Thinking of You


Great Thinking of You or Get Well Card.  To get this look on your card use Versamark Ink and White Embossing Powder.  When you use your Stampin Blends over the White Embossing Powder you get this great look. Don't forget to use your Embossing Buddy on the card stock before stamping.  This will help the Embossing Powder stick only where you stamped it.  Don't worry about staying in the lines the Blends do not show up on the black paper. Use sentiment of your choice.
