Thank You Card

TGIF  I know that everyone is getting ready for the weekend.  Lots to do and not enough time to do it.  We have a wedding tonight but tomorrow and Sunday I will be going down to the casino to see Captain Sig and the Hilstrand Brothers.  I am so excited.  I love the Deadliest catch.  I actually got to meet them once so I’m taking the pictures of them and me together and hopefully  I’ll get them to autograph them.  Busy, busy.  So my handmade card today of course has tearing in it.  I think probably about 90% of my cards and ideas has tearing in it.  I love to tear and I love the torn look.  So this stamp came from the set  Measure of a Life from Stampin Up.  I embossed the big stamp with black embossing powder  and layered it with black paper and tore around the edges.  I added the jewel brads on both sides.  Next I embossed the word thanks and layered and tore around that too.  I then added a little black bow (black organdy ribbon).  One of my favorite colors from Stampin Up was Real Red.  I am so bummed that they do not make that color anymore.  I hope you enjoyed my handmade card today.  I love any feedback on any of my cards and ideas.  Have a great weekend!!

  1. WOW!, what a great use of red with that lovely embossing! Tearing is good - I'm rubbish at it!
