Congrats – the Floral Thinlits are amazing!

I’m still on an amazing high as I work my way through my new products and revel in their loveliness.

Today’s share is a quick ‘congrats’ card I made last night to go with a voucher I was posting.


The Detailed Floral Thinlits are simply stunning and do all the talking – you don’t need much else to jazz it up (though I couldn’t resist some of my favourite twine & pearls).

I’ve cut it twice along the piece of Dapper Denim cardstock for this DL size card – once on the left side & once on the right.  I then fussy cut (trimmed) around the bottom edge to neaten up the final design.

One of the surprise loves for me this catalogue has been the Sunshine Wishes Thinlits set.  It went on & off my list so many times I’m amazed it ended up making it to the order (tough competition in such a great catalogue).  But I’m so glad it did!

The set is a combination of words (hope, love, congrats, sunshine) and images (flower, butterfly, heart).  I can see many applications for this set.  Plus, it’s got a coordinating stamp set too (Sunshine Sayings) – matchy matchy = papercraft love!!!

  1. Kelly, love this size card! I can not figure out how you got the long piece die cut though. Can you please share how you did this? Thank you! Sherry

  2. Hi Sherry – thanks so much! I cut the cardstock and with the cardstock in landscape, ran the die through lined up with the left edge. I then ran it through a second time with the die lined up at the right side. Where it overlapped, I trimmed the flowers/gaps (particularly on the bottom edge and at the join) until it looked like one cohesive piece. Hope this makes sense! Kelly x

    1. You are definitely skilled with die cuts! I’m definitely giving it a try. I really like trying to make different size cards other than the standard 4 1/4 x 5 1/2. Thank you for such a quick response!
