Today, I’m excited to share a super-simple and super-fun card with a super-easy recipe: it’s one part celebration and two parts “wow!”. That’s it! Oh! And I’ll show you how to use Marquee Messages in a way you might not have thought to use it. Here’s my card:
Tips, Tricks and Reminders
- Marquee Messages. I’ve heard several people “swear off” Marquee Messages because they call it a “one-trick pony.” They contend that you can only make one card with it – a bit marquee sign with words. That’s not true! I’ve made four other cards so far with elements of this set, and I don’t think they look alike at all. You can click on any of these cards to see the previous posts:
- Creating a Stand-alone Arrow. In the first card above, I snipped all the pieces to layer over the marquee. In the third, I used only the base of the sign for a clean-and-simple card. The other two cards featured just the sentiments. Today’s card, though, showcases the point of the arrow – I cropped the arrow after creating a thin, black across it (see below) with my Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker (still offered as an individual marker – #100082). A little snipping, and I now have an arrow that can be used to draw focus to almost anything. How easy what that?!?
- Color Combination. I’ve been using a lot of blues lately – Bermuda Bay gives me a little green at the same time. Paired with Whisper White and Daffodil Delight, Bermuda Bay takes on a new look. The yellow really plays with the green in Bermuda Bay, don’t you think? If you, too, like this combination, feel free to save this:
