Thank You!!

Happy Friday!! Only a few more days until Christmas...I hope you are almost done with your shopping and preparations!! It's my turn to post on the Die-Versions blog and I took a step away from Christmas cards to create this thank you card.


The Cut Out dies are so much fun - they make a beautiful focal point on the front of a card. I cut the Thank You Cut Out die out of first the base paper and then the top layer, offsetting it a bit. Behind the Thank You, I added iridescent vellum to highlight the sentiment. A Whispers Lacey Dots die was tucked beneath the ribbon and adorned with gems. A Wee Petites Button die was added to the center of the bow. A Wee Petites Buggy Butterfly was covered in sugar coating and gems and popped up with foam tape for dimension.


I am entering this in the following challenges:
  1. Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge - Anything Goes
  2. DL.Art - December Linky
Thanks so much for stopping by!! I hope all of you have a very merry holiday season and that 2015 brings you much love and happiness :)

So very pretty, and lovely colors and a nice change from Christmas, too and we can all use "thank you" cards this time of the year!! Sorry I haven't been around much, but I am so behind with our family Christmas being here on Sunday...after that I promise to do better (smile)!!

Nice change of pace from the Christmas cards, but still most stunning. I'm unfamiliar with iridescent vellum...learned something new! Love the torn paper, the script background at the top and those fabulous die cuts. The colors are splendid as well. Beautiful card and great texture too. TFS & Merry Christmas. Hope your little snow storm wasn't too dreadful. It was in the hi 60-s today, and tomorrow 78 is predicted. I like that!!! SC is not that warm. Hugs

It's beautiful Lisa! I love the muted colour palette. You really know how to play with tones. :)

Andrea Ockey Parr said...

This card is absolutely stunning! It is elegant, yet full of energy. I love the colors that you used so skillfully and I thought it was genius of you to use so many different edge punches and dies so skillfully. That ribbon is gorgeous and I adore how the whole thing came together. Thanks so much for the inspiration and for sharing this with us here at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog!

My sweetest friend, this is gorgeous! As much as I adore Christmas cards, it is refreshing to see a burst of sunshiny warmth! The papers are extraordinary.. they fill my heart with happiness. :o) I do love the word cut-outs, too! I love how you've layered ribbon and the lacy border beneath it. The ultra sparkling butterfly is simply gorgeous. I truly think butterflies make every project even more special. Gorgeous creation as always, my dearest Lisa! :o)

Hugs and blessings,
Karen
