Supplies Used:
Paper:  Graphic 45 Pattern Paper - cut 1/8" smaller than the card blank front 4 1/4" x 5 1/4
            Card Blank-Kraft Color, Black
                 1- 8 1/2 x11 piece of kraft cardstock cut horizontally to make two card blanks
                  1  6x6 piece of black and 1 6x6 piece of kraft cardstock to cut with the Cricut Machine.

Computer printed Thank you (used the software MS Word)
Pearl for center

Fold your cardstock in half, and lay to the side. Take the lace and ink it up lightly to mimic an antique look. set to the side.   Optional:  You can also ink up the edges of either the card blank or the mat with the same ink to give it an older look.   I did not do it on this card, because I was in a hurry that day.  Cut out the flower with the machine and cartridge as directed  ( I cut it at 3".   I used shadow and Layer 1).  Note:  If you do not have a cricut machine, or the cartridge, you can substitute the flower with the type of machine you are using- electronic or non-electronic, as well as the cartridge you have.   This is an very flexible card.  Finally, I printed and matted the "thank you" phrase and placed the pearl in the center of the card.
