Sunflower Corner

I needed several Thank You cards, and I wanted to do so quickly.  So this idea came to me.

I used a stencil by The Crafter's Workshop (You are my Sunshine).

  • I colored it with distress inks and blender brushes
  • then went over it with Gel Gloss embossing paste to give it a raised surface
  • added a black border with a thin sharpie
  • embossed the sentiment (I'm not sure what company)

I was able to make several within minutes - not including the time needed for the embossing paste to dry.

I'm putting this into the following challenges:

1.   AAA CAS Game #146 - Made in Minutes . It was definitely made in minutes and has a summery image.

3.  And Elliebelle's Corner - where This Month's Theme is Sunshine, Sunflowers or Add Something Yellow

4. And the Mod Squad Challenge  Layer Me Not – "The challenge this week is to use no layers on your card front!  This is pretty much self explanatory. Your card front must have no layers, but only the card base. You MUST have NO layers.

Since this is a one-layer card, it qualifies for this too.  

That's all for now.  Thanks for visiting!  I hope you are having a good week.
