Thank You Card
I was asked to make a very basic and quick thank you card for a friend. I used My Craft Studio Tattered lace and did some faux matting and layering to avoid high costs of postage ie you get the effect without the cost. I then digitally imported some lace and changed the colour, a butterfly and changed the colour and added the sentiment. I am trying to force myself to use the My Craft Studio Professional but I am terrible at times and will use what I am used to ie the initial My Craft Studio. I think my New Year's Resolution might be to get to grips with this!!! I have then simply decoupaged the flower up by four layers, but four layers of DST so it's not high but you still get the effect. I have distressed the edges and distressed a little cut/embossed a little butterfly with Tim Holtz's Dusty Concord distress ink pad for a tad of dimension. Please excuse the awful photo - I took a photo before handing the card over to my friend but didn't check the quality!!!
This card fits the following challenges:
City Crafter - Thank you
My Time to Craft - Rhapsody of roses
