Thanks note card

Hi everyone! Hope your week is off to a great start! Mine sure is! As one of the February Guest Designers for Gina K Designs, I'm the Mix It Up Monday Challenge hostess this week! I chose a fun theme called Holey Cardstock! I want to see your project with at least one hole in your cardstock so your stamping shows through. The hole(s) can be any shape and can be punched, die cut or hand cut. It can be layered and adhered to the card base or you can leave the open hole cut through the card base. Come play with us!

I used stamps from two of the GKD February Release stamp sets - Lots of Washi and Signs of Spring - with a simple black and white color scheme. I cut a fairly large round hole to show all five Washi strips through, and matted the piece on black cardstock. I stamped the sentiment and large butterfly on the front, then added some buttons and B&W baker's twine, and attached the unit to the card base.

I used some Stardust pen on the butterfly for a little shimmer. I left the inside blank to use as a note card.

I'd love to enter this note card into the following challenges:

  • GKD Pure Luxury white cardstock; Paper and More black cardstock
  • GKD Lots of Washi stamp set
  • GKD Signs of Spring stamp set
  • Memento Tuxedo Black ink
  • Baker's twine
  • Papermania buttons

Thanks so much for stopping by today - we'll see you next time! ;)
