Homemade Pansies With Note Cards

 Has anyone ever heard of Carol Wilson Embossed Note Cards?  Many years ago I had some beautiful note cards from this company and I absolutely loved them. The notecards I had from them were embossed with pretty purple pansies and a beautiful envelope to match.
Click here to see where my inspiration came from for these note cards, I made.  Certainly they are not near as pretty as her note cards but I love her work and decided to try and make something similar.
Take a closer look at the pretty little dimensional pansies. This was something I came up on my own using my Spellbinders Rose Creations Die Cuts.  Yes, the rose die cut.
I used the two smallest die cuts and cut them into three different sizes and glued them together to look like a pansies shape.  I then took my Tom Bow Pens and added some water color to the center and then used the other end of my pen to make the pansies lines on each of them and added a yellow center like most pansies have.

I made a set of three cards and three matching envelopes. 
I stamped my pansies  and leaves with my peg stamp set from Rubber Stamp Tapestry

As you take a closer look here you will notice I also added a large "real" pansy to the center of each card.  I happened to have real pansies that had been pressed and saved.  So I decided to add them to the center of each card for a more interesting look.

Take note that I also stamped my pansies on the left front of each envelope
and on the back flap as well.

I hope you enjoyed seeing this today?  Now...if I get enough requests and comments on a tutorial of how I did the flowers I will at a later time show you how I made them.  Just let me know?  You can leave a comment on my site or email me (right hand column) to let me know if your interested in a tutorial?

Thanks for stopping ladies and I hope to hear from you with any thoughts?
