A Thank you card !

I'm back with another quick posting, I made this thank you card early this morning for a dear blogging friend that sent me my happy mail last week for winning her blog candy.    I was surprised to receive my box filled with Close to my Heart Scrapbooking craft supplies....  It's almost a similarity to Stampin Up but wow I was stoked just mesmerizing my goodies.   A while back while I was blog hopping I ran across someone that had a card that caught my eye, and I saved the image because I knew  I wanted to try and  make this card one day... They were no instructions on how to do it so I just figured it out and it was actually a very simple card to make.    BTW the  flower stamp and sentiment is from the Spring My Acrylix set from Close to my Heart.
All I did was cut a white cardstock 4 1/4" x 8 1/2 " , I measured the center point which was at 2 3/4" put that on my Fiskars and cut it on an angle, so then now it looks like an envelope. I used my EK border punch cut two 5" strips and used double stick tape just to tack it down.  I took a piece of scrap paper that was already cut at 4" x 5 1/4" ran that through my Big Shot with my Cuttlebug embossing folder, that I double stick tape under my flap and adhered it to my colored cardstock.... I was in a rush and didn't take a pics of how it looks like inside but it's neat.... I stamped the flower four times with Stampin Up Pixie Pink, fussy cut  and added dimensions to give it that raise look.  I will be making more and will get better pics so you can see what it looks like.  I already  dropped this card off at the Postal office to be mailed out this morning.


Thanks for taking a peek!
