Simple Thanks

Welcome

I made some thank you cards recently, and I wanted to keep them simple.


So out came the (NBUS) Simon Says Painted Thanks die, and I started by cutting a white and blue rectangle with a stitched rectangle die by Memory Box, cutting the sentiment, and then inserting them in the opposite rectangle.


I then mounted the smaller rectangle onto the largest stitched rectangle die cut in the opposite colour, before being mounted again onto the base, swapping the colour again.


To finish one card I added a strip of patterned card across one layer,



on the other I used metallic butterfly stickers to  finish it.
