Super Simple Card

Super Simple Card

And yet it took me over one hour to make it! I tried combining Kristina’s Color Inspiration #37 with Natasha’s Fall-To Layout #24, and wanted to keep the card clean and simple.

The flower was stamped with Pumpkin Pie Craft ink and clear embossed. I colored it in with Baja Breeze ink, then punched it out with a 1-1/4″ circle punch. I punched out two scallop circles, one in Old Olive and one in Whisper White card stock and adhered them together after punching 1/16″ holes in the Old Olive scallops.

I’m really happy the Sweet Always Designer Series Paper will also be in the Spring-Summer 2009 Idea Book & Catalog! The colors and patterns are great, and so is its coordinating stamp set, Always.

Thanks for stopping by!

    I know exactly what you mean about simple taking so much time. I participated in a challenge called 10 minute Monday. The card took me almost an hour to make!

    I really like how you put these colors together and the clean look of your card. Great job!
