I got my thank yous made today - one more for a Christmas gift and four for birthday gifts. The Christmas one I made today was the same as the one I made yesterday. That helped!
For this one, I started with a Quickutz die. (Nameplate - Rev-0220.) I stamped the sentiment (from Verve, again) and the daisies (from Repeat Impressions) and added the brads. The line of embossed daisies is done with a Cuttlebug border folder and the bottom is embossed with a Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder. I did the coloring with Copic markers. (I got some from our son and daughter-in-law for Christmas and more that are not here yet for my birthday!) The matting on both the Nameplate and the embossed layer is black.
For this one, I started with a piece of acetate. I used white embossing paste and a brass stencil for the Thank Yous. I mounted the acetate on a piece of blue cardstock and then on to white, and added white brads. The background was embossed with a Cuttlebug folder. (There appears to be some white underneath the embossing paste, but it must be a trick of the lighting. It really is just plain blue.)
Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!
