Thanks Card

Hi everyone. My in ter net  is so ver y sl ow! I hope you get the drift from that sentence so I hope it stays on so I can post this card I made for the Altenew Educators "Giving Thanks" Blog Hop & Linky Party +  Giveaway. The theme is to make a card of thanks. So that is what I did.



I stamped around the outside of the white card base with the open hydrangea using black ink to create some design along the edges. The focal panel was done by taking white card stock and then adding two kinds of Washi tape for the background. I did the layered stamping for the hydrangea and  then masked off the blossoms so I could add the layered leaves. The sentiment was stamped on white  in black ink and then fussy cut out and layered to some gold mirror card stock. The last thing added was some black gems with hints of gold glitter in them.


Supplies used:
Altenew Gold Foil Washi Tape
Altenew Deco Lines Washi Tape
Altenew Garden Hydrangea Stamp Set
Gina K. Designs inks and card stock
Crafter's Companion Matt Mirror  card stock
Doodlebug Designs Inc. Beetle Black Glitter Gems
Scotch Double Stick Photo Tape
Crafter's Companion Glue Runner

Thanks always for the wonderful visits and comments. I hope all have a great weekend.

God bless,
Verna
