3:00 Thanks – Episode 4

These thank you cards were made using Stampin’ Up! card stock, papers, inks and stamps including Flowering Foils Designer Series Paper (DSP). The colours used included Early Espresso, Soft Suede as well as Smoky Slate. You can see the difference in how the 1/8″ versus 1/4″ matting looks in the finished cards as well as how different mat colour combinations affect how the card looks too.

Do you have a preference for the colour combinations? How about the matting size? Do you prefer the 1/8″|3/8″ combination or equal 1/4″|1/4″? Have you made any cards using this Flowering Foils Designer Series Paper (DSP) or using this card layout. Add your thoughts and links in the comments sections below.
