Thanks Window Card

If you are looking for Keira's Birthday Blog  Hop, please go HERE.

Many of you know that I broke my right wrist in May.  Since my cast came off, I have been going to physical therapy three times a week.  My time is almost done and I wanted to make a thank you card for the therapists who have helped me get my strength and mobility back.
I found this window card base from Wild Card and sized it to 4.05w x 8.23h.  I rotated it 90 degrees.

I grabbed this "Thanks" from Gypsy Wandering and sized it to 3.80w x 1.71h.  I welded it inside the window.  I copied the "Thanks" to another Layer.

I set up my file to cut two cards at the same time.

I selected a double sided cardstock to cut out the card base.  The inside is a light blue.

Here is Layer 2 on my Gypsy.

I cut out the "Thanks" in maroon cardstock.

I used Martha Stewart Lace Edge punch to create a border on the top of the card.  I used some flower pieces I cut out earlier with my Sizzix die.  I cut out pages from a book and inked the flower layers with Vintage Photo distress ink and fastened the flower together with a brad.

I wanted a semi-manly card as one of the therapists is a man.

I am linking this up at Sheila's BLOG for her Window Card Challenge!
