These cards are all about the sentiments. Use bold sentiments as the focus and design element of a card.
This is as close as I get to clean & simple cards. I used the bold typography of the Happy Yay Hey Backgrounds as the focus of the cards. I blended ink to give a rainbow ombre effect. Using a stamp positioned is key. I put each color down on it's own, stamping it and then cleaning it off. I did that with each color having colors overlap as I go. I then stamped the whole thing again with VersaMark ink and clear heat embossed the large sentiment.
I couldn't just leave it there. I thought they needed a little something. I splattered a little gold acrylic paint on the panels. I wiped it off the sentiments as they are heat embossed.
Each card panel was cut down to 4 x 5.25 and mounted on a black 4.25 X 5.5 panel and added to a top folding note card. I added some flat Shimmer and Shine sequins from trinity stamps. The sentiment strip is from Sentiment Label Block white heat embossed on black CS.
The Sentiment strip on this card is from Simple Sayings.
This design is a good one to mass produce and build your stash. Simple design and not a lot of bulk. So look at your bolder sentiments they can be your main design element.
