Thank You Card

I have used some of this weeks set of premium papers from Free Craft Downloads  to make my Thank You card
This is a very large set of papers available as a zip file which can be found on the Modern flowers premium set posting in the forum on Free Craft Downloads or if you prefer you can browse through the general papers via the link in the same forum posting

To make the card I used
modern flowers 2 light  printed on an A5 sheet of paper
mod striped 3  printed on an A5 sheet of paper
decoupage modern flowers  2 sets printed on A5 size glossy photo paper
 1 5x7 size Cream Blank greeting card
4 small strips of green ribbon
1 Silver Thank You peel off
Silver border peel offs
Double sided tape
Silicone glue
4 small amber coloured gems

I used the 5x7 size card cut a strip (approx 3.5 cm) from the right hand edge on the front only
I covered the front of the card with the flower paper and trimmed the edges
I cut a strip from the striped paper and stuck it to the outside edge of the card

I cut out and assembled one sheet of the decoupage flowers and I cut out a vase shape from the striped paper

The 2nd set of decoupage flowers I cut out the complete flower only to use and added an amber coloured gem to the centre of each flower

These flowers I stuck down the Stripe on the inside of the card

Leaving the top part unstuck I stuck the vase shape in the centre near the bottom 

I stuck 4 different lengths of thin green ribbon from under the vase then stuck down the top of the vase
I stuck on the decoupaged flowers at the top of the strips of ribbon

I hope you like this finished card  The set of premium papers can be used for Mothers day cards but having just lost my Mum I couldn't bring myself to make a Mothers day card so chose to make a Thank you card instead  hopefully showing that the papers can be used for one of several different occasions
