Simple For All Things Card

This is just a simple card that works great for Thanksgiving, or just as a thank you card.  It would be great to give to someone just to say how much you appreciate them, too.   This cute little card uses a little bit of several favorites:  stamps and ink, Simply Pressed Clay, and Designer Washi Tape. 

Tips & Tricks:
  • I don't think this card needs a lot of explanation, but I will point out that the button was made using the Simply Pressed Clay and Molds, and I colored the clay using a few drops of Crushed Curry ink refill.  
  • Did you know that there are a couple of great ways to speed up the process of making clay embellishments?  It takes a while for the clay to air dry, and I'm far too impatient for that!  Just pop the mold into the freezer (deep freeze works best) after putting the clay in the mold.  After about 15 minutes, the clay will be frozen and able to be removed from the mold easily.  Set it aside to air dry, or, if you happen to have a dehydrator, you can put it on a tray to dry more quickly.  I usually make a bunch using the freezer method, then put all of them in my dehydrator to dry.  It takes less than an hour.
