Thank You Card: Faux Linen

I learned this technique from Bobbi Jo V. a Close to My Heart Consultant.  Bobbi Jo found the idea on Split Coast Stampers: Faux Linen Technique.  Using photo paper, a thank you stamp, and black CTMH ink, stamp the words "Thank You" over the entire photo paper.  A card size stamp with a verse or over-all design works great too!  Once the ink is dry,  gently sand horizontally and vertically until all the gloss is gone.  Next, using a sponge, apply a light colored ink to the sanded photo paper.  Gently sand again.  After selecting a flower stamp, finish the card by stamping on the design, adding a ribbon, and adhering the photo paper to the card.
