Cheery Lynn Thank You


Hi, I'm here today with a Thank You card inspired by Cheery Lynn's Give Thanks Challenge.  Blue is my favorite color and I tend to gravitate towards it when I want something both simple and elegant.  I love it paired with kraft paper.  I kept with a simple cool color scheme with this card.


First I cut the largest Horizon Square Boutique Stacker Frame from the set out of a solid blue paper.  I adhered it to a 5.5 inch square card front.  I then cut a piece of kraft paper to a 4.75 inch square.  I used the largest circle from the matching Horizon Circle Boutique Stacker Frame set to cut a piece of design paper.  I cut The Thank You twice and layered them, offsetting the blue one underneath for a shadow effect.  Before gluing the thank you down I added in the Notre Dame Cathedral Doily die in white underneath.  It fit perfectly onto the Horizon Circle layer.

Last I made the flowers using blue and white paper, a molding mat and tool and the Chrysanthemum strip die.  These are such quick and easy flowers, they always look delicate and lovely.  I added kraft leaves behind the flowers from the Build a Flowr #2 die and then glued chunky glass glitter to the center of the flowers for some sparkle.
