Color Blocked Thanks

Today's card is SUPER simple, and can translate well into a variety of other colors of embossing powder or ink. 

I started with a Very Vanilla card base, and used a piece of Post it tape to create a line for the copper color block.  I slid a piece of scrap paper behind the card, and between the card layers, and smushed my Versamark pad down on the card front.  I covered that with embossing powder and heat set it.  

Once the powder was melted, I stamped my sentiment along the same angle, and added the rhinestone accents.  As I said SUPER quick and easy card!

I made a few other combos, with both embossing powder and ink. When using a colored ink, I would recommend sponging it on in layers, rather than pressing the pad directly on the card.  Pressing the pad down oversaturates the card stock, which can warp the shape, and will take a very long time to dry.

Thanks for stopping by!
