I used the Newton's Nook Designs "Versatile Vases" to create a feminine and more elegant thank you card. I've had this set for a little while and I've been dying to ink it up. It has so many pretty floral images and I love how you can really mix and match the different vases - they really are versatile! :)

I started my card by die cutting a tag-shaped window from purple cardstock. For the background of my window, I dry embossed a white piece of cardstock slightly larger than my window using a polka-dot embossing folder. I mounted the purple layer onto the white background using foam tape and matted both layers onto some light grey cardstock. I then colored the flowers using Copic Markers and fussy cut them out leaving a white border. I heat embossed the mason jar onto vellum using Ranger Liquid Platinum embossing powder. I also stamped the mason jar onto white cardstock using a light grey ink so that it wouldn't show through the vellum mason jar. I colored the white mason jar using Copic Markers to give the mason jar some added depth and dimension. I then fussy cut both mason jars and adhered all of the layers together, sandwiching the flowers in between both of the mason jars.

Flowers: V93, V95, Y00, Y02, YG41, YG45
Vase: B0000, B000, B00, C0, C2

I pieced together the thank you sentiment from the "Simply Sentimental" set and white heat embossed it onto a strip of the same light grey cardstock. As a finishing touch, I added some Pretty Pink Posh sequins, a bow at the top of the window and some clear Wink of Stella glitter to the flowers.

I hope you were inspired by my card and I cannot wait to see what you create! Don't forget to visit the Newton's Nook Designs Blog for more info and to see more amazing projects. Thanks again for stopping by! ♥
