Elegant Thank You Card

I made this for the Caardvarks challenge, which this week is being sponsored by Cropstop, so a yummy prize up for grabs there. The challenge was to use a diecut, nice and simple! The flower was cut at 3" from George, then I cut a plain circle to stamp the sentiment on, I used a foam stamp that I got free with a magazine for the thanks circle words. Popped a prima flower in the centre, and ran the lime flower through the cuttlebug (swiss dots folder) The green strips at each side were cut using a Martha Stewart punch, and I added strips of real lace as well. I do like gatefold cards, and now that I have a score-pal they're even easier. This one is 6" square, so you cut your 12 x 12 card to 6", then score it at 3" from each side. Voila, a gatefold card.

Must get one of those gadgets to make scoring gatefold cards easier. I love the effect of all this vertical layering. Great card.
