|Thank You Card with Concord & 9th Images|
My card size is 5.5" square so I start with a top folding card base of white cardstock, 5.5" x 11", scored at 5.5". To this I adhered a piece of 5.5" x 5.5" scrapbook paper with a blue pattern on it.
I wanted some dimension to the card but did not want to use foam dots. So I cut a piece of blue fun foam, 4.75" square, and adhered it with double sided tape to a piece of blue textured cardstock, also 4.75" square. (I learned this trick from Jennifer McGuire and it really is so much better than using pop dots.) Then I adhered this to the card front.
Then I cut a piece of kraft cardstock, 4.5" x 4.5", and stamped the Tree Ring stamp in the center with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.
Now...because I wanted to stamp the "thank you" over the Tree Ring image and I wanted it to really stand out and show, I pulled out my Misti, placed the kraft cardstock down and then stamped the Painted Thank You image 3 times with Cobalt Archival Ink. Then I added a platinum eyelet in each corner and adhered this piece to the center of the dark blue cardstock. Done!
