Papertrey Thank You: Guidelines and Damask

This is another Thank You card using Papertrey stamps. They just released Guidelines Two on Saturday night, and I only got Guidelines within the past month. So before I committed to Guidelines Two (which looks really cool and will probably be mine eventually), I figured I should play with Guidelines. And it's a good thing, because I'm not so sure I'm good with it, lol! I think I just need practice. This one turned out alright, but I'm going to see if I can salvage the other one I tried. I should lay off the caffeine first. Ha!

So anyway, this will be another Thank You card for my family. I used Guidelines and a sentiment from Damask Designs for this one. I also got to use one of the brand-spanking-new border punches from Fiskars. While my mom was in town last weekend, we went to Joann, and she was kind enough to buy me some goodies. This was one of them! I was so excited to see the new ones there. So I'm pretty sure my mom will be getting one of these, since she helped create it in a way. :-)

Supplies: lavender cardstock base, The Paper Company; black cardstock, Bazzill; grey strip (stamped on), Making Memories Scrapbook Basics black & white mat set; black Memento dye ink; lavender Colorbox chalk ink; lavender satin edge organza ribbon from COD Wholesale (they often have GREAT sales on this stuff); Fiskars scallop border punch; Scor-Pal (for the grid above)

What a simply elegant and beautiful card! Great job with the Guidelines! I'm not sure if I'm up to being steady handed enough to use the Guidelines just yet...! x
