Thank you

This week's Created by Hand challenge is to do a thank you card. For this one, I used a beautiful new hand lettered calligraphy stamp by Suzanne Canon. I decided that I wanted the lettering to be the focal point, so I kept the card simple, and simply outlined the Thank You piece with metallic ink. The punch is one of the new edge punches by Martha Stewart. Please believe me, this card is perfectly rectangular (lol). I'm away from home right now, and have no access to my scanner, of course, so I used my camera, and can never get a shot that perfectly captures the correct dimensions.



Thanks so much for visiting today.

Deborah, what a stately and classic card! Just beautiful in its simplicity. I know what you mean about the camera making rectangles look like trapezoids! It happens to me often. However, yours looks perfect to me.
