Recently, I decided to make a handful of Thank You cards to have on hand and with a fun new embossing folder I picked up -- it was easy as pie to create 6 of these in 45 minutes!
I used some textured Coredinations cardstock that I bought in a big pack at Hobby Lobby and cut it to measure 4 by 5-1/4" I ran it through my Wizard with the Quick Kutz Vine Label Embossing Folder and then the fun began! I used a sanding block to sand down the embossed part to reveal the pattern. Since this folder has a little "window" for a sentiment - I cut a strip of paper 1'' wide to fit in that window. Stamp a sentiment in Teal ink (Vivid) and.... the rest is matting! I matted it on some pearl paper and then again on a standard size white card stock base and .... voila! You can see -- picking the paper, finding ink to match and cutting was the longest part of this process! I easily made these in a half hour.
