I love when good things happen. I also love a quick-and-easy card that uplifts the recipient. I’m thinking about you. I’m proud of you. Good things are going to happen. What great reasons to send a card to someone you care about! Today’s project is a simple, straightforward card with an uplifting message. What’s not to love about that? Here’s my card:
I’m adding my card to the great cards on Paper, Ink and Stamps challenge site – a new challenge created by my buddy Justin Krieger. Here’s the challenge banner:
It’s fitting because I’m in love with the You’ve Got This stamp set, the Lots of Labels Framelits and the Thick Whisper White card stock. In love.
Tips, Tricks and Reminders
- Good Things. This sentiment is from You’ve Got This – a beautiful stamp set that’s packed full of supportive and friendly sayings. I love them all – and it doesn’t hurt that the font is just beautiful, does it? I stamped it on Thick Whisper White card stock (LOVE) and punched it with a 1-3/4″ Circle punch. I didn’t layer any card stock behind it – why? Because I didn’t have to. 🙂
- Lots of Labels. I adore these new Lots of Labels Framelits – a great tool for showcasing a standard sentiment – or “hanging” a banner over the edge of a card front. I cut the Watermelon Wonder card stock and Cherry on Top Designer Series Paper Stack with the framelits, glued them on top of each other and then cropped the end off. I wrapped some new Bermuda Bay Thick Baker’s Twice around the banner and under the sentiment for an added “wow.”
- Tone-on-Tone. I normally love to add layer upon layer to a card front. For this card, though, the central banner needed to be the focal point. As such, I decided to let the Bermuda Bay piece of Cherry on Top Designer Series Paper fade into the base of this card. No borders to steal focus. The tone-on-tone effect helps to make my focal point pop.
