thank you cards


So I've got two cards to share this morning, both using the new PTI Make it Monday "Debossing Stamped Images" challenge.  The top card I tried to do the whole card as a one layer card and messed up both the tree and the sentiment, oops.  So… it's not as flat as Dawn's project, but the leaves still have the debossed look to them.  I tried several different pieces of card stock before settling on this recycled letterpress scrap, so my trick, the thicker the better.  Below is another thank you teacher card and the leaves are hard to tell that they're debossed, but it was a good trick to learn to stamp first and then run through the big shot, a piece of washi tape and I was able to line them up perfectly.   Happy Memorial Day everyone, I'm off to a fun filled day of more laundry then you can image at the Outside Inn.
