Thank You Bouquet

Hi Crafty Friends,

It's challenge time with my friends over on the CCEE Stampers challenge blog. Liz Williams our challenge hostess for the month, finishes off the month with one last challenge.

Apparently March was National Thank You month. So, before the month is over, make a thank you card and send an unexpected thank you to someone whose small act of kindness has not gone unnoticed by you.

For my card today, I decided to say "Thank You" with a bouquet of flowers! I used Karen Burniston's new Woven Basket die set which is a variation on a Pop-up Box Card. The die comes with the pieces to die cut the basket and create the woven effect, the grass, flowers and stems.

I die cut my flowers using various shades of orange cardstock and some orange polka dotted patterned paper, layering them all together. I added Nuvo Drops to the centres of each of the flowers.

Seeing this is for a Thank You challenge, I die cut Karen Burniston's Thank You die from teal cardstock 3 times layering them all together for added strength. I then attached the sentiment to the basket using acetate.

I wan't to play with the new owl from the Feathered Friends die set, so I die cut that and added it so it is peeking out behind the flowers on the front of the basket.

Here you can see my card when it is folded flat ready to be placed in an envelope so it can be mailed.

Don't forget to check out the CCEE Stampers blog (goes live 12 AM EST) to see the rest of the creations the CCEE Stampers created this week. You can also see more details of their creations on their individual blogs:

Frances, this card is amazing! I love the basket and all the flowers, but that little owl is just the cutest!

Oh, my, this is an amazing card. How wonderful that it folds up like it does!! Love that you tucked a little owl in the mix of flowers too. Wow, someone is going to really love this gorgeous paper bouquet.

You know that I love this card, Frances! I think that's my favorite of the new KB dies -- and the colors you chose are wonderful.

Frances, this card is fantastic!! What size envelope does it fit in? I'm waiting for my order to arrive from KB, and can't wait for it to get here!! Your friend in Pennsylvania, USA, Linda

Linda, without the Thank You it would probably fit in a standard envelope .. with the thank you probably a larger size or square envelope would work. I think Karen probably mentions envelope size on her how to video.
