Card Making Quickie 17 – Simple and Elegant Greetings Card

Another quick, but never-the-less beautiful card today. This time with a clean stamped background and die cut lettering detail.

In today’s Post I will be sharing with you this card that I made with Impression Obsession stamps and Julie Hickey Designs character dies.

It’s a short video but I have included all of the stages for you so, grab that brew and hit play…

    Hi John. What a beautiful card. As you say, so simple and elegant. I’m with Gypsy541 on this, I always think I’m going to make the next project simple and easy, then I start adding to and adding to until my card is covered. Trouble is, other peoples cards look great when there isn’t much on them but mine just look empty. Kath x

    Lovely, I am quite envious, I’m no good at simple. I can start off simple, then it grows, and grows, until it’s within an inch of its life. I seem to have to cover almost every square inch. How are you doing? xx

    I love it John.
    A foundation open to so many variations depending on the recipient. Would work as bright and modern for the young at heart, and easily adapted for the chaps in your life
    Thanks for sharing
