Make It Monday #73: Stamping on Patterned Paper

Well I wanted to make a bunch of thank you cards today so I decided to do it by way of any challenges that were going on this week. I just grabbed my cup of coffee and let the challenges begin...

Make It Monday #73: Stamping on Patterned Paper

 So the Make It Monday #73: Stamping on Patterned Paper  challenge over at Papertrey Ink was a bit out of my comfort zone. Not stamping on a clean slate?  I guess that is why they call it a challenge.

I decided to use a long card, 7 1/2 inches, because the sentiment was long and I liked how it looked on that length of card stock. I stamped it on the patterned paper and then embossed it with clear embossing powder. 

This is the first time I have made a card this length so I lined the envelope with the same patterned paper to add a little something extra.
