A Botanical Builders and Gift of Love Diagonal Slit Technique Thank You Card

Today's thank you card is also another fun technique.  I used the "Botanical Builders for the flowers and one of the leaves. I used the "Flourish" framelits for the top two flowery leaves. I used the largest one in the set and I cut off what I wanted to use.  I set the flowers in place using pop up glue dots.  I set the leaves in place using mini glue dots.  I added pearls to the center of each flower and also to the top two green leaves where there's round circles.  You will need to click on the photo to see a closer view, then you'll see those tiny pearls.

To do this fun technique you will need a card base.  I used Rich Razzleberry, an 8-1/2" x 11" piece, folded in half.  Then I cut a piece of Whisper White 4" x 5-1/4".  I cut a piece of decorative paper from the "Blooms and Bliss" Decorative Series Paper (DSP) pack.  I cut the DSP on the right side about 1-1/4" the way down from the top and across to the left side about 1-1/4" the way up from the bottom.  Tape the DSP to the Whisper White card stock on the top and the bottom. This leaves a slit in the card for your words.

The words came from the "Gift of Love" hostess set.  I love how this technique looks.  It opens up to a lot of fun future cards!!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
