Thanks From the Heart

Two weeks ago my Mother-in-Law arrived to take care of four of our kids for a week. It was the first time hubby and I had ever gone away together for a week and it is a time that I’ll always cherish. I just cannot thank her enough. Today’s card is on its way to her.

This card is another one of my “bits and pieces” cards. I love using what’s on my desk to make something pretty. The embossing folder was a new one that I’d just ordered and as it was very similar in shape to the Basic Grey canvas, I decided to pair them together and see how it went.

My sentiment is stamped onto a piece of Maya Road chipboard. Love those wavy layerable banners! The chipboard is first stained withe Shabby Shutters Distress Stain, dried with a heat gun and then stamped.

Quick Tip:When using Distress Stains on chipboard, try it out on a scrap first. The greyish texture will slightly change the color on you. Make sure you dry it before deciding if it works as the color will lighten as it dries.


Thanks for stopping by!
