Thank you in ombre

It's interesting how trends seem to move from one area of our lives to another. For example, Ombre. I've seen it in hair color, clothing, nail polish and even cards.  This effect is reached by stacking different shades of color in a pattern, like on this thank you card.

This technique is easy to do with the new(ish) firm foam ink pads from Stampin' Up! Because they are so juicy, you can stamp easily 3 times, like I did here, without re-inking your stamp. It gives the perfect reduction of color.

All products are Stampin' Up!
