Flower Thank You Card

Hi Everyone! Just a simple card. . .well, sort of. Simple in that there's nothing much to it except maybe the cut up flower. Other than that, it was just basically laying out the design.

I did add CTMH Liquid Glass (similar to SU Crystal Effects) on the "special" sentiment. You can't see it in the picture but there's a clear 3D film over the sentiment that looks sort of like clear plastic which was created with Liquid Glass. In person it looks more like a epoxy type of sticker.

There's so many products out there that can add a little something to your card that makes it stand out a little more. Those little things can sometimes make a whole lot of difference to how your card looks.

I used my new Inkadinkado stamp set that I bought from JoAnns. I love the stamps. . .one, because the images are pretty; 2, the stamps are acrylic and easy to store, and finally because they were inexpensive!! Okay, the inexpensive part is the most important part of it. Not that the stamps were "cheap" quality. . .just cheap cost!! Yay!

I have so many stamps that I need to use but I'm slowly working my way through them. I'm trying not to use stamps that I feel like using at the moment because I have a tendency towards particular types of images and leave the others neglected. I now "grab" and "create" without really looking at the image. Whatever I grab, I use. You see how that works. . .try it out, maybe you'll end up using some of your neglected stamps rather than just using your favorites. . .

Wow, I really like the last two cards you have made. THe colours and layering and cut out flower are exceptional. Thank you for all the shopping tips also!I agree and think that we "crafters"get gauged on certain things at the craft store that we could probably find somewhere else! TFS
