Clean and simple cards

Today I decided to make a clean and simple card. I usually love to layer patterned paper but I wanted to challenge myself to do something a little more simple. I love how it turned out.

I used a die from Simon Says Stamp called “Sunflower Frame” and cut it from white cardstock 3 times. I then adhered those layers together. I then used some distress oxide inks and colored a piece of white cardstock and then cut the die again.

I used some patterned paper for the background and glued the flower on to that. Then I paper pieced the petals. I glued it on to a white panel and then on to a white cardbase. I was so tempted to add more patterned paper to the background but I liked how elegant it looked with just the white.

I stamped “Always here for you” on some black cardstock and heat embossed it with white embossing powder. I then adhered it to the card.

Feeling of thanks

Despite all that is going on in the world and the challenges we all face in our daily lives, there are always things to be thankful for. This is something I have needed to be reminded of a lot lately as we are facing a lot of trials. So I made this simple card today.

I started with a white card base and then added a layer of kraft cardstock. I then embossed some white cardstock.

I cut out “thank you” in white card stock and then its shadow in kraft cardstock and layered those together.

I adhered everything together and that finished the card. I really like its simplicity and I love kraft and white together.
