How to make thank you card


A2 sized card 4.25 in. x 5.5 in.  Cut card base 8.5 in. x 5.5 in. fold in half.  To get the wood panel look background I scored the 4 in x 5.5 in cardstock panel in 1/2 and 1/4 in.  scores then used Saddle ink pad in a direct to paper inking process.  I inked all of the edges of the pieces then layered them on top of the card front.
