Butterfly Thank You Cards

With so many thoughts about Thanksgiving, I decided to expand the idea of this holiday to giving thanks to others with Thank You cards. I made 6 similar ones using the CTMH paper pack "For Always" that I have out to work on wedding layouts for one of our daughters.



I love the bright, clean feel of these colors together.  I made up my own sketch so that I could use the black patterned "zip strips" on the edge of the paper. The stamp set used is "4 My Friend." I cut the two layers of the flowers and the butterflies using Cricut Art Philosophy.  The top flower layer has an old black brad and pop dot to add dimension. The butterflies were cut at 1" and 3/4" then tied together with black crochet thread. On one set of the cards I debossed the small white panel and on the other set I embossed the front of the card itself, which I think I preferred in the end.

I'd like to thank you for visiting and may God fill your heart with thankfulness!

I'm sharing these cards with the following challenges:
