Thank you Card/ Using negative tutorial


Happy Saturday everyone!

Welcome back or welcome for the first time , welcome, welcome, welcome!

I wanted to be quick today because I have very close friends coming to spend the day with us, we are going to have the meanest BBQ ever! I even had a homemade pumpkin pie made by a friend of mine and it is to die for. I have a feeling I won't be that quick because I put together a picture tutorial for you!!!!

First I want to give you a quick tutorial on a negative background I used, I had cut out 120 scallop tags from the  Birthday Bash Cricut Cartridge for an order and thought what could I do with this pretty negative???




I knew it would take a little patience but I started out adhering this negative to a white piece of cardstock and I inked it up! I only did part of the page.



Next I cut out the size I wanted and used 3D squares on the back of the peach sheet


 
 
 Then I put the negative back over the other as it was first only now it is raised!


 
Then I added flowers I made from a small cheap grass punch , I embossed the words Thank you and also around the edges, added bling and a pin to decorate.
 
 
I am entering this card into Cooking with Cricut (100th Challenge) over at Melinda's Paper Crafting World.
 



Have a fantastic day!!
