Thank You Labels Twenty-seven


This card was inspired by my new Labels Twenty-seven and Decorative Labels Twenty-seven die sets (hereafter called LTS & DLTS).  I also used edgeability dies for the borders. Here's how I made it.

Cut a piece of the lavender patterned paper (from HOTP) just a bit smaller than the white card base. Edge each vertical side with the die cut/embossed border in lavender, and a purple glimmer paper strip.

For the focal, using the lavender gardstock, cut the largest die in the LTS, and the smaller die in the DLTS.  Using the die as a stencil, gently sponge in some purple ink from the stamp pad around the edges to form an inner border.  Stamp the greeting on the smallest piece.

Then from the purple glimmer paper, cut the largest and next to largest dies from the DLTS.  Look closely at the largest purple die cut piece.  Two sides have slits that the largest LTS die-cut (cut in lavender) can slide through, but the other two sides do not.  Carefully clip the center of the inner edge of these other two sides, so the die cut can slide through there as well.

Glue the large lavender die cut in place in the large purple one, making sure the ends glide through the slits.  Then adhere the next purple piece.  The smallest lavender one (with the greeting) is attached with foam tape for added dimension.  To finish the card, I ran a bunch of silver Liquid Pearls along the border and added a silver ribbon bow.
