Thankful Expression Thinlits Die

I finally got around to using my Expression Thinlits Dies.  I had no problem getting the thin lettering out of the Framelit but if you find out that your machine cuts a bit differently, try a piece of wax paper first, then your card stock and it should come out easily each time.  

My card base is Baked Brown Sugar Card Stock  with a layer of Bermuda Bay and Very Vanilla.  I also used my new Pretty Print Textured Impressions Embossing Folder to the Very Vanilla layer and love the way the random lettering adds a nice accent to this layer.  I also added a piece of Baked Brown Sugar 3/8" Ruffle Stretch Trim and my two Bees.  Yes my bees are an odd color for bees, but on hand stamped cards I feel you are free to get creative!

To adhere my thankful sentiment I used my 2-Way Glue Pen.  A few dots of this strong adhesive and it stayed perfectly in place.

The following were used:
Card Stock:  Baked Brown Sugar #131296, Bermuda Bay #131197, Very Vanilla #101650
Ink:  Bermuda Bay #131171
