A Day of Thanks

I whipped up this little card to send to a friend.  I love the way it turned out!  Lots of fun making this one and, for me, it came together fairly quickly (READ: not many mess ups along the way!).
I used the BoBunny paper as the background and then I used the Hero Arts newspaper stamp to create the torn vintage looking mat to the leaf.  I had fun inking, tearing, and generally messing it up!  The leaf stamp is from one of the blueprint stamps that Tim Holtz has designed.  I love these stamps and the quality is so good...they just stamp perfectly each time.  I stamped on my mat with some Distress Ink and then stamped it again on some ivory Neenah cardstock and cut out the leaf after going to town with some distress inks to color it.
The "ribbon" is some seam binding that I inked up.
And then I used a little wax seal to finish it off.

Inside I stamped the sentiment which is "A dat of thanks" which was from a Close to My Heart set.
This was a wonderfully fun card to make....I loved dabbling in all the inks!

Happy Crafting!
