Thanks! From the bottom of my 💛

Big sentiments are awesome! These new big sentiments from the new "Happy Everything" stamp set are great for any card!  Along with these big words, are smaller sentiments to match.  Check out this fun, cheery card made to brighten your day!
 
 
The highlight to this card is actually the dry embossing using the "Mermaid Tails" stencil. First, I used it to color the background.  Next, I held the stencil over the paper and used the embossing mat under the paper. to create a raised image with the stencil (see sample below without ink).
 
  
This is another great way to make use of your stencils.  And remember, your stencils can be flipped over to make different patterns (unless there are words or numbers on them).  
  
  
I then cut this out at and used a border die to create an angle.  I used the same border die to cut out a layer in black card stock.  I then cut out white card stock for the bottom layer and stamped the large "Thanks" using the inks used above in blending and the smaller sentiment in black.  Now, to add a little more dimension, I used some foam tape under the dry embossed layer and adhered it all to the black card base.
  
Thank YOU for following along and I hope you try this fun technique with any of the cool stencils at Sassy & Crafty.  And if you try this technique... make sure to post it on our Sassy & Crafty Inspiration Club Facebook Page.  I'd love to see your take on this crafty look.
  
Thanks again and have a Sassy & Crafty day!
