Luxe Peony Pinpoint Burst Heart Thank You Notes
by Anne Thompson

'Tis the season for writing a stack of thank you notes.  I chose a simple composition featuring a Luxe peony on a Pinpoint Burst Heart for the first few I need.  Here are two of them.


  • I started with a white notecard and a green plaid from SPRING PLAID PP1012 cut 5 1/4 X 4.
  • I added the PINPOINT BURST HEART 94639 cut with gold mirror card from VINTAGE PASTEL MIRROR PAD FP1002, secured with Scor-Tape.


  • My next step was to choose two sheets of red plaid paper from JOLLY CHRISTMAS PP1019 for the LUXE PEONY 94714 and the THANK YOU POSH SCRIPT 94529.  I cut the peony several times from both sides of the plaid paper so I could mix the two papers.  I cut the background for the Thank You from the scraps left of the darker red plaid and the more detailed lettering from the lighter paper scraps.  I assembled the flowers with Glue Dots (and have tucked away a couple more for cards I'll make later) and I put the sentiments together with a Glue Pen.


  • I wanted larger leaves than came with the peony so chose the larger set of leaves from the EXQUISITE LEAF SET 94664 and cut them from a darker green cardstock from the LUSH GREEN COLLECTION SP1003.


  • For the final assembly, I added the leaf sprig with Glue Dots under a couple of the leaves and added the single leaf with another Glue Dot off to the bottom left corner.
  • I used a large circular dimensional foam dot behind the center of the peony to add it to the heart.
  • I used a Glue Pen to add the sentiment in the lower right.


This design would also work for a valentine, a wedding card, a birthday, or any other number of occasions.  And the color combinations are endless!

Happy Crafting!
