Thanks So Much

Hi crafty friends!

I have a fun ombre thank you card to share with you today. I made this a little bit ago but sometimes I put my cards under a hard surface to flatten them and well I forgot about it.

For this card I used watercolour paper and a few different blue colours to watercolour the background to get a sort of ombre gradient look. I die cut the background using the Starry Background die from Wplus9. I matted this panel on some glitter paper (didn't photograph well, sorry!) 
The sentiment is from My Favourite Things, I embossed it on vellum with some gold embossing powder. I wanted something black on the card so it wasn't overly matchy but I didn't have any washi tape that would have worked so I made my own using tissue paper. I just stamped the chevron stamp on a strip of tissue paper, tore the edges and adhered on top of my vellum to make it look like washi tape.

Thank you so much for stopping by! I always appreciate your sweet comments!:)
Have an amazing day!
