Garden Gate Thank You Card with Cheery Lynn Designs

Cheery Lynn Designs Rectangle Card-Makers Stackers Nesting Dies paired with Scalloped Rectangle Card-Makers Stackers Nesting Dies create the perfect backdrop for this sweet and simple Thank You card. 

For a bit of rustic charm, I cut Kraft cardstock with the darling little Garden Gate die and wrapped it up into a bow with pink and white Baker's Twine that coordinated perfectly with the pastel colors in my patterned paper.  I wanted the sentiment to really stand out as the focal point for this card, so I chose to stamp in onto cream cardstock cut with one of the larger French Flair Classic Large Stackers Nesting Dies from the set and popped it up with dimensional foam to really make it stand out against the garden gate. I love the gorgeous embossed border that is created when cutting with the French Flair Classic Large Stackers Nesting Dies, especially if you use the "Cuttlehug" Large Metal Adapter Plate.  With my Big Shot, I've found that if I use the metal adapter plate in my stack it alleviates the need to first cut and then emboss and instead does it with one easy step with most dies.

How cute! I love that gate die! I think it was just brilliant to layer the sentiment die cut over it. Really, really eye catching, my friend!
