Tart & Tangy Lemons

Tonight I made two matching cards like the one above to go with the two gift bags that I have to give to the secretaries at my daughters school. I found these lemon and clove hand soap and lotion sets at TJ Max and instantly thought of stamping a lemon card to go with them.

On the card base I used Yoyo Yellow card stock and stamped the Print Pattern background to match the gift bag using the same color. On the center piece I stamped the lemons in Versa Mark on white paper and heat embossed using clear embossing powder, then brayed over the top with Yoyo Yellow and Summer Sun and matted this piece with Old Olive. Then stamped the Thank You on top with Stazon. The round lemon on the top was stamped in Versa Mark first then in Yoyo Yellow and then rocked and rolled in Summer Sun, then dusted with clear embossing powder, heated and punched out with a circle punch. I hope the ladies like these!
