Thank You Card-Sassy Starter Sunday


Uploaded from the Photobucket iPhone App



Hey Ya'll!  It's Leah from "My Craft and Chat Cafe."
My 19 y/o DD asked me to make her a few "Thank you" cards, so I thought I'd make that my project to share with you all here at Sheila's awesome blog, "She's A Sassy Lady."

I used the butterfly on page 53 from Cricut Art Nouveau.  Using my Gypsy, I cut the different layers at 2.75 inches.  The colors are Stampin' Up! Lucky Limeade, Pool Party, Peach Parfait, Calypso Coral, Poppy Parade, and Soft Suede.

A 5 1/2 x 11 piece of Stampin' Up! Soft Suede folded in half makes the card base.

Here is the first layer.  A 5 1/4 x 4 piece of Stampin' Up! Lucky Limeade with a 5 x 3 3/4 piece of Stampin' Up! Everyday Enchantment Designer Series Paper layered on top of the Lucky Limeade.

A Piece of ribbon from Hobby Lobby to make a bow.

A closer look at the butterfly put together.  
The second layer started with a 4 1/4 x 3 3/4 piece of Stampin' Up! Calypso Coral cardstock, then a 4 x 3 1/2 piece of Stampin' Up! Soft Suede cardstock, next a 3 3/4 x 3 1/4 piece of Stampin' Up! Whisper White cardstock.

I used the "thanks" sentiment from the Stampin' Up! So Happy For You stamp set stamped with Stampin' Up! Soft Suede Classic Ink.

A few Stampin' dimensionals pop it up!  And there you have it!  Thanks for looking and, Sheila, thanks for having me. Until next time....

Crafty hugs,
Leah
