Thanks - die cuts

My project today is a simple elegant thanks featuring Impression Obsession dies and stamps.

Putting It Together

Sometimes CAS (Clean and Simple) just feels right.

Fishing for an idea, I looked through my Impression Obsession dies and stamps. The stitched flower and leaf fit so well with the Thanks die.

I had the idea to use a plaid paper for the flower and then had to find a cloth type pattern for the leaf. For the sentiment, I went with a solid linen texture. For each element, I also cut 2 from white heavy cardstock.

 I stacked each die cut to give them dimension before adding them to a kraft card base (switching from the white in my dry layout). I added a brown gem to the centre of the flower.

Inside, I used black ink to stamp a sentiment and flourish.
