Time Goes By So Quickly

I've got cards done, but just haven't found the time to update my blog. My grandson's birthday party is this Saturday. He turns 2 on Sunday. The time sure does fly by,when you're the Grandma.
Remember when I said I had a bunch of Thank You cards to make? Well, a few people got one that looked like this. This is so easy to do. The craft paper in the back is just one piece, measuring 5 1/2" x 4 1/4". I took a piece of ivory cardstock
and folded it in half, so that it was 5 1/2" x 8 1/2". I put my cardstock on the top note die, making sure that the top of the cardstock was about 1/4" down from the top of the die. That way, when you run it through the big shot, you come out with 2 top note dies that are hinged together. So actually, you flip the top note open to see the sentiment inside. The kraft cardstock is just for looks. I took my fancy scissors to the edge of the kraft paper, so it didn't look so blah. I then stamped versamark on the stamp, and then into the water based ink I wanted, and stamped the card. I then put embossing powder on top, gave it some heat, and did that for the rest of the stamps. Then when everything is embossed, I took some blue ink, and sponged it over the whole thing. And then I wiped the ink off of the embossed images. Easy Peasy.

Update on my Copics...I need to watch some more videos on you-tube! :-)
