Thank You Blocks!

Good Morning and welcome March! We have had sunshine over the weekend with some almost spring like weather - lets hope it continues!

Challenge 9 starts over at Jan's Digital Stamps Challenge today and my inspiration is using one of her new collections, Block Sentiments. This is a great set with a number of sentiments all available in pre-colored bright or pastel and line art. My card is using the pastel pre-colored thank you:

What I Did:
I resized and printed 2 copies of the image, fussy cut one of them and cut alternate letters from the other one. I then cut a panel from the front of an 8x8in card base. I discarded this just keeping the top part (still attached to the card) and 2in from the bottom, making sure my Thank You image would fit between these. I matted both of these with blue card and coordinating design paper. I then applied glue to the top and bottom of my image, First adhering it to the bottom section of the card front and then adding it to the remaining top section of the card.
I realized at this point that the image wasn't sturdy enough to hold up so I added some of the cut away cardstock to the back of the Thank You to strengthen it. I added the letters I had cut individually on top of the ones on the image with foam pads to add further dimension.
To finish the card I added the same blue card to the inside so it gave contrast where it showed through either side of the image.

What I Used:

I just love this card layout with the letters holding the 2 parts of the card front together. The dimension with the popped up letters is great! Fun and creative design!
