Today, guest Kim Taylor is sharing a colorful thank you card.
For this happy bright project I used the So Many Stars Stencil from YNS for the background and ink blended a rainbow with some dye based inks. The Pick Me Up stamp set is small but mighty and I used it and the coordinating dies as the focal point for this top folding A2 card – the stencil, stamp & dies are still available at the time of posting this. I used the inks as paint and lightly painted in each of the balloons. The letters were stamped in the coordinating colours and cut out with the die. The sentiment is stamped in Versafine and the whole front is matted on a black mat and placed on a white card base.
Crafty Tip: I save my scraps of white card stock and use them for building dimension. The main image has 3 extra layers underneath it for dimension. I like this method as it really adds stability to an image that has fine cut outs like these balloon strings. It also keeps it from bending during mailing.
