Thank You

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

This is such an easy card to make.

I stamped both the Justrite Garden Trellis Background and the flower from the Justrite Floral Thank You Stamp Set onto Milk Card using Cosmic Shimmer Flake & Glitter Glue. While the glue was changing from blue to clear, I cleaned my stamps. I then rubbed Persian Dawn Gilding Flakes over the images, removing the excess with a piece of Rubit Scrubit.

I stamped the sentiment from the Justrite Floral Thank You Stamp Set using Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Gold Detail Embossing Powder. I cut it out using the smallest die in Sue's Dainty Rectanglular Frame Die Set.

I assembled the card as shown piercing around the edges using a piercing tool and piercing ruler.

Wonder if Sue's shows will go ahead today? The dies flew out yesterday.

Thanks for stopping by.



  1. Morning Julia and all crafters, what a lovely card to greet us on this chilly Sunday morning, all those gilding flakes make you feel all warm inside, love it.
