thank you my friend

Hey everybody! A very Happy Tuesday to you all! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you – I really appreciate your support! I’ve popped back in this morning with my second post of the day – a pretty thank you card I created for The Outlawz March Freebie/Progressive Challenge. Our sponsor this month is Moonflower Digistamps who gifted us with the gorgeous Lust digital image to create with. It seems 3-D embossing folders are the rage right now and I recently added three of them to my stash, so I used one of the geometric ones for the background on this card. All I can say is WOW, it’s definitely 3-D and now I can’t wait to use the other two I got! ;)

I printed the digital image on CutCardStock Basis 80# White cardstock, colored her with alcohol markers, fussy cut her and ran a Memento Tuxedo Black marker around the outside edge for a more finished look. I added Clear Star shimmer and Ranger Glossy Accents to the jewel on the front of her dress, and colored the strands of pearls with a White pen. I then cut a standard A2 size top-folding card base from CutCardStock Basis 110# White cardstock along with a layering panel from CutCardStock Pop-Tone Black Licorice cardstock which I adhered to the card base. I printed the digital image a second time on CutCardStock Basis Medium Blue, cut it with a My Favorite Things Wonky Stitched Rectangle STAX Die-namics and then ran it through the Big Shot in a We R Memory Keepers Geometric Embossing Folder. I adhered the panel to the card front and then adhered the fussy-cut image over the printed image on the embossed background on dimensional foam pads. I stamped the sentiment from the Waffle Flower Sentiment Additions stamp set on a scrap piece of 80# Basis White cardstock in Catherine Pooler Stone Blue ink and cut it with the coordinating Waffle Flower Sentiment Additions die set, and adhered it to the top of the front panel. The finishing touch was the addition of several small white pearls across the bottom.

I cut the inside panel from CutCardStock Basis 80# White cardstock and embellished it with strips of CutCardStock Basis Medium Blue and CutCardStock Pop-Tone Black Licorice cardstock. I stamped another sentiment from the Waffle Flower Sentiment Additions stamp set on a scrap piece of 80# Basis White cardstock in Catherine Pooler Stone Blue ink. I cut it with the coordinating Waffle Flower Sentiment Additions die set, adhered it to the panel, and then layered the panel on black cardstock.

And one more peek… such a pretty thank you card with an absolutely gorgeous image! And that embossed background! ;)

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D
