Ohhh - Shiny! *LOL*

Good morning everyone.  This is one of those cards that just doesn't look the same when photographed!  I made 4 of these for Thank you cards.  The background paper is by K I Memories - I bought it as an individual sheet at my local store.  It has a sort of pearl sheen to it.  It's subtle enough to remain very elegant and not to "blingy."  I used a similar finished cardstock by DCWV for the sentiment.  I cut "Thanks" from Gypsy Wanderings with my Cricut - but I didn't cut all the way through the paper - so you just see the impression of the word.  It's pretty in person - and a lot more obvious than in the photo.  I finished off with some brown satin ribbon.  

I cranked out 4 of these in pretty short order.  I wanted them to be nice - but when I'm in a hurry to make multiple cards it's great to be able to do them assembly line style and just rock and roll on them!

Thanks so much for stopping by - I'm working on catching up with this blog - and visiting yours too!

I love the idea of not cutting the word all the way through the paper. I'll have to try that! Great idea and beautiful card. I am working on some "mass thankyou's" myself this evening. TFS Hugs, Kimmy
