Starry Thanks Card Set

April 3, 2016

My kiddos’ school was having a basket auction fund raiser. I donated a handmade card set, because what else would I donate? I had also just gotten a heat gun and embossing powder and was having way to much fun learning how to use it.

I water colored each background with Distress Inks. I wanted the cards to each be different, so I cut each water color piece in a slightly different way. After the backgrounds were completely dry and cut, I gold embossed some stars.  I also used a variety of sentiments to give each card a unique feel.

The third card: I tried using a water color pencil on this card. I was not in love with the results and did not use the pencil on any other card.
