the background was made by running waxed lunch wrap in an embossing folder through the Cuttlebug, then placing the wax paper inside two pieces of cardstock and ironing with a warm iron for a short time - too long and it will 'burn off' the wax. I used water based ink pads and with a butterscotch colour rubbed it over the top of the cardstock, wiped off any excess ink with a tissue. I then carefully rubbed the vintage photo ink pad across the top to highlight the embossed image.
Making "Thank You" notes from Brown Kraft paper, paint sample stips, and a punch-out. (sort of an Ombre thank you note!)... You could use ANY punch...such as a HEART punch for Valentine's Day, and a Valentine's sentiment for the stamp.... USE white stamp pad for the words to pop off the brown paper!
