Lacy Emboss Resist Thank You Card

My friend Jan gave me the gorgeous SU! 'Something Lacy' stamp for my birthday and I wanted to use it to make her a thank you card.  I've had no time recently to make cards for myself as I've been so busy with stuff for classes.  I managed to get some crafty me time on Friday and I had a wonderful time getting inky creating this card!

I stamped the lace onto Whisper White CS with VersaMark ink and heat embossed with white powder.  I used ink duster brushes to apply Broken China, Faded Jeans and Evergreen Bough Distress Inks, trimmed the panel to size and inked the edges with SU! Night of Navy ink.  I layered the panel onto a Night of Navy CS mat and placed a rhinestone brad in each corner.  That lacy goodness is far too pretty to cover up so I opted to make a die cut sentiment the focal point on top of the background.   Using Night of Navy CS I cut a strip to go across the card, die cut my new Spellbinder's 'Pierced Delight' label shape and popped that up.  I die cut two white sentiment labels and popped up the stamped 'Thank You' label.  I die cut the Joanna Sheen 'Lace Edger 2' border from 'Harborside' Core'dinations CS, glued that behind the Night of Navy mat and adhered the whole panel to the front of a 7" x 5" white card base.  A bit of sparkle is always good and I completed the front by sprinkling on a few rhinestone gems.

Here's the inside and the envelope flap.

Here's the front of the envelope.  The fancy corner was made with a 'Floral Corner 1' Spellbinders D-Lites die - also a gift from Jan.  For the inside and the envelope I inked the Something Lacy stamp with Broken China, Faded Jeans and Evergreen Bough Distress Inks, stamped it onto Whisper White CS and cut strips from the stamped piece.
