Thank You set challenge

The last Papertrey Playhouse challenge was to create Thank You cards or even a set of them.  While poking around it dawned on me I'd done exactly that.  Only it was a month or so ago.  But since they fit the challenge & I never posted about them I'm submitting them for the challenge!

I created these Thank You's to send to the companies and special people I worked with when I was repping to thank them for the opportunity to work with them.  I had a basic design in mind but allowed myself to play a little bit with it.
I started with a kraft cardstock base - I cut them so I had both a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 and a 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 orientation.  That allowed me to use both frames in the PTI Framed set and vary the orientation of the sentiments.  I used the "thanks so much" sentiment from the Mega Mixed Messages set in the opening of the frame.

A variety of my patterned paper scraps where cut to fit inside the frame and then butterflies were cut out of contrasting solid cardstock using PTI & Spellbinders dies.  A stick pin was inserted thru the bodies for some interest.

Somehow I made to many of them so I created two different sets and have made them available thru my Etsy shop.  If you'd like to see each card individually please click on Link for my Etsy shop.
