Thank you #3


This is my third easy thank you card. I used the blue polka dot and striped paper again, but I turned the stripe horizontally for a different effect. For extra interest I added a score line at the top of the white strip, along with 2 white pearls.

I embossed the Crafty Secret bird with Ranger fine silver embossing powder. You cannot tell it from the picture (it looks brown), but IRL it is beautiful. I then used my Circle Spellbinder die to cut and emboss it. The words Thank You were also stamped and embossed with the same powder. I think next time I will stamp the words and then cut them out with my Oval nestie on white paper. I will also pop the words up with a demensional.

Paper-------------------Neenah white card stock and Hobby Lobby
Spellbinders-----------Circle die
Stamps-----------------Crafty Secrets and Inkadinkado
Embossing power----Ranger Fine Silver embossing powder
Pearls------------------Kaiser Pearls snow
Punch------------------Martha Stewart Lace Punch

I've been enjoying your series of Thank You cards. I love that they look simple and yet have such an elegance about them. The pink and black are gorgeous together, and I love the blue and white together. Thanks for some great ideas for the Thank You cards I need to be doing too.
