Set of Marbled Floral Thank You Cards

Good morning! A couple months ago I had a custom request for 50 thank you cards from a friend. She had seen the cards I made for a Reverse Confetti Wednesday in the Works post (you can see it HERE) and like them - so since I was doing 50 of them, I was able to simplify them a tiny bit to make them easier to put together. I was actually AMAZED by how quickly these came together! I think it took around 2 hours - and that included cutting and scoring the cardbases even! I didn't do it in a straight 2 hours - it was a bit intermittent, but they really did come together quickly!

If you go watch the video, you'll see how these came together using Reverse Confetti's Something Wonderful Stamp Set, Kindness Cards Stamp Set, my MISTI, 3 different colors of Reverse Confetti dye ink for each color, and some plastic wrap and my finger to marble the colors!

For that video I had only done 3 color combos, and added a frame around the card. This time I skipped the frame (because, hello? die cutting 50 times? no thank you!). I added two color combos, so I ended up with 10 each of 5 different color variations. All the colors are linked below as well, but for the yellow I used Buttercup, Sunshine, and Rust; for the blue I used Seafoam, Mint, and RC Aqua; for the orange I used Peach, Coral, and Tangerine; red used Piggy Bank, Flamingo, and Salsa, and green was Pistachio, Lime Green, and Avocado.

As a final finishing touch, I added some gold splatters to each one using my Starry Colors Palette - my favorite way to add gold splatter! I did 10 at a time, and laid them all out on my desk to dry before moving on to the next ones. It was the perfect finishing touch - I was a little scared to ruin them when I started, but was so glad I decided to go for it!
