Pretty in Pink Thank You Card

I've been a very good girl this year, so I'm anticipating lots of goodies from Santa. So, in preparation I've made this Pretty in Pink thank you card using papers that I made following these basic instructions.

Here's how I created this card:
  1. Sponge Vintage Photo and Barn Door distress inks on the front of a blank card.
  2. Cut a piece of old sheet music with deckle-edge scissors about 1/2" shorter and narrower than your card. This piece was already aged, but if you're using a new piece you can give it an aged look by lightly sponging with Vintage Photo distress ink. 
  3. Deckle the edges of your handmade by painting a line of water where you want the edges of the paper to be. Gently pull the paper apart along the water line.
  4. Cut your handmade paper with your selected die. I used the bubbles from Sizzix Tim Holtz Alterations Collection. This is a small die, so I cut it twice.
  5. Emboss your handmade, die cut paper. I used a thank you sentiment.
  6. Mount the handmade paper to the piece of music using liquid adhesive, then mount these to the front of the card.
  7. Embellish as desired. I gathered a length on tulle to make a half rosette, mounted this in place with double sided adhesive tape, and glued a tiny rose in the center.
OK, Santa. Bring it on! I'm ready with your thank you card.
