The Thanks Card Band by Frantic Stamper cuts the letters into your card and leaves them attached at the top and bottom leaving unlimited possibilities for designing the card.
I chose to cover the top and bottom of the front of the card with dsp and fill in behind the letters with a piece of light blue vellum.
I'm entering this top card in the following challenges:

In need of a quick thank you card? This die can be cut into a white card, not adding any color to it, and it looks beautiful. But, my nephew who is attending WVU on a scholarship, asked if I would make him some thank you cards to send to the scholarship providers, so here are some that I made using this card band. The WVU colors are blue and yellow.
So, how easy is it to make this card you ask? Follow these few simple steps and your card will be done in 10 or less:
1. Measure your card base to 10" x 5" and fold in half, making the card 5 x 5.
2. Place the Thanks Card Band on the front of the card trying to center it left to right and top to bottom if desired. Tape it in place and run it through your die cutting machine. Placing the tape on both ends of the die will not interfere with the card as these two pieces of card will be discarded.
Put the cover plate on and run through your machine.
It comes out looking like this (minus the throw away pieces):
Adhere a piece of cardstock behind the letters if desired:
3. Your card is done. Decorate and embellish as you wish.
I'll post more thank you cards using other dies tomorrow.
