Each month I celebrate my Team’s successes and mail out appreciation cards – as soon as I saw the brand new stamp set Marquee Messages in the Catalog I knew it would be perfect for just these cards…
I used it for my June team appreciation cards and this is the card that I made…that large central marquee stamp really is AWESOME!!!
You will find a link to the printable/downloadable Project Sheet detailing all measurements & instructions on how to make this card below…
This is a very unusual card for me to make…can you see why? Because I didn’t use ANY dimensionals – gasp – I use Dimensionals on everything I make and so it was quite the challenge to resist LOL!!!
But I love how it turned out – I think with the color & busy-ness of this card, it doesn’t need add to make it pop – that central panel pops all by itself!
Sarah’s Tip – I did find that I got a much neater and smoother colored look when I went over each bit two times with my Markers – but boy I miss alcohol based markers and hope they come back soon – they are just sooo smooth!
I also did something on this card that I haven’t done for a long while – paper piecing – and I had forgotten how much I like it! The brown arrow and green awesome banner and both cut out using Paper Snips – if you don’t have these handy dandy scissors in your stash then you need them – they making fussing cutting SO much easier!
I also cut out those two little brown stars and check out the finishing touches – I added a little sparkly Rhinestone Jewel to the center of each – LOVE how that little embellishment adds a whole bunch to it…
