Pink Lily Embossed Thank You Card

Here's another thank you card using my new Stargazer Salutations Creativity Cardmaking Kit from Altenew. I have really enjoyed playing with this kit the last couple of days. 

For this card, I wanted to use another fun new 3D embossing folder I recently bought from Altenew called From Land to Sea. Since it only embosses a portion of a card panel, I decided to trim the front of the card base to just the portion that is embossed and then I added the lily, 2 clusters of small flowers, and 3 leaves to the front. I also stamped "Thank you" from the stamp set and adhered it with foam tape. 
For the inside of the card, I added a white panel and then adhered another cluster of the small stamped flower grouping from the stamp set. I really like how this card turned out with the trimmed panel in the front that has the flower grouping hanging over slightly.
