Day 1- Quietfire Die-ing for Spring Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Quietfire Design Die-ing for Spring Blog Hop!

For my project I wanted to use the new Quietfire Design "Thanks" die on the front of my card.  The inside I planned on using a stamp from the newly released Quietfire Design set, Thanks Cuddlers.  The stamp set is so cute that I could not decide which sentiment(s) to use.  After much thought and playing in the craftroom, the idea evolved into a Thanks gift card set.  

Here is the front of the gift card package.  The "Thanks" die is the showpiece on top of the Graphic 45 Time to Flourish collection.  Stickles was added to the die cut (the photo does not do it justice!).
The inside contains more of the pretty papers on the top and there is a large pocket that holds five Thank you cards with envelopes.
A closer look at the pocket with cards/envelopes:
Each card uses the "Thanks" stamp on the outside...
...and a different sentiment inside:
Card 2:
Card 2 inside:
Card 3:
Card 3 inside:
Card 4:
Card 4 inside:
Card 5:
Card 5 inside:
I could have really blinged up the cards and added lovely layers but I wanted to make sure that the cards were easily mailable for the gift card pack recipient.  

Here is another look at the outside.  
And inside:
I hope whoever receives it will enjoy it as much as I enjoyed making it. :)
