Heartfelt Thanks

This is another card that doesn't show as well in the picture as it does in real life. (And I REALLY shouldn't have taken the picture against a white background as you can't see where the card ends and the background begins!)  Anyway, here's how I made it:

Focal: Glossy card stock was colored with alcohol inks and then cut with a JustRite "Vintage Labels Two" die. It was stamped with a stamp from JustRite "Grateful Heart Vintage Labels Two" stamp set and the sentiment was stamped using a stamp from JustRite "Fancy Tags" stamp set.  All were heat embossed with black embossing powder.  The focal was then attached to the mat using dimensional tape.

Mat: The mat was cut with a die from Spellbinders "Resplendent Rectangles" set.  It was embellished with silver outline stickers.

Background: The paper for this background once again came from the DCWV "All Dressed Up" matstack.  The paper is really more like card stock and I made use of the stability of it to pop the whole piece up with dimensional tape.  This left a narrow white margin of the base card all the way around the whole.  However, the sides had a wider margin than the top & bottom, so I added Dazzles thin line silver stickers along each side to complete the look.
