About Me

I love crafting, especially rubber stamping. Most weekends I can be found surrounded by paper, rubber stamps and ink.

 Hello peeps,

Over the last few days I've been working on "Thank You" cards to send to friends that sent me Retirement gifts. I finally got most of them finished and now I just need to get them in the mail. This card is one of them.

Using the Tic-Tac-Toe gird from this week's Paper Players Challenge and using the middle horizontal options of red, twine and die cuts, this is what I came up with. The background is made using Tim Holts alcohol inks on black Yuppo card stock. The new GKD Monthly Mix June 2021 Challenge is backgrounds, and this card will be entered there too.

The stamp set is from Gina K Designs, as are the inks, card stock, (other than the alcohol inks and Yuppo) and dies. If you look closely, there is a red heart eyelet that I attached to the board and threaded the loop of twine through.

Here is the inside of the card using more images from the GKD stamp set.

Happy Hump Day to all and thanks for looking in,
