Stash busting and a tip and a freebie!

A get well card I made tonight for a member request on my FB group Christian Card Makers 
The base card was a piece of cardstock from one of the first Paper stacks I purchased in 2011 . It was DCWV 'four seasons'. I cut the whole stack in half and m ade 6x5 cards. I think I have used every piece of that stack and this was the last one!

The butterfly stamp is a Tim Holtz stamp and is ink with memento black on Neenah solar white.

Sentiment is one of my digis'

Coloring done with pencil

I coated it with a layer of Lineco glue - this gives it a leathery feel and makes it very durable.

Another little trick I have, is to color  my dimensional's reverse image side. 

Here is the finished card:

Pretty simple, working with things that haven't gotten packed yet - 
I forgot how much I like those papers!

Thanks for stopping by!
