Thanks with Lacy Labels

Hi, I wanted to let my friends know how much I appreciate them, so I've made a collection of 'Thank You' cards with the new Lite cartridge "Lacy Labels".

This cut is called "Flower 7" and is sized at 4 1/4". I've used the Gypsy and welded two images together to keep the frame shape. The card has been inked around the edges, and spritzed with Perfect Pearls. I've distressed and glittered the edges of the layered flower, after stamping with a script stamp, then added a button to the centre. The card is embossed with Craft Concepts 'Budding Vine'.

This image is "Buttrfly" and was cut at 3". I've folded the layered butterflies in half to add dimension. Cuttlebug folder used was 'Jules Jewels".

This cut is called "Asian", and is sized at 5". Again the layered flowers were distressed and glittered, and the background embossed with Cuttlebug 'Roses'.

"Flower 1" is the name of this cut, and it's sized at 3 1/4". The tulips on the end have been adhered with foam dots, and glittered around the edge. Cuttlebug 'Swiss Dots' was used on this one.

This image is cut at 3 1/4", and is called "Thnkg You". I've added a cute dragonfly (CM punch), and used Craft Concepts 'Dragonfly' for the background.

This last one is called "Soar" and is cut at 3 1/2". I removed the word soar from the image, and again stamped the layer with a script stamp. The background for this was embossed with Cuttlebug 'Birds & Swirls'.

All these finished cards are about the same size, so this shows how deceiving the cut sizes can be. I hope you like them.

Wow, I've just realised I am over 5,000 visitors to my blog. To celebrate, I'm organizing some blog candy to give away. Check back over the next few days for details. Existing followers at the time of that post will receive double entries, so join now to be in with an extra chance.

Till next time,

  2. What did you use for "thanks"? Is it a stamp or a die cut? Love your work!

  3. Hi emo812, and thanks for your lovely comment. The "thanks" is a stamp from a set called "Outlined for Fun" by Stampin' Up. It's a great set. Hope this helps.
    Happy crafting!!
