Elegant Thank You Card using Emboss Resist Technique

Welcome to my Corner of the World

I have made no secret that the Elegantly Said Stamp Set is probably one of my favorite sets from the 2021 -2022 Stampin’ UP! annual catalog, not least because it has the coordinating Elegant Tag punch and for those of you who follow me, know that I do love a punch!

I have paired one of the 2020 -2022 Incolors, Misty Moonlight, with one of the 2021 – 2023 Incolors, Fresh Freesia’ I was musing on my color combination for today’s card they sort of ‘spoke’ to me, so I gave them a try and am really pleased with the result.

Heat Embossed Air Ship Card Idea

Welcome to my Corner of the World

I have used the airship on today’s card and stepped it up by heat embossing the image with gold.

Anyway, wishing all my readers, whether in the US or other parts of the world a Happy 4th!!
