Thank You

Hi everyone!
Thanks for visiting my blog, Leisa's Craft Cave

Yesterday I was frantically trying to get something done for this week's Crazy Crafters Team Project Highlights and I managed to do it, yay!!!

Today's project is something very simple yet I think very effective at the same time.  Many a time we spend looking for or making just the right card for that special someone - this I feel can be used for anyone.

This week's creation:

Using Basic Black card stock as a base I think really makes these colours pop!! The card base measures 5.75" x 4" and I’ve layered using Whisper White measuring 5.5" x 3.75".

I created my own background of 3 colours: Bermuda Bay, Melon Mambo and Tempting Turquoise, with the gorgeous splatter stamp from Touches of Texture. If you don’t already have this set in your collection may I suggest purchasing with your next order. It is gorgeous and you can achieve so many stunning effects.

I wasn’t sure how I was going to add my greeting– I thought about a banner style, then label but wasn’t convinced. So while playing around with scraps on my table, it came to me – a simple 2" Basic Basic square with the sentiment stamped on Whisper White – BINGO!! Very stylish I think lol.

I used the ‘Thank you’ sentiment from One Big Meaning stamp set on the front and a sentiment from Thoughtful Branches stamp set on the inside. I added a bit of splatter for interest.

I hope I have given you some inspiration to experiment and create your own backgrounds.  I have included my creation in this week's Crazy Crafters Team Highlights.
