Wedding Thank You Card







Here is a nice way to  make an easy Thank You card, but great effect!  It's a combination of:
      #1) a great background stamp or better yet, two!.....and
#2) an Embosslit Die

This card has 2 Background (over-sized) stamps - one directly over the other.
The Medallion background stamp first. Slightly off-side.  It's done in the  'stamp off ' method by not stamping in full-strength ink but by stamping first somewhere else ( say on another white cardstock to use later - or- onto scrap paper, paper towel, etc), then stamping it directly  to the white cardstock to get the "softer" look which in this case, will become the shadow accent. 

Over top of the medallion stamped image, you now stamp the second background stamp, Tres Chic, in full-strength ink.

Add some nice ribbon. Attach with Sticky Strip - its super strong!

Our new "Thanks" Embosslit Die (for the Big Shot or similiar die-cutting machines).  Attach with a couple of brads.

It's easy - great looking, and you'll really enjoy the ease of working where your work is effortless, not much to think about.....stress-free. AND there's more!.....a new punch within Stampin' UP!'s collection is the ' Modern Label' and it will fit right over the this embosslit die for double the look.
