Simple Thanks

 My card today was so fun to create. A while ago I watched a Chrissie Stokes video of a very fun technique: use liquid adhesive to fix colored tissue on card stock and squish it up while still wet to create texture and let it dry. Then lightly rub Gilding wax over the rough edges.  I made a bunch of sheets in different colors. 

Today I cut one of the pieces with Simon Says Stamp Large Stitched Maple Leaf die. The card front was embossed with Altenew's Linen folder, and I rubbed gilding wax along the edges of the smaller rectangle and used a Gina K Designs stamp from the Fluttering Fall set to gold heat emboss the sentiment. More sparkle from some sequins in my stash.
