August Neat & Tangled Release - Just Your Basic Card

Hi everyone!  I've got one last project to share with you using this month's release.  Just your basic card using the Thanks So Much stamp set and Gift Card Box Additions die set.

This was a super quick and easy card and one you could easily mass produce.  I started by stamping and embossing one of the frame images from the Thanks So Much stamp set in gold on some cream cardstock, and then die cut it using the mat piece from the additions set.

I also stamped/embossed the diamond shape and the Bless Your Heart sentiment.  When I die cut that, I managed to not do a good job because I was rushing and didn't tack the die down and it shifted a bit.  So, I swiped my Versamark pad over the edges of the diamond shape and embosssed with gold to cover up my whoops.

I cut a mat for my frame piece from gold mirror board cardstock, and then used some foam adhesive to add a bit of dimension to the card and the layers.

Such an easy card, but I love the look of it!
