For me, keeping some cards simple makes my crafting fun and stress free. Sometimes I feel I put too much pressure on myself to create that one, mind-blowing piece of art that I put all my time and energy into. Then, when I finish the project that I had such high hopes for I usually feel like I fell short. I find that I am most satisfied with my cards when I stick to techniques I know how to do well.
This card is a simple example of just that. I love doing ink blending and sometimes I just like to play with colors. for the background of this card, I blended together some Twisted Citron, Mermaid Lagoon, and Tumbled Glass. It ended up being a gorgeous blue-green background. I then ran it through my Sizzix with a floral embossing folder.
I added a strip of gold washi tape down the right side of my card base, and then adhered the Distress Ink panel over that. I used some craft foam behind the front panel to give it some dimension and to pop it up some.
I kept the sentiment simple by die cutting a little heart out of vellum, and then stamped on the word "Thanks" with a sentiment from Lawn Fawn's "Love You A Latte" stamp set. I then glued the heart down to the side and then finished the card by adding a few gold sequins.
