Last night, the girls, their mom and I were standing around talking about my upcoming trip to Papertrix in Indiana. Well, Judy is not a paper crafter at all, so I was trying convince her that this store was worth the five hour drive and telling her about the great selection of stamps that they have and how the stamps are not the stuff that you can find in the big box stores. She mentioned she needed some Thank You notes and wondered if I might be able to find Thank You in Asian characters when I go. I told her that I could find one in my craft room because I knew I had this stamp from Stampendous! Oh the joys of having just the right stamp when you need it. These are business related thanks you cards, so I kept them fairly simple. I stamped with Versa-mark and embossed the image with black embossing powder. I decided to do a little something different with the brads so I made these two trios. Thanks again to my mom, I have a couple of little pots of gold powder that I have no idea what the original purpose was, but I have found that I run the edge of my paper over the Versa-mark pad that it adds a nice touch on the edge of layers. All in all, a pretty simple card, and it fit the Ways to Use It challenge-- to use black. I ended up making a couple of different versions, but they are all pretty much the same, just a couple of slight changes from card to card. Thanks for stopping by today!
