Just Believe Thank You Card

I still had the white on white cards on my mind.  Though this one is not entirely white on white.  I wanted to add a bit of color.  

The base of my card is white and on top of that is the Vintage Wallpaper texture.  On top of that I added the Lattice Die.  Now with things like that, things that are SO hard to tape down, I always use my Xyron machine.  It adds a layer of sticky to the back so when you are done cutting out your shape it is now like a sticker. You can just take off the backing and expose the sticky part and affix it to your card.  I got mine last fall at Michael's with my coupon.  And I use my coupon for more rolls of the tape stuff. With this machine you can make anything into a sticker!  I save the scraps so I can use my punches on them and just remove the backing and stick the pieces into place.  I don't remember how much the machine costs but the refills are $20.  That is when I use my half off coupons!!!  I don't use the machine too often but when I cut out pieces like this it sure comes in handy.  You don't need the big machine either.  I have yet to wish I would have bought the largest one.  

OK, so on top of the lattice layer I added a Pretty in Pink layer measuring 2-1/8" x 3-1/4" .  The stamped top layer is cut 2" x 3-1/8".  I used the Direct to Rubber technique for that.  And the words are from a custom made stamp I had done for me a while back at Vista Print.  I use it SO often too!  It comes in handy and it fit perfectly in that space.

I then added a butterfly from my container of them!!!  It looks like a science experiment gone bad in that container!!!  So many helpless butterflies!!  LOL

I added a few pearls around the card and it was finished.  Using all of that white sure gives it an elegant look!  I had a lot of fun making this card!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
