Super Simple

The holidays are the one time I'm totally on board with making simple cards. I think getting a simply elegant card amidst the frenzy of holiday preparations is calming and a reminder to stop and enjoy the moment.

Today's card is super simple and took about 10 minutes, including deciding on colors and layout! I cut a strip of Pearlized white cardstock, started by stamping the sentiment in Not Quite Navy and then surrounded it with four different snowflakes from the Snowflake Splendor set, stamped randomly in Not Quite Navy and Baja Breeze. This layer is matted on Not Quite Navy and I added a vanilla taffeta ribbon that I dyed with Copic markers. The base of the card is Baja Breeze that has been embossed with the Snowflakes Cuttlebug folder. I finished off with some Stardust Stickles on the flakes for a little sparkle.

Hope you're having a fabulous day! I'll be back tomorrow with this week's Our Creative Corner challenge.

  6. Looks alarmingly like the Christmas card I worked on all week! I'm keeping the colors, but tweaking my layout today.... on mine, the CB embossing was too much.... Hopefully I'll get them DONE this weekend!

  9. You're right Julee, super simple but yet very elegant! I like the idea you had to colour the ribbon with copic markers or the copic reinkers? TFS
