Little gift cards

When I send out the Playground prizes, I always try my best to include a card as well. With the recent draw for the Stix2 goodies, I needed to whip up a few little gift cards - all to be similar. This is what I came up with, all five of them:

I used:

- 4" x 4" square white linen card blanks

- a stamp from Uniko Studio's 'Gerbera' set, stamped using Memento 'Tuxedo Black' ink then coloured with Whispers markers

- the sentiment is from the same set, also stamped using Memento 'Tuxedo Black' ink

I only recently got my first Uniko stamps, this is my second set and I'm absolutely hooked. I love the designs, quality of the photo polymer with a perfect image every time, brilliant service from Bev - and also the fact that they come in DVD cases (like SU's unmounted stamps). Love, love Uniko!!

My first set (thanks to the generosity of a sweet blogging friend, mwah!) will make an appearance soon - it's under wraps at the moment 'cos I used it for some DT work.

Edit: I've been persuaded to enter these into the current challenge over at Uniko, which is 'Flowers'.  They seem so simple that I hesitated but here goes anyhow! :)

These are fabulous Di! Your stamping caught my eye in my read list so had to pop across! I'm slightly in love with these geberas too! Coloured brilliantly! Please enter the Uniko challenge with them if you haven't already done so as it's a flower theme and these deserve a spotlight in the gallery there. X

Simple... but definitely stunning, love the image and the different colours, never heard of whisper markers.
Laughed at Sarn's comment thought about an old saying we used to say, way back when.

Postman, postman, don't be slow,
Be like Elvis, go man go.
