Thank you - Craftaholics R Us-43

Wednesday November 1, 2017
 
Well as of today.. I have been retired one year.. I have loved all 365 days of it and looking forward to many many more years..
 
It's time for another challenge at Craftaholics R Us #43 
 and the Green team has chosen 
 THANK YOU as the theme.
 
 
This was fun to create.. I took some dark navy blue card stock 4.25 x 5.5 and using a Paper Trey Ink stamp I stamped the border over the blue paper.. with it being so hard to see using Versa Mark (the other side is really bad. I tried to butt them next to each other) I left a gap and figured I would fix it somehow when I was done.. I then used silver embossing powder from Stampin Up and heat embossed. Well that blue gap didn't look very good so I took my Kuretake White Gold paint and painted the strip between the stamp design. I liked it. I then stamped on Vellum the Thank you from PTI and heat embossed with Black from stampin up.. I added some half pearls and added the completed card from to a white card base. This is really pretty in real life.  I hope I have inspired you to grab a thank you, thanks a bunch, so thankful for you.. I know there are more sentiments that will work.. Just have fun and play along.

 
This is the side view showing the design and the painted strip between the stamped design.

Hi Billie! I just know that this card in person is a real showstopper! The pretty little pearls are the perfect touch too. Thanks so much for joining my Attitude of Gratitude Blog Challenge :)
