Mount St. Michel Vintage Look Thank You Card


The same gentleman who requested this French vintage look birthday card also wanted a French thank you card. He specifically wanted something other than Paris. It so happens that the recipients of this card love the Mount St. Michel (obviously, they have good taste!) so I found an old image of same in my collection and used it as the focal point. This is a great image, it's taken from a different direction than you normally see in photos.This card is for a couple. I didn't want it too feminine, but I wanted to keep it special, so I used one of the last of these Fleur de Lis embellishments I picked up in the States in November. I'm so wishing I'd bought more of them.


The sentiment on the front I did on the computer with Script MT Bold font.

Material
Paper—cardstock, The Paper Studio Antiquity Paper Pack, vintage sheet music
Topper—Mount St. Michel image from my collection
Dies—Die-namics photo corners
Embellishments—ribbon, Jolee's Boutique Fleur de Lis
Font—Script MT Bold
