Sue's Thank You Card

And this is the Thank You card I made for Sue to go with the "ASK" frame I made for her.

I wasn't sure where I was going with this card. I cut a half sheet of Riding Hood Red card stock and I cut a piece of the "Bella Rose" Designer Paper and I just sat there and looked at the card.

I wanted to use the scallop punch for the "Thank You" again!!! But I didn't ant it to sit on top of the card like I did for the one I made for Denise. What to do, what to do???? LOL The big move was to tape the rose side of the decorative paper on top of the card stock.

Then I decided I was going to use the decorative paper as a stripe on the left side of the card. I cut the layers and taped them together and set them on top of the card. It was ok but the right side needed something "different."

I decided to use the circle punch and make it so the "Thank You" would be on the inside of the card. I got to use that scallop that I wanted to!! I liked what was happening with the card but it still needed something more. Some bling??? Maybe!!!

I used the Mat Pack and did a little paper piercing in the bottom right corner. I was happy with that too! And that was a good thing. Once you make those holes in your paper it's kind of hard to hide them if you don't like them!!! LOL

Then I walked away from my worktable for a minute and when I came back I looked at the HUGE mess on my table and saw the Pretties Kit sitting there and I thought the pearls in it would look FABULOUS on that strip. SO I took three medium size ones out and set them in place. It looked ok but I thought maybe five would be better. When digging in the box for two more that size I saw the smaller ones and took them out and set them in place. And the next thing I knew I was "gluing" them in place with Crystal Effects! And tah dah, the card was done!!! It looks simpler than it was. And to make more it would be very simple and very quick. It's always that first one you make that takes the most time, isn't it???
