For these cards, A2 cards and 7g background papers were run through the Big Shot with the Sizzix Card Fronts, A2 Eyelet & Ornate die. This is a great way to mass produce cards. There are two card styles on the die, so 2 cards or 6-8 card fronts can be cut all at once!
For the Thank You focal, an SEI stamp set (Windsor?) was stamped in Versafine Vintage Sepia, then the scrollwork was added around the edges with Victorian Velvet Distress Ink. The ovals were punched with Marvy Uchida ovals in 2.5 & 3 " sizes, then tapped on the edges with Victorian Velvet.
The background papers were run through the Big Shot with A2 embossing folders from Cuttlebug (Birds & Swirls) and Sizzix (Regal Flourishes). Victorian Velvet ink was tapped over the top of the embossed images to add dimension.
A little ribbon from my stash (dotted ribbon below is from Quick Quotes), tied into a double bow with Becca's Peg Bow Maker, topped off each card in this set of four. A little more info on this bow maker. I am really picky about my bows and this little jewel takes all the muss and fuss away, and the bows come out beautifully!
