Girlfriend Gift Set

I wanted to put together a super quick and easy lil' gift card set and I decided to pull out my Watercolor Trio set once again. For this fun set of note cards, I paired it with the Favorite Thoughts stamp set from the Summer Mini. I think this would be a great little gift for that treasured girlfriend - you know who I'm talking 'bout, right? The one you can count on to always be there for you? Yeah, she's the one! Anyway, these are all basically the same design and layout, I just switched up the colors and sentiments. I pulled out several of the returning In Colors - Riding Hood Red, Pacific Point and Baja Breeze. Love those colors - I am so happy to be able to use them again. :)

To make the cards, I sprayed the Confetti White cardstock with water and stamped the image several times without reinking it. After letting the cardstock dry completely it was slightly warped, so I placed it under a towel and ran an iron over it to help it lay flat. Next I stamped the sentiment, added the piercing, flower and silver brad and attached the panel to my card base using Dimensionals. I can't wait to send these fun cards to some of my fantastic friends. I think my favorite quote is the one about "Well behaved women..." I have that quote on a t-shirt and a coffee mug, so you know I had to have it in stamp form, too. LOL!

These are my favorite cards of yours to date! I love the watercolor look and the phrases too. I'd buy a set if you're selling. :-)
