Simple Thanks

The card for today’s entry is another one made with some pieces that I had lying around on my table.

I was doing a little experimenting with my Scor-Pal yesterday, so one of my pieces was from that. I cut a square and scored it from corner to corner every half inch in both directions. Then I flipped the cardstock over and scored it half-way between the previous score lines. I think it turned out pretty cool! I wanted to mount it with a scalloped square, so I cut it down just a tad with a square Nestability and embossed the edge, then cut the scalloped mat out of pale yellow.

The butterfly is one I made quite a while ago and just came across the other day. (Actually, I had been looking for it earlier, but couldn’t find it. Then it just showed up!) I had stamped it with Versamark on Vellum, embossed it with a silver-sparkle white embossing powder, and carefully cut it out. I mounted it with a small piece of Pop Dot and bent the wings up a bit.

I added a ribbon, embossed the “MANY THANKS” with a small Cuttlebug embossing folder and sanded that down so the white core of the paper came through, and called it done!

Thanks for looking, and I hope you’ll come back and visit again soon!
