Tree Thanks

I needed a thank-you card for a man so I decided to go clean and simple. 

I had some of this handmade specialty paper left over from another project, so I decided to go with black and white.  I started by mounting the paper on a white card base.  I embossed the tree and sentiment with Black Opal on a white scrap, outlined in silver marker, and affixed to the card (this is one of my favourite embossing powders - you can enlarge the picture to see all the sparkles).  Here are the supplies used:
  • Stamp:  Tree (The Old Island Stamp Company), sentiment (dollar store)
  • Ink:  Versamark Watermark
  • Embossing Powder:  The Artful Stamper - Black Opal
  • Specialty Paper:  Memory Star
  • Silver Marker:  Pilot
  • White Card Base:  Domtar
