Thanks Banner


     I liked the distress letter press technique that I used on the Artsy Rooster so much that I decided to use it again. This card qualifies for the simple-one-layer card category. This is not a category that I spend much time in. I tend to put lots of layers with not much room to rest the eye on my cards. 


     I started by inking the Paper Studio Banner embossing folder with Baja Breeze ink. I took me three tries to get one that had almost no ink on the banners. I used Sizzix’s Classic letters to cut the word: thanks out of patterned paper. I used my paper piercer to make holes on each side of each banner. I stitched the banners together with brown twine. I then used the same holes to place a tiny brown brad in each hole.

     I used a border from Lawn Fawn’s Stitched Hillside Borders to guide my surface for the plants to sit on. The stamp is Gina K’s Plant Trio.
