A Little Lace, Beautiful Boutique, Corner Tuck Technique, Thank You Card

 Today I wanted to play with the "A Little Lace" set and I ran across this fun technique.  Bonus!!! You can see a video of the technique here.  I'll provide you with the scaled down version.

The base of the card is an 8" x 4-1/4" piece of Petal Pink card stock.  It was scored at 2-1/2".  That scored piece is folded inward.  A 2-1/4" x 4" piece of Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the "Magnolia Lane" 12" x 12" paper pack was taped on the small flap.

A 3-1/4" x 4-1/4" piece of Cajun Craze was cut for the back layer of the focal piece.  The focal piece was cut using a 3" x 4" piece of Whisper White card stock. The original piece was cut from the thick Whisper White card stock. I just used the regular thickness.  Another piece was cut for the inside.  The image was stamped on the outside piece using black Memento ink.  It was colored using the Cajun Craze, light and dark Blends pens and the Petal Pink light and dark Blends pen.  There's also a touch of light Granny Apple Green in there for the leaves.  Click on the photo for a closer view.

The words are from the "Beautiful Boutique" set.  I wanted to make a thank you card and the words that came with the set didn't have a thank you.  The words that come in the set are fun and I will probably play with them at another time. The words were stamped using black Memento ink.

On the inside piece I stamped the small flower that was in the set and I colored it as I did the larger flowers.  

The corner piece is a 2-1/4" x 2-1/4" piece of Petal Pink card stock that was cut in half on the diagonal.  I stamped the outside of it using the border image that came with the "A Little Lace" set.  

I taped the front piece to the Cajun Craze piece.  I taped that to the DSP panel.  I first centered the layered panel so I knew where to add the tape.  You don't want to tape your card shut.  Then I added tape to the back of the inside panel.  With the card open I set the inside panel over the Cajun Craze piece (stamped side down). I lined it up and then I just shut the card.  The piece was centered and no edges show.  

And the final step was attaching the corner tuck piece.  You just add a glue dot to the three corners.  Line the two edges up on the inside of the card and set in place.  Close your card and tuck that top corner in and the card is done.  Well, almost.  I did add the faceted gems to the center of the flowers.  

This was a fun and easy technique to do.  If I were to change anything, I think I would have taken that other corner piece and worked it into the design on the bottom left of the card for balance.  I'll have to give that a try sometime and see what it looks like.  

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
