I made this very special thank you card for Jogry and Neil to express my great appreciation for their very warm hospitality. They have such a lovely and beautiful home with the beach practically in their backyard. More than the beauty and comfort of their beautiful home, I enjoyed the company of my new friends who are truly one of the nicest and most endearing couples that I've met. I included some photos below of Jogry and Neil along with their beautiful home. You will see the beautiful craft room of Jogry which was lovingly built by Neil. He also made all the shelves, cabinets and various organizers for Jogry's crafting supplies.
This card has so many layers of designs starting from the window and the shutters down to the fence and flower box enhanced with the curtains and valence. All these are included in my free file along with the 2 sentiments that I created for two different occasions with the overlapping frame. The mat layer for the framed sentiment as well as the vine over the window and shutters are from the Silhouette store. And, yes, the box is included in the free file. The flourish and the frame for Jogry and Neil's name used on the box are also from the Silhouette store so they are not included in the file.
Designs from the Silhouette store:
Vine - Vine Corner
Mat for framed sentiment - Artisans Nesting Rectangular
Flourish on the box - Flourish (sorry, that's simply the name shown in the store)
Tag/Frame on the box - Decorative Rectangle Frame
I used a lot of my DIY dimensional foam tape for the 3D effect of this card. I used layers of it to allow for the depth of the fence to give way for the flowers in the flower box.
