Clean and Simple

I actually had a chance to complete a card! I do love these Clean and Simple cards. And, to go along with my idea of rating items as Frugal, Frivolous or Foolish, this card was definitely Frugal. It was done in about 10 minutes and the easy techniques make it look more complex than it really is.

The card is done on a Colonial White 6 x 6 base. The background is distressed and sponged in Olive ink. I attached the DP (CTMH's new Bella pattern). The stamp is from the new Friends to the End stamp set that matches the Bella DP. I inked the stamp with Olive and then lightly stamped it on scrap. I rolled the edges in Smokey Plum and stamped it above the DP. I repeated this step 3 times and then attached the ribbon. Lastly, I stamped the sentiment in Smokey Plum.

It felt good to get a card done!! I am also working on that scrapbook I mentioned in my last post too and want to get a page done today. For Now, Happy Crafting!

Your font size and lack of margins in the dialogue part of your blog throws me.

However, I took a peek at - My Thought on Photography 1/6/09 - and thought that the tips were good and the examples were fantastic.

Snapping out,
