I made this card with an adorable kitten in a basket vintage image to thank my parents for watching the kitty cats.
- The layout is pretty straightforward, so I won't get into a bunch of details like normal, but I do want to point out the little thank you tag. I punched first, then stamped...which could drive the best stamper crazy except for the miraculous Stamp-a-ma-jig! I first discovered this tool when I was a Stampin' Up! demonstrator and it has saved me much angst in the years since. If you don't have a Stamp-a-ma-jig or similar stamp positioner in your toolbox, you may want to invest (they are not expensive). This is my un-sponsored, honest opinion!
