Kanji Thanks Stamp

Happy Monday, everyone! Jen (JLJ Designs) here with the new Kanji stamps. I thought it would be fun to use these stamps on gate fold cards, which were super-easy to make using the Ultimate tool. I usually avoid these types of cards because it's difficult to match the fold, but the Ultimate tool matched everything up easily. I covered my card stock base in Asian-inspired papers. I stamped the Kanji background onto vellum and then mounted it on patterned paper. I then attached it to one side of the gate gold card.

I decorated the inside the same way. Hubby is always looking for "flat" thank you cards. He means ones without a lot of embellishments. I added a stamped "Thanks" to the inside of the card. With the patterned papers and stamped images. I don't think this card needs anything else, so I'm happy and hubby is happy.

Happy Crafting!
