Thank You Card

A Thank You card today, using a couple of dies I won recently over in the Playground.
A friend recently asked me if a large 2018 Cath Kidston calendar was of any use to me for recycling to make cards.  Well..... she didn't have to ask twice!  The floral paper I used here is from one of the pages in the calendar, I think it was actually the front cover.   The frame was made with a MFT 'Stitched Diagonal' Cover-up die.  I love this die and I can see that I'll be using it for lots of different occasions. I used  Impression Obsession 'Thanks' die, backing the paper with a piece of an adhesive sheet before die cutting to make it easy to attach to the card.  The flower and leaf are punched shapes.  All the plain card was snippets, so I'll be sharing my card over in the Playground.

I am joining in the following challenges:
Pixie's Snippets Playground Challenge #353 ~ Use Snippets
Fab 'n' Funky Challenge Challenge #442 ~ Recycling
Little Red Wagon Challenge #499 ~ Upcycle/Recycle
Die Cut Diva's May Challenge ~ Flowers All Year Round in May


  1. Bright and colourful, striking design and great use of your new dies!

  2. I adore the colour combination and the pretty floral CK design from the calendar works beautifully, and the punched flower and leaf is a great embellishment as a finishing touch. x

  12. I love the layout and that is a beautiful pattern paper used for it. I like that it was used also for the sentiment.

  13. Hi Liz,
    what an amazing bit of re-cycling to use that very pretty calender and that super die together.
    Love this supper gorgeous card.
    I hoard lots of items in case I need them perhaps too much and then forget I've got them to use.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

  14. Great use of recyling Liz! Shabneez x

  15. The flower matches perfectly with the flowers on the recycled calendar paper. I think
    I might be needing to buy that die. Hugs Mrs A.

  16. You already know how much I love this card Liz - wink :) That die is so versatile - also really good for Christmas cards I've found. Enjoy!
