Freshly Made Sketches #473


 The layered Thanks Thin Cut makes a bold statement on your projects.  I am always in need of more Thank You cards as I seem to mail them out as soon as they are created!  My card is based on the sketch challenge at Freshly Made Sketches.  Here is the original sketch design-



I created my card with the fun papers from the Bloom with Grace Collection.  This sunflower print is one of my faves! While this collection is retired, a few packs are still available for purchase in the Online Only section of my website.  The Online Only section features literally hundreds of products that are available in limited quantities.  You can view the full selection here



I added in a few layers to make the thanks sentiment really pop. I started by layering a vellum panel onto the Fern background.  I then cut the thanks shadow die three times in vellum.  I adhered the vellum layers together.  The top layer was cut in Espresso cardstock.  After adhering all the layers together, I then applied the sentiment with 3-D foam tape for added dimension.  I layered the shadow layer multiple times to insure that you would not be able to see the foam tape.  Sadly, I do not have clear foam in my craft arsenal, though I know it does exist! I wanted the sentiment popped up, so that I could have the burlap twine running under the sentiment.  A few matte gold sequins finish off the card.
