Hello! Thanks for stopping by! I'd like to share a 'Thank you' card with you for Cut At Home.

2016-03-28 18.22.35 2016-03-28 18.22.58

I've used the beautiful Graphic 45 A Ladies Diary 12x12 paper collection.

Here are my card measurements:
Card Base: 5" x 10", scored at 5" me a 5" x 5" square card.
First Mat: 4 7/8" x 4 7/8"
Second Mat: 4 3/4" x 4 3/4"
For the beautiful center piece, I've used the Spellbinders Nestabilities Floral Assortment Die.
This is a beautiful die! It is very intricate. To get a clean die cut, I ran it through my Sizzix Big Shot Machine, using a Sizzix Precision Base Plate. This Base Plate is a game-changer...I don't know how I lived without it for so long! I've added two pieces of chipboard behind my die cut to give it dimension, then layered it on top of my mat pieces. For each mat piece, I used a Tim Holtz Distressing Tool, to distress the edges, I then inked all my edges using Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Vintage Photo, using a Mini Ink Blending Tool. I then cut another piece from the G45 A Ladies Diary to 3 1/8" x 3 1/4" to add to the white center of my die. I've adhered all my pieces down with Angel Craft tape.

To finish off my card, I've added a typed sentiment "Thank you" on the same Kraft Cardstock as my card base. I've added several beautiful flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts, along with two rolled roses, using a Marianne Creatables Dies Rose Buds & Leaves cut from the same paper. I love adding paper flowers, along with mulberry flowers. This die, along with the Heartfelt Creations Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit make it so easy & quick to add rolled roses to any project! I then finished it off with a few pearls, a glitter gem, and a cute bow from Marianne Creatables!

This card came together rather quickly & I love the result. I hope you check out the start to finish video, as well as a full list of supplies used on Cut At Home's Blog!
