Our theme this month is "Just Because." Just because... well, anything! Just because you wanted to create, because you had supplies to use up, or - in my case - because you needed a pile of thank you cards STAT as you're already behind on sending out notes from the holidays!
I made a stack of super-simple thank you cards a few nights ago, like this one - and let me tell you, there's nothing better than being able to crank out a batch of cards in under 10 minutes.
The adorable "Double Take" stamp set has some amazing sentiments in amazing fonts, and each is designed to layer in two colours for a little bit of oomph. Isn't that cool? So easy, too. I used Bermuda Bay and Pool Party for these.
And after that stack of cards was done, I thought to myself that these would be perfect to "step up" for any level of crafter! A newbie with very limited supplies could make the card above, but with a little extra time and effort, we can make this card into something special.
Have two extra minutes? Why not add a base layer, cut the sentiment into a banner, and add a pop of colour with some DSP?
But if you're making one card and you want it to be extra special...
That's an easy fix, too! A little splatter from Gorgeous Grunge, some silver twine, and some extra embellishments and layers make this card something really special. That's the beauty of handmade - it can be as simple or stepped up as you want it to be!
Let's hop on over to Jennifer Frost and see what she has for us today. I can't wait!
Thanks for stopping by!
