Gold Lace Leaf Thank You


Hello everyone,
So it is no big secret that I adore anything Concord & 9th comes out with.  With that being said, this beautiful stamp set, Lace Leaf, is one of my favorite.  My mom asked me to make a Thank you card for her and this set came to mind immediately. I started by die cutting a panel of Neenah Solar White 80 lb card stock with the largest stitched rectangle die from Kat Scrappiness and then stamping my leaf image with Tsukineko Brilliance Galaxy Gold Dew Drop ink and it was everything I was hoping it would be.  I stamped the Thank You sentiment from the MMH July 2017 Hero Arts kit, it is such a pretty font and perfect for this image.  I wanted to keep this card simple so I took some gold embroidery thread and wrapped it around my white card stock a few times and secured it on the back with some tape, then I laid the white panel onto a black 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 piece of black card stock and then put that onto an A2 sized, side folding, white card base.  To finish it off I used some Studio Katie mixed sized Sparkling Crystals scattered on the leaf image.
Hope you have enjoyed this card, see you soon!
Close Up, aren't those sparkling crystals pretty with the gold ink?
