Bliss Note Cards

I saw this card on SCS and just love it!

I made three different colors and I like them all. But the first one the bow is a bit over whelming.  I used a 1 1/4" ribbon from SU.  It didn't show in the picture. The card stocks were shimmery very pretty.  The post office would love this one.

Then I made this black and white with a smaller bow.
And this one.

Thanks for looking!

Hi dear Helen,

These are all so very pretty and classic! Nothing like classic cards, I feel. I like ALL of them. But the first one with the stripey ribbon is my fave.

I like them all, Helen. Love SU wide ribbon. Mine mostly go on cards that are being handed out to someone rather than mailing. Great inspiration, thanks.

I love your cards. I know the bow is large on the pink one but I think I love this one the best.

I saw your post on make it monday and followed it here.

Wow love these. Your card caught my eye over at MIM and had to have a close up peep. definitely worth it, so gorgeous and in all the colour ways. The broad ribbon is stunning.

What a lovely set of note cards. All the colours are gorgeous and they are very elegant.
I saw your note cards on the "Make it Monday" linky party.

I love the one with the big bow best!

Ann said...

you did it again, you created more stunning cards. I actually like the big bow but I can imagine that mailing it would be a bit of a pain

Hello Helen saw your card on MIM.
and I am glad I popped over for a closer look, all the cards are lovely, You say that you think the Big Bow is overwhelming but honestly it looks wonderful on the card. Using a striped Bow looks stunning it adds depth and texture it is a WOW as far as I am concerned.

Hi Helen! I saw this design, too, and you did a fantastic job! I actually think my favs are the first and the last. Although the ribbon is pretty wide on the first one, it really works! On the last one I like the ribbon simplicity. Very nice!

ManuK said...

Hello, Helen! Your cards are so elegant, my favorite has to be the last one. But the other two come very close. Great work!
