Vintage Style Thank You Card

My sister sent me a giant set of Gelatos for my birthday so I had to play with them.  I made this old fashioned thank you card using lots of antiqued layers.  I started with a piece of cardstock with writing on it and smeared on three colors of Gelatos.  The pigments are rich and sparkly.  I used a watercolor brush to soften and blend the colors.  Next I distressed and inked the edges.  Then it was time to start layering.  I embossed the filigree with embossing powder and added more Gelatos to the thank you plaque.  I hope my sister likes it!


  1. a gorgeous card! so happy for your gelato-present!:-)
