A Mo Manning Thank You Card

Wow! Can you guys believe that Christmas is less than a month away??? I sure can't!! I'm nowhere near ready for it and still have some cards and gifts to make. I don't know how in the world I'll get them all finished in time. I guess I'll just put one foot in front of the other and hope that I get there before time runs out.

Today, I have a card that I made for my daughter-in-law last week. She has been such a sweetheart since I moved down here and has gone out of her way to help not only with the move but also by lending a hand whenever I have needed it. So I wanted to tell her in my own way how much I love her and appreciate everything she does for everybody, myself included.

I used this sweet image by Mo Manning, called Alisa with Roses. I have made a couple of cards with this one before but I think this one is my favorite of the three. I just think this is the sweetest little girl and makes into such a soft and feminine card. 

Here's the inside of the card.

The photo above shows the box/envelope I made to go with the card. I had to improvise a bit because the card is a bit large and quite dimensional with all the flowers on it and I had no cardstock larger than 12"x12" on hand. It turned out quite well though, I think.

Supplies used:

Image - Alisa with Roses by Mo Manning
Copic markers
Sentiment stamp - Studio G (front); TPC Studio (inside)
Martha Stewart Punch Around the Page punch set - Deco Fan
Butterflies - (gold glitter) Martha Stewart Classic Butterfly; (pink) Memory Box Kaleidoscope Butterfly

Cardstock from the DCWV Modern Bouquet stack for the envelope
White Cardstock - Coordinations

Paper, dark pink flower buds and ribbon from my stash

I am entering this card in the following challenges:


This card is a little more frilly than the ones I normally make but I really love this style and will probably make a few more. They allow me to embellish to my heart's content! LOL I hope you enjoyed seeing it.  I'll be back with a new project for WOW! Embossing Powders on Friday and if time permits, I might even have another card for you before then. Thanks for stopping in, have a wonderful week and until next time...

Happy crafting!
