Thanks for all you do


Hello!!!  It's Wanda here today to share a couple of cards.

This is a really quick card and you can change the feel just by using different stencils and colors so if you need some thank you cards during the busy holiday season, these would work great!!!  

I went with bright fall colors and a leaf on this card.  I taped the stencil (TCW) to soft finish cardstock (Elizabeth Craft Designs) with removable tape putting extra tape anywhere I was concerned that I might get ink on the cardstock where I didn't want it, applied Distress Inks (mowed lawn, carved pumpkin, barn door, picked raspberry) with a mini ink blending tool, dried it, stamped the words (Thanks Cuddlers Set) with Archival Ink jet black, dried them, and roughed up the edges using a Distress tool.  For the next layer I used a piece of soft finish cardstock, embossed it using the Dot Matrix folder, inked around the edges with the same colors of Distress Ink as used on the leaf, and distressed the edges.  I attached the two layers together, wrapped a piece of twine around them, and attached the piece to a folded white card. 




Here is another card.  Distress Inks through a stencil (TCW) for the ornaments and then I used a white paint marker to add the dots to the hangers making it really look like links.  Distress Ink and a water brush were used to splatter the background.  Thanks is stamped with jet black ink.  A Zig pen was used for the doodling around the edge.  The main panel is attached to a red panel and then to a folded white card.
