Graceful Cattails Thank You
by Anne

Welcome to our BLOG BLITZ!!!  All week we'll be showcasing the newest of the new products from Memory Box.  And there will be prizes to win by leaving comments on each blog post.  Yahoo!!

For this post I chose the GRACEFUL CATTAILS die 99574 and partnered it with "THANK YOU" from the THANK YOU set of 6 dies number 30084.


I cut both the Graceful Cattails and the Thank You in the front of a Vanilla Bean notecard.  I backed the cattails with a scrap of "vintage" Memory Box Halloween paper.  (I can't believe this is the last piece I have in my stash!)  I cut the cattails again in gold cardstock and layered in just the moon pieces.  I backed the Thank You with more of the gold paper and added in the tiny pieces for the centers of the A and the O.  


And because you know I never post just one card, I made a second thank you card that features the GRACEFUL STAG COLLAGE die 99604.  (Be sure to read Laura's post from this morning which also features this die--a comment on her post and you might win the Graceful Stag Collage!)  I cut the Graceful Stag Collage from black cardstock and mounted it to the front of the white notecard.  I then cut the Thank You into the card front and backed it with black cardstock, adding the white pieces for the centers of the A and O.


These are the perfect cards for outdoorsy folks, guys or gals!!!  Be sure to leave me a comment for your chance to win the GRACEFUL CATTAILS die!  You will have until 11:00 PM on Sunday the 25th.  Winners chosen from comments on each post will be announced on the blog on Monday the 26th.  And be sure to check back each day, twice a day, for more projects from this latest Memory Box release!

Happy Crafting!
