During our Oregon vacation, my husband and I had spent one night at C.H. Bailey House.
This is a darling bed and breakfast that we didn’t really want to leave.
About a week after we came back we received a beautiful card from the hostess/owner, Sherry.
In this card she thanked us for choosing C. H. Bailey House.
I was so moved by this gesture that I decided to return a thank you card of my own, which is the one you can see above.
Sometimes a simple ‘thanks’ will suffice.
- Hey Y’all Clear Stamp by Hero Arts & Studio Calico.
- Chit Chat Clear Stamps by Technique Tuesday.
- Versamark ink.
- Embossing pen.
- White embossing powder.
- Heating tool.
- Red cardstock by Bazzil.
- Patterned paper by Crate Paper (Emma’s Shoppe collection).
This card was super easy to make.
I simply cut the patterned paper a bit shorter and narrower than the card front (4″ by 5¼”) and mounted it over the card front.
Then I stamped the speech bubble on top of another, more solid, patterned paper with Versamark ink, covered it with embossing powder and heat set it with the heating tool.
Next I added the greeting, which fit perfectly inside the stamp from the other set – and embossed it as well. As I didn’t have a period stamp, I simply added it with a Versamark embossing pen before applying the embossing powder to the entire greeting.
Finally I cut around the embossed image and adhered it to the card with some foam tape.
That. Is. All.
