Jen Sat Thanks Word Stitched Borders

This is a busy card, but I honestly have to say that I think it's my favorite of the ones I've shared for this release.  I chose a bold patterned paper (by American Crafts) and cut it down to the size of my card front.  Then, I used the new Stitched Border dies to cut my paper apart.  Leaving a gap the width I wanted, I trimmed the extra part of the patterned paper that I wouldn't need anymore.  I chose a contrasting pattern to layer underneath the flower paper and then popped up the top panel.

The "thanks" sentiment was die cut from the Thanks Large Word Die.   I adhered it between the gaps that I created and then added a few gold sequins.  Such an easy card!

Below are the new products that I've used on this card:
