Summer Florals Thanks Pop 'n Cuts card

I'm still hobbling round (aching horribly!) after taking part in our church's area Athletics competition on Saturday... why I thought it would be a good idea to take part in virtually ALL the events, with no training (and in sweltering heat), I don't know! Anyway, I have a few cards to make this week, including some Thank You cards for women who I have worked with in the Youth Programme of our church, but whose roles have recently changed.
I've been privileged to work with some really wonderful people, and wanted to express my thanks to them.
I used Karen Burniston's Square Card with Ornate Edges Pop 'n Cuts base, with the Thanks insert, and used the Sizzlits Thanks set to decorate it.
I added an extra pop-up part on the shelf above the 'Thanks', to bring one of the flowers more forward.
The lovely green trim is from Eileen Hull's Hydrangeas and Borders Biz die.
For the card front, I used the scrolly piece from the Square Pop 'n Cuts base die, the Library Card Pocket (old red Sizzix die), and a hand-cut arrow. 
 I wanted the library pocket on there so I could add a little note.
 The flowers are from Brenda Walton's Summer Florals Sizzlit strip, and I used papers from Basic Grey's Kneehighs 6x6 pad.

Products used:



  1. You are wonderful. Thanks. (See what I did there?) Seriously, though, you are amazing. Sorry about the aches, though. This is why I find it important never to exert myself. Heh.

    1. Thanks Karen! Lesson learnt... will stick to rolling my Sizzix machine handle from now on.

  2. Hi Helen, what an absolute stunner of a card, I love how summery it feels - gorgeous! I adore Karen's dies.

  3. wow. Your cards are all wonderfull !!!
