Thank You

Hi My Crafty Blog Friends

Thank you for all the get well messages. I  ended up taking two days off work and now I am mostly left with a cough. I knew I was starting to feel better when I started feeling like I wanted to make something.

I have had two very kind gifts recently and I wanted to make thank you cards for the senders.


I started with a 6" x 6"  black card blank. I cut two mats one gold and one black.


I stamped the Clarity thank you stamp in CS Perfect Medium round the edge of the black mat and I heat embossed it with a gold embossing powder. I did start by trying this with gilding flakes first but I wasn't happy with the result.


The centre panel was made with a set of stamps designed by Phill Martin. I did raise this panel on foam tape to give a little dimension.


The final touch was to add some dots in CS Olympic Gold in the corners. 

I hope you enjoy the rest of the week.

Happy Crafting

Hugs Jackie
