Blessed to Know You Cards

I'm back with more thank you/friendship cards today for some special friends! For my recent birthday, one of them gave me a Hobby Lobby gift card, one gave me some tea and a lovely mug, and one gave me some stamps and dies! They know me so well! Tea and craft supplies are always my favorite gifts!

I love the stamp and die set from Papertrey Ink called "Enclosed Butterfly." It has two layers: a solid die cut for the base and an outline of the butterfly with the word "Blessed" attached to the two sides. It's so pretty! The coordinating stamps have sentiments that go with the word "Blessed" as well as some stamps to decorate the butterfly. I chose "I'm so" and "to know you" to stamp on the butterfly. 

For all three cards, I chose a few pink pattern papers for the butterfly dies. For the first two cards, I then die cut and embossed a Spellbinders die out of the pink sunflower background paper. One card has some pretty pink pattern paper behind the Spellbinders die cut, and the other was embosses using a dots EF on the white card base. The third card includes a CTMH stamp for the calligraphy "Friend" sentiment and a SU! die from the Fond of Autumn bundle between the top and bottom die cuts. I embossed that one with an EF with a pattern of roses. 

Close up to see the details on the die cut and the embossing behind it:
