Elegant Thank You Notes

Ok, I promise - after today, no more Razzle Dazzle for a week! I just can't seem to put this set down. As I was walking past my ribbon jars today this polka dot ribbon caught my eye, and I thought it would look great on a little set of Thank You notes.

Out came the heat tool and the embossing powder and I soon had these cuties finished. Embossing was probably the thing that got me hooked on stamping and cardmaking. My wedding invites were all cream and gold embossing so it's nice to revisit this simple but elegant technique once in awhile.

I always think a Versamark stamp pad is one of the first purchases any beginner stamper should make. It's so useful to have in your stash. My favourite thing about Versamark is that it allows you to heat emboss using the SU! Classic inkpads. Just ink your stamp with Versamark, then your dye ink - stamp and emboss as usual.

For these cards I stamped the Razzle Dazzle image then quickly over stamped the sentiment before heat embossing with clear embossing powder. The image panel is bordered on the corresponding card stock and popped up on dimensionals.

  1. runs to inbox (just joking).I am liking that ribbon with the cards...also like how each card is a different colour.

  2. Where did you get that black polka dot ribbon??? It looks identical to the real red SU! polka dot ribbon!!! I am VERY envious!!! What a gorgeous job ... and thanks for reminding me ... I haven't done any embossing for ages!!! Hugs, Andrea xxx
