Ornate Pierced Rectangles Thank You

I'm still playing with the Sue Wilson Ornate Pierced Rectangles dies; they are just too pretty to put down.  For today's card, I cut the dies using a dark blue glitter cardstock I had in my stash, along with some white cardstock.

To make the card base, since this is a large die, I folded a 12x12 piece of white cardstock in half, adhered the blue background then cut around the edges of the blue to make it a shaped card.  The finished size of this card is 5.5 x 7".  The card fits into an envelope that I get at JoAnn Fabric in the wedding department.  When the store puts boxes of wedding invitations on clearance every now and then, I pick up a few boxes to use the large envelopes that come inside.  Normally I get a box of 50 wedding invites and envelopes for around $3.00.

This is a close-up of the flower:

Here is a list of products I used to make today's card:
