Die-cut Rose Thank You Card

Although my mother has been MIA (majonging in afterlife) for many years, as soon as I saw the Little B rose cutting die, I knew it would make a beautiful Mother's Day card (so I had to show it to you).
 Since I didn't need a MD card, I decided to make thank you cards (something that I mail out often) instead. It was really simple to use the die on printed and solid card stock.
I filled in the roses with pink and the leaves with green solid papers.  I added American Crafts 'thank you' ribbon and a Studio G brad. (I love brads and need to use them more often rather than hoarding. LOL! They are such a cool embellishments.)
Here's another version using the same Little B die from HM Ben Franklin Crafts.
Instead of gluing the pieces back into the roses, I filled in the spaces with Stickles glitter glue.
 This is a close-up of the Hero Arts die cut 'thanks' which also shows the embossed detail that the  LB die impresses while it cuts.
These two dies are among my favorites because of the diversity of their uses.  I hope that you will shop at HM Ben Franklin Crafts soon and purchase some of their fabulous crafting supplies. Just think of all the beautiful cards you can create for your mom and anyone you appreciate. Happy Crafting!
