A third card for the Barbles #2 challenge, this time using the bottom right photo in the collage (photo shown at bottom of this post):
In this photo, all I saw was a large yellow flower, and black. No color or sketch challenge here, I just figured I would use the negative die technique on a yellow flower, front and center. A large rhinestone brad in the center, and a couple mini rhinestones by the sentiment, which is from Dawn McVey’s Signature Greetings set. (LOVE that set!)

And then I was saw the Clean and Simple Card Class Day 10 topic – creating simple card sets – so I quickly worked up 3 more cards to complete a set of 4 Thank You cards.
I also tried Julie’s little box template for them, but I loaded them in the opposite direction. I adjusted the size a little bit, to accommodate the large gemstone centers’ adding bulk to the stack, but it’s a tad bit too big in some spots. So I’ll need to watch that next time. This is only my second template attempt, which turned out fairly well, I think.
I added a few little coordinating flowers to the box for decoration, but in retrospect, I guess I should have used gems for the flower centers. For some reason I grabbed buttons. Maybe that’s weird, but oh well!
Seriously, these cards only took me 20 minutes to create. Add in another 10 minutes for the box, and this is a perfect project for a special little gift.
Thanks for stopping by today. And have a great weekend!
