Thank you Splatter

You know how you can tell when you really like something? When you can look at it over and over again without getting sick of it. I bought literally a ton of ocean blue cardstock to make my wedding invitations over 2 years ago. I still have literally a ton leftover that I will often use to create cards because I still LOVE the color! Below is one example of said cardstock (which you will be seeing again; I guarantee it).

The banner banner strips are created from various patterned papers, vellum, and solid paper that I added some blue stamping ink. The "Thanks" was selectively stamped from a discontinued American Crafts clear stamp set "Thanks". (Selective stamping is when you cover up part of the stamp image - like with masking tape or post-its. Then you ink up the stamp, remove the covered portion and stamp onto your project so that you only transfer a portion of the entire image. This is a great way to really make the most of all your stamps.) The background white splatter was done using watered down white acrylic paint and the non-brush end of a paintbrush.

Materials: Sturdy ocean blue cardstock, patterned paper, vellum, foam dimensionals, discontinued American Crafts clear "thanks" stamp set.
Size: Card is just shy of standard A1 or 4bar card size 4 3/4" x 3 1/4". Envelope is the standard A1/4bar size of 5 1/8" x 3 5/8"

Thanks for stopping by!
