Mini Slimline Thanks Card

  Hello to all you awesome paper crafter's. So happy to see that you stopped by.

For today's card I decided to try the Spotlight technique. I had never tried it. So here is my try at it.

I love that this technique is so easy. I should have tried this way before now.

The flower image is from a set by Stampin Unicorn called Small Beginnings. They are located in the U.K.

This is my first time using this stamp. I love flowers and I thought it would be a good one to try this technique.

Stamped the image again on another piece of cardstock and colored only the one flower with alcohol markers. Punched it out using a few circle punches from Stampin Up.

The Thanks is an older stamp from S.U. and was given to me with a bunch of other loose stamps in a plastic container. So not sure what set it comes from.

You can't tell but I added some Wink of Stella to the center of the flower. To finish the card off I added some yellow satin ribbon. 

Have you ever made a card using the spotlight technique? If not you should. Great for when you need a quick card. 

So that's it for me today. Would love for you to leave me a comment. 

Blessings to you all. Have a great day!
