January 12/10  Gratitude  "Thank You"

Created: January 9, 2010

"Gratitude - Thank You" card
Size: 5"w x 7"h

I received my Asian Embossing folders (set of 8) in record time. I couldn't believe I got them so fast from (only 5 days). I've never had service like that. I can barely get things in Canada like that and there weren't any hidden fees either.

OK so I played with them all and absolutely love them This card uses the Mandarin Screen and the Plum Blossom folders.

I used a light wheat toned cardstock, inking my folder with Perfect medium, running through the Cuttlebug and then thermal embossing with Queen's Gold. The heart is done with the Plum Blossom, inked the folder, with Versafine Imperial Purple and clear embossed. Cut it out big enough to accommodate the ATC I was going to stuff in it. Then marked off my ATC on the back of the heart and applied double sided tape and positioned it on my Mandarin Screen background. Rubber stamped the words "Thank You" (Quietfire Design) using Versafine Toffee and embossing with the Queen's Gold on another piece of the beige cardstock adhering it to the screen background and just under the tip of the heart. I found the Thank you was a bit light so shadowed it with a Plum colored Prisma colored pencil. Mounted all this to a blue Bazzill Bling cardstock and then onto my main deep purple card.


For the ATC:

I scanned the Spellbinders Impressabilities die, manipulated it and then cut it out with my Cricut on Double Sided tape. Applied Perfect Pearls & Ritz Micro Fine Glitter one area at a time. Added some Peel Offs dots, 3 sizes of them, first a large gold, then a smaller black and then the smallest gold, one on top of the other. Never done this before, but I really  like the effect.

Rubber stamped the Quote (Quietfire Design) on a large swirl patterned piece of translucent vellum using Versafine black and clear embossing it. Mounted all this to the blue Bling and the purple cardstock. Added a gold puffy heart (also from Quietfire Design).
