Thank You Card

Cards

Another card to share today, this time a thank you card.

I love this background stamp from Hero Arts and decided to spice it up a little bit by heat embossing with a glittery gold!

To tone down the shiny I used shades of red for the sentiment. The “Thank You” sentiment is stamped in red ink, then heat embossed with clear embossing powder. I left heat on the embossing powder longer than normal to give the finish a matte look instead of the shiny finish you typically get from heat embossing. This matte finish on the red cardstock makes a nice juxtaposition against the glittery background.

This was a nice, simple project for a card in a hurry. I will definitely be using this great background stamp again!
