Layered Labels - Simple but Classy!

Classy Thank You!

I just love this Thank You card.  It is simple yet very classy.

To create this card I started with Always Artichoke
card stock cut to the standard size base of 5.5" x 8.5" folded in half.

The second layer is cut 5.25" x 4" from Sahara Sand card stock.

The third layer is cut 5" x 3.75" from a piece of Always Artichoke Designer Series Paper.

I set these pieces aside for a while and grabbed a piece of Sahara Sand card stock.  I then used the largest stamp from the Layered Labels stamp set and stamped the image onto the Sahara Sand card stock with Always Artichoke Classic Stampin' Pad.  Using my Big Shot (the most awesome machine ever) I ran the stamped Sahara Sand card stock along with the coordinating Framelit from the Apothecary Accents set through.  The Big Shot cuts the image out with crisp clean lines!!!  I love it!

Because I needed a Thank You card I decided to add another layer.
I took one of the stamps from the Four Frames stamp set and stamped it onto a piece of Always Artichoke card stock with a Always Artichoke Classic Stampin' Pad.
The Four Frames stamps have enough space inside the stamp to add a sentiment.
I used the "Thanks so Much" stamp from my Six-Sided Sampler stamp set...again using the Always Artichoke Classic Stampin' fit just perfect!  Punch this image out with the Decorative Label punch.

Now you are ready to begin assembling your layers!!  This is the exciting part:)  I love seeing how the layers I've created come to together!  Assemble the first three layers one on top the other ...making sure they are straight and square.  To add dimension and a little interest use Stampin' Dimensionals to raise the last layer off the card a little.

Add a little bling and WOW...look at this awesome card!!  Simply but Classy!
