you are on Instagram I finally just got around to starting an IG account and would love it if you would come by and follow my crafty endeavors. There is a giveaway in the works that I'll hopefully have organized by next Friday! Here is the link to my page: http://instagram.com/crystalamariscreations/

Hugs,

Crystal

Very nice set of cards to have on hand. Love that flower and all of the great sentiments for it. :)

What a cute idea! I tend to do the outside of the card with no sentiment and do the inside with a sentiment later.
