It was my turn to set the theme for the Crafty Cardmakers Spotlight Challenge this week so Let's get Sentimental is the theme I've chosen - it's about making the sentiment do all the work and keeping it as the main focus of your project.
For my card I wanted to make a big deal out of a very simple sentiment and to make it the main focus. I stamped the Thank You sentiment and used a Nestie die to cut it and the backing card. I also stamped the other words and cut out the individual letters, inked round them and stuck them onto the cardstock, making a pennant out of the first two. I used backing paper from DCWV, the bird was cut out from another paper from the same set and the flowers and brads were from my stash. The thank you stamp is an old retired Stampin Up one and the rest of the words are from a Hero Arts 'Great Big' set.
