Lamp Thank You

I have the sweetest aunt who likes to send unexpected packages of goodies to Eric and me.  We were very excited to find one on our doorstep last week, so I made this thank you note to send to her.  It's made with an 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" kraft card base, scored at 4 1/4".  The spring moss layer is 5 1/4" x 4", and the cream layer is 5" x 3 3/4".  To dress up the cream layer, I first stamped it with the My Creative Time Script Type Backgrounds, using fine linen ink.  Then I added some branches and leaves from Papertrey Ink's Lovely Leaves stamp set, using kraft and spring moss ink.

The cute little lamp was cut with Papertrey Ink's Lighten Up die, and I stamped the lampshade with a stamp from the Lighten Up stamp set, using canyon clay ink on canyon clay cardstock.  I like how the My Creative Time Stitched Oval Die made a place to set my lamp (almost like a rug), and I stamped the sentiment from My Creative Time's Teeny Tag Greetings.

On the inside, I used a sentiment from the Lighten Up stamp set.

Products I used on this card:
