Above & Beyond Thank You

Detailed edging created with the Essentials Paper-Piercing Pack, Paper-Piercing Tool, and Pierce Mat
I thought my new Elegant Butterfly punch went so well with my above & beyond sentiment.  It just seemed to be the right finishing touch for my thank you card.

Not every card has to have a lot of layers, and I liked the addition of just a small piece of ribbon, designer paper, and punched cardstock to create my card front.  Along with the stamped tiny flowers and sentiment, I knew the card needed just a bit more, so in addition to my punched butterfly, I added some embellishment to the side edge of the card by piercing holes using the new Essentials Paper-Piercing Pack.  This new tool comes with 3 templates and it also coordinates with punches. edgelits, and framelits.  But, as you can see on my card, I used it by itself, and if you don't have the coordinating products it still adds a nice touch to your project.

The inside sentiment says  ...that's where you always seem to go!  thanks so much.  It is from the One in a Million stamp set, which gives you sayings not only for the front of the card, but the inside too.
