Welcome to Kylie's Monthly International Blog Highlights as we showcase projects with the theme "Thank You". November is thought of as the month of gratitude and being thankful for blessings in our lives. What better way to show that than to create beautiful Thank You cards to send to the people in our lives to let them know we appreciate them.
I love finding new ways to use my stamp sets and dies to create beautiful cards. The Pretty Pumpkins stamp set is traditionally a Fall/Thanksgiving themed set and I really love the fonts for the sentiments in this stamp set. I decided to pair one of the sentiments from this set with the Merriest Frames Hybrid Embossing Folder, which includes dies that coordinate with the embossing folder and the coordinating Merriest Moments stamp set. I love the detail in the embossed die cut and thought it would look pretty as a frame for a thank you card. For my color combination, I chose Fresh Freesia and Basic White with a touch of Silver for a soft and pretty design.

Detailed embossed frame die cut with the Merriest Frames Hybrid Embossing Folder
This card design showcases the detail and versatility of the Merriest Frames Hybrid Embossing Folder. The combination of the embossing folder and the coordinating detailed frame die creates a beautiful frame for the sentiment label. I heat embossed the sentiment with Silver embossing powder to add an elegant touch. To create the flowers, I die cut three of the medium sized detailed flower die cuts from one of the Snowflake Wonder sheets in the spaces in between the snowflakes. This gives the white flowers a pretty shimmer to them. I then cut three of the small die cut flowers from the Fresh Freesia cardstock and attached them to the center of white flowers with Mini Glue Dots. For a touch of bling, I added a large Basic Rhinestone Jewel to the center of each flower and added them to embossed frame with Mini Stampin' Dimensionals. I attached the frame to the card base with Mini Stampin' Dimensionals to pop it up. To finish off the card design, I added a piece of the White Glittered Organdy Ribbon under the top right corner and a pretty bow to the bottom of the frame.
