Do you ever send of give a card just because? One of my goals for 2017 is to send out some happy mail. I have always been good about making the cards, just really a bad and sending them. There are several people in my life that could use a little acknowledgement, so what better way to let them know you appreciate their friendship than sending them a handmade card?!
Of course I could spend hours creating a mini work of art, however I know me and I know that I sometimes have a hard time actually letting go of those types of projects, lol (please tell me I am not the only one). Plus they need to be mailable and I also know it is not how fancy the card is, it is the thought that goes into, right?
This is the clean and simple design that I came up with. A great way to add depth, interest and the illusion of layers is by doing a little collage stamping. For this card I used the Timeless Textures Stamp set (one of my absolute favourite sets and definitely a go to for me). To create a tone on tone or "watermark" effect I used Versamark and several of the images to create a layered background. I then used the small "splatter" image with Whisper White Craft Ink. A decorative die cut edge was layered behind a strip of DSP, then a little ribbon tied into a bow. I also used the Layering Circle Framelits and the new Stitched Shapes Framelits to frame the sentiment.
There you have it, a quick and simple card that I am hoping any one of my friends would love to receive:)
