Thank you

I found this lovely piece of Tattered Lace paper in the bottom of my paper drawer and thought it would be perfect for my quick Thank You card.  I'm entering Crafty Cardmakers 'Thankful' challenge, the Cuttlebug Mania 'Thanks' challenge and Die Cut Divas 'Thanks' challenge.


Card blank: 6" x 6" kraft
Die: Cheery Lynn ' Thank You 2'
CardL Purple matt
Paper: Tattered Lace: Purple floral paper (magazine freebie), white printer paper
Other: Wink of Stella

I trimmed the paper to a square and layered it onto slightly larger piece of purple card.  I die cut the sentiment from the top corner, keeping all the pieces to inlay.  The panel was then attached to the card front.  To ensure the sentiment was the same thickness as the card and paper on the card front, I attached a snippet of purple card to white printer paper and then die cut the sentiment.  The sentiment and pieces I had put to one side were then inlaid into the card.  To finish, I highlighted the purple matt and the sentiment with a Wink of Stella.
