Thank you cards are always needed so when I find a great, versatile thank you greeting set I love to make several at once. The new Thank You Wishes Stamp Set from Mama Elephant has a gorgeous oversize scripty greeting and lots of smaller phrases to create custom thank you cards! I stamped and embossed the greetings and then applied Distress Inks over the embossing for the embossed resist technique.
I die cut watercolor cardstock with the skinny frame Dotted Detail die four times. I set aside the frame for another project and kept the inside rectangle. I die cut smooth white cardstock four times as well, this time keeping the frame.
I stamped each solid rectangle with the large "Thank You" greeting from the Thank You Wishes Stamp Set and also a smaller phrase greeting using Versamark Ink and heat embossed the greeting with white embossing powder.
I applied a trio of Distress Ink colors over the embossed panels using Mini Ink Blending Tool. The Distress Ink colors I used for each card are listed below the individual card photos. I spritzed each panel with water from a Distress Sprayer and then blotted each dry with a paper towel.
I adhered the embossed resist greetings to side fold card bases and then adhered each skinny frame, finishing each card with Pretty Pink Posh sequins attached with Bling Glue Dots.
