Paper Dolls Challenge #34
Okay so I'm a month behind on this challenge. Yes, I know there really is no time limit but I told myself that I would get each Paper Dolls challenge done within the first month. I'm already falling behind.
This is for Cecilia's gratitude challenge. You can read about it HERE. Basically we are to create a simple thank you card and use a background stamp.
I chose to stamp the large flower from the 2008 PTI anniversary set Everyday Classics as my background image. I also wanted to have the bright Springy color of New Leaf included so I used it as my card base and for the leaf die cut. This is a Sizzix die that I really love.
I stamped an image from Mat Stack 2 on the Mat Stack 1 die cut. I didn't intend for the image to turn out like that but I liked the look of my mistake:) I first stamped the image in versamark and then New Leaf ink because I wanted to emboss the frame. Well, it didn't work, but I was left with a cool looking distressed frame. I added a little flower gem from Michael's and some lace trim to finish off the card front.
Since I needed to make a thank you card to go along with a gift card I was giving, I just turned this card into a gift card holder by creating a little pocket from a leftover piece of the background paper. Here's the inside:
