A Graphic Thank You


I have a super speedy post today. I have a busy day and I still have to fit on packing for my few days in London at some point! Ahh! Too much to do!!

So today's card is for the Paper Player's challenge and its a colour challenge. 

This colour scheme seemed quite masculine to me and for some reason I thought it'd be neat to do a very clean graphic style card with lots of text. 

Stamp Set: Lots of Thanks, Fabulous Phrases, Banner Blast
Ink: Marina Mist, Crushed Curry, Smoky Slate
Cardstock: Whisper White, Smoky Slate

As I was gathering the bits together to make this card I was tempted to make a birthday card however I though that I'd do a thank you card. I thought this makes a great masculine thank you card, especially as I really needed one to give our neighbour who very kindly repaired our dividing fence!

I thought the ampersands and the stars just added that little extra touch to the card and fill in and break up all that text nicely! 

I'd originally wanted to stamp the entire area with thank you's  but as it was progressing I decided it might look TOO much and possibly loose the impact by having too much text. The white space around the stamping just gives the text some space to breath! 

Switching up the colour combo would give you a more feminine look too! 

I have some scheduled posts while I'm away so please do check back daily for more creative inspiration and I'll be back with my London exploits at the weekend! 

Happy Stampin',
