I have recently purchased the Very Versailles stamp set and have not had a chance to use it until now. I have created a simple Thank You card for someone special.

I used a Balmy Blue card base measuring 21cm x 10.5 cm scored and folded in half. I then cut another measuring 10cm x 14.4cm and glued this to the base.
I cut a piece of Pacific point to 10.5cm x 8cm.

I then created the Balmy Blue frame using the Heirloom Frames Dies and 3D embossing folder.

I cut a pice of Whisper White card stock to 7cm x 9.5cm and ran it through my Big Shot™ using the Subtle Dynamic Textured Embossing Folder. Then popped the Frame over this piece using dimensionals. Then attached the Pacific Point layer to the base using more dimensionals.

I stamped the image behind the sentiment in Pacific Blue on Whisper white and fussy cut it out. I popped this up on dimensionals on the Whisper White layer.

I stamped the sentiment in Merry Merlot on Whisper White and cut it out with the Stitched Label Die small stitched circle. I also cut a piece of Pear Pizazz using a small layering circle die. I glued these two layers together and adhered to the Pacific Point image layer.
