First I cut the stamp shape using the Cricut Artiste cartridge, and stamped on it with Twilight ink.
I used Avonlea patterned paper as a background layer on a Slate cardstock base. I stamped the sentiment with Versamark ink and heat-embossed it with Zing Chestnut embossing powder.
Thanks is in the A Flowering Bunch stamp set, but I masked off the part that said "a bunch" with a sticky note so it just said Thanks. Masking is a great technique that I am still learning how to use!
I used a piece of the Avonlea patterned paper zip strip horizontally to give added dimension.
I cut a few little shapes on the Cricut, with the Artiste cartridge, at 1 to 1-3/4 in complementary colors, and layered them with a small punched circle on top.
A bronze brad matched perfectly and holds them all together. The sheer ribbon bow adds just a little necessary accent.
Thanks for stopping by! I have been working on some thank you cards for a friend's sister, and will post them as soon as we decide which layout she prefers!
