A "Thank You" to Linda & Emma Lou at Heartfelt Creations Card

Hello, Girlfriends!  I made a thank you card for Linda and Emma Lou at Heartfelt Creations, and was going to work with Emma Lou at the CKC convention in Louisville, KY, so I just took the card to her.  I didn't have a chance to write anything in it to them, and Emma Lou put it up on the display board in the show.  Here's my "THANK YOU VERY MUCH!" card to these two wonderful ladies!

Green grosgrain ribbon. Another option for coloring is to use a water pen and inkpads on watercolor paper.

Directions:  Stamp sentiments on white scrap cs. Cut out with dies or scissors. Mount on mat, then again if desired using different papers. Set aside. Stamp the iris oval and two more separate irises on white cs. Stamp & cut two more leaves & stem. Cut out the iris oval with scissors leaving 1/4" border around oval line. Color in all irises, stems and leaves with markers. Cut out remaining leaves & irises using dies and scissors. On one stamped iris, cut out only the two top and the center bottom petals. Cut 1" off the short end of a piece of patterned paper (in photo, striped). Layer leaves and other petals with dimensionals to give a 3-D appearance on oval iris. Cut one piece of patterned paper (orange) 4" wide by 5" high. Use corner punch to accent corners. Using largest scalloped oval die, find center of paper and use machine to cut it out. On the back of another piece of subtly-patterned paper (red-orange) trace around the same die on the outside and inside without moving it. Cut out with scissors or hobby knife. Position & glue the red-orange piece over the same cut opening in the (orange) piece. Using the window die, cut one out of another patterned paper (blue bayou). Cut into four even pieces. Attach on all four sides of the orange piece. Cut one strip of another patterned paper (floral) into 6" long x 2" wide. Cut this in half. Glue onto sides of striped paper overlapping striped over floral by 1/2". Cut a piece of green grosgrain ribbon 8" long. Position across the center of the card horizontally over the floral & striped paper. Position the iris oval that is 3-D in the center of the striped paper. Use dimensionals to "pop-up" the frame over the iris oval. Glue small sentiment at center top of the frame. Use embellies on side centers and corners. Apply glue and Flower Soft to "stamen" or fuzzy areas of petals. Let dry. Glue front to card base of white cs. Using the scalloped ovals cut from frames or scraps, position on left side of center inside. Center matted sentiment over smaller oval. Use the four corners cut from the frame die to accent corners of both inside pages. Cut a butterfly using die from floral paper & apply.
