Ebossed Thank You


This card used a few new techniques for me
I was brought an ebosser as Birthday/Christmas present and received it last week
I wanted to make a card to say thank you
I used the embossing folder that came with me the machine
and inked the edges in a brilliance gold pearlized ink
The sentiment was letterpressed using the same gold ink and again the ebosser
Finally the sentiment and mat where cut using my spellbinder labels 
To finish the card I added the cream ribbon
I am not usually one for the inking techniques and this is my first real go
Not bad for a beginner I love the clean cuts and deep embossing the machine does
Really impressed with it - I am so lucky

This card is for the following challenges:

Wow Nicky, this is both very beautiful and very classy. The 'Thank you' for which this card is given will show the depth of appreciation. It looks as though your Christmas/Birthday gift is going to be very well used and enjoyed -. Well, I know how much I have enjoyed seeing this card - Your gold inking adds such richness to this card.
Thank you for sharing this lovely card in our challenge this week. Ingrid xx ( OSAAT Team )

Hi Nicky - I just love the simplicity of your card. Absolutely wonderful, and (I have my thinking head on), wouldn't it look nice made into a batch of cards for a present. You could do them with different coloured matting layers and different matching inks around the edge!! I love this!

Thank you so much for playing along with us at the OSAAT challenge this week, lots of luck to you.
