We had a fabulous Christmas, but there hasn't been a spare moment to sneak away and stamp. So late last night, I made a quick no-frills card with the sketch. 'Tis officially the season for thank you cards now, so I pulled out an old favorite... You and I and the coordinating I Heart U Die Set and some vintage papers and got to work making a thank you card.
Most of the papers come from the Antique Lost & Found pad by My Mind's Eye. The red polka dot paper is from my scrap pile (originally from some Christmas pad, I'm sure). I inked up the edges of each panel with pumice stone distress in, hand cut the banners, then cut the U from the I Heart U Die Set and embossed the thank sentiment from You and I in white. To make it not so stark, I colored lightly with a copic marker. The red heart is a wood veneer that I covered with the same paper as the hand trimmed banner. I finished off with some liquid pearl accents around the circle mat.
Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you have a wonderful last few days of 2014!
