Mashed Potatoes and Crafts card

Hello crafters!
Today is my day to post a tutorial on 
You can go there to see how I created this tag and "background" piece.
I decided not to use them as background piece, even though 
that is what I intended them to be when I started.
Here is what I decided to do with them.
I used 2 circle punches and punched circles.
I used foam tape to adhere one on top of another.
I embossed the white background with an embossing folder 
and my Cuttlebug.
Then adhered the circles to the embossed piece.
I stamped the "Thank You" with the same color 
ink I used to create the circles and layered it onto another
piece of that background.
I also inked the edges of the card base with the same 
Distress Ink so it would all coordinate.
Here is a closer look that shows how the foam tape
gives a little dimension.

I hope you have or will check out the tutorial on 
and try it out for yourself. 

Thanks for stopping in to see my creation,
I hope you have been inspired in some way.
Until next time, Happy Crafting!
