IO CHA Blog Hop- Day 4


Today is day 4 of the Impression Obsession blog hop, and I wanted to share with you a really quick and easy card (5 minutes tops) featuring the Crossword Cover a Card (CC159).

I always seem to need thank you cards, and I thought the new Thanks (A9061) script looked like it could have been written by the new Calligraphy Pen (C9037).  Everything was stamped with black Versafine ink onto white cardstock.  I didn't do any coloring or shading.  All I did to finish the card was add a bit of grey and red papers for layering.  You could just as easily fill out the crossword with personalized sentiments, but I wanted to leave the pattern blank.


Don't forget to check out the other designers in the blog hop for a chance to win prizes.
