A Napkin Plus Freezer Paper Equals a Card

This card is for Technique Lover's Challenge #192 on SplitCoastStampers. Here is a link to the tutorial and the challenge. What you do is take a decorative napkin, use just the printed layer, and iron it on to freezer paper. Be sure to follow the directions in the tutorial. My napkin has four panels, so I can make four cards from each one. I've had these napkins for YEARS, and it was nice to finally open them up! The card is approximately 4.5 inches square.I used Versamark on vellum with gold detail embossing powder to stamp the 'thanks' and sponged Versamark around the edge, again using the gold embossing powder.

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

This is incredible! You know, I never do the technique challenges, but this is definitely a good one. Love the embossing -- it really adds so much to a card!

This is beautiful Lynette! I haven't tried it yet, but it's on my 'to do' list! Your vellum and embossing really makes it even more elegant. Great job!
