For Your Thoughtfulness, Thanks!!

Hello!!  It's Wanda here today.  I hope you had a good weekend and your week goes great!!!  On today's card I've used a die, a stamp, and a napkin for the background.  I've also used part of the packaging (the pink, glittery, thin cardboard) from a gift I received from one of the little girls I watch in the nursery at church on Sunday mornings.  This thank you card is for her.  

Let's get started!!

1. Cut white cardstock 4 1/8" x 5 3/8".  Separate the layers of the napkin so you only have the top, printed layer and cut out the area you want to use a little larger than the cardstock. Brush Fluid Matte Medium over cardstock, lay napkin carefully over medium, brush medium over napkin and leave to dry.  Once dry, trim off extra napkin from edges.

2. Sponge Snow Cap over lower area of napkin panel where the die cut will be, dry.  Ink edges of panel with Vintage Photo, dry.  Sponge Tea Dye over white ink, dry.  Stamp "for your thoughtfulness" with Jet Black Ink.  Brush Wink of Stella on edges. 

3.  Die cut Thanks from the pink, glittery packaging material and from a Silver Deco Sheet. Use Gel Medium to glue the pink thanks to the silver thanks.  Peel off liner from the silver thanks and stick to panel.  Add black along the die cut with pen. 

4. Cut white cardstock 5 1/2" x 8 1/2".  Fold to make a card 4 1/4" x 5 1/2".  Attach panel to card.  

I hope you like this card and that you inspired to create something!!!
