Merci (Thank You) Card With Rose Die Cut

Remember this craft stash addition post? I used the rose die shown there to create this card. I have to admit, I don't know if I'll be using it again. Although I do like the end result, it took a lot of piecing together to get a look I liked. 

I used some other hither to unused/rarely used stash items on this card. I've had the no-brand tag die for ages and I think this is the first time I've used it. I have a pack of these little dotted frames and never used them. The dried leaves were something I used to use a lot (e.g. this autumn card), but got away from and the mesh behind the tag I've had a roll of forever and a day and never used. The paper is retired Folia.  The merci embellishment is from a pack I've been hoarding because I really like this embellishment and don't want to run out. I've used it painted black on this Country Music Chick card and au naturel on this Masculine Wine Tag (which I made in 2014 and still have because I like it too much to give away). The little 'dew' drops on the rose are a new addition. 

Supply List
Paper – cardstock, Folia paper
Dies – no-brand rose, tag and border
Embellishments – wooden frame, dried leaves, twine, mesh, 'dew' drops, merci

  2. Shani what a beautiful card. I love the layout of it and the use of the frame and the skeleton leaves. Thank you for joining our challenge at Bizzy Bec's and good luck with your entry. Gail DT

  3. So pretty! I kwym about piecing those can get frustrating! Always nice to use that little used/unused stash, isn't it? I always think of it as an accomplishment...and that's one less thing 'I've never used' so I don't have to feel as guilty about buying new stuff - ha!
