Thank You!

With Christmas over, it's time to think about thank you cards! Here's a fun one I made using a Spellbinder's die and the technique I showed here.  The dimensions are a little different because for this to work you need your score lines to be at the center of the die, and in a bit from the inside edge of the die.  But the technique is the same - cut with the die on either side, leaving the inside uncut as discussed in the previous post.  Then emboss the whole. Next I took a piece of the pink striped paper and die-cut the shape out of it so it would fit around the element as you see here.

Then I cut 3 more elements with the same die - one in white card stock, one in a silky white pattern, and one in pink - the same as the base card.  The one cut from white card stock was stamped for the focal you see here (small stamp from HOTP) and colored with gel pens & my Dove blender before being adhered in place.

I punched a border using my Martha Stewart Doily Lace Punch, and then finished the outside of the card with some ribbons and die cuts.

With the card open, you can see where I put the other two pieces I cut.  I stamped my sentiment on the white silky one and cut a piece from the pink one so it would align properly.  The pink will be used to write my personal message.
