Thank You, Thank You, Thank You

Here we have three thank you cards.  This first card features patterned paper that came in my Cardmaking and Paper Crafting subscription. The focal was made with glossy card stock, alcohol inks, cut with JustRite's "Nested Oval Medallion" die & stamped with their "With Sympathy" stamp for the frame and HOTP's "Roses Small Stamp" before being heat embossed with black powder.  The sentiment was cut with a Spellbinder's Die and decorated with Dazzles.

The patterned paper for this card also came with my Cardmaking & Papercraft magazine.   Here it is paired with a coral colored card and some coordinating satin ribbon.  The focal was created by embossing a piece of card stock with a metal stencil & then stenciling it with dimensional paint.  I then fussy cut around it before adding it to the card front with dimensional tape.

This final card uses a couple of purchased die cuts (HOTP) with scraps from one of their patterned papers.  If you look closely at the top of the card you see that the patterned paper has a "v" cut in it.  That was the way the scrap was when I found it and I decided I liked it that way! :)
