Clean & Simple Class – Day 1

I’m already a day behind! BUT I was able to do all 3 sketches today – yay! So maybe I’ll stay only a day behind 🙂

This is my first card. I did cheat a bit. I stamped the background over the entire card base – no masking. Then after I punched out the flowers, I backed that corner with some plain card stock. I had to add the bling – the card just didn’t feel done without it.


The second card is my favorite of the three. One day I’ll figure out how to take better pictures!

I started by picking the colors. I knew I needed a good poppin’ combo with this simple layout.

I like to keep my cards somewhat flat – since 95% of my cards go in the mail – so instead of a real button, I die-cut the button.

I’m actually pretty happy with how this final card turned out. I’m normally not really good at picking out a color scheme that involves more than a couple colors, lol. I picked out paper first and then just did my best to match it.

I bought this stamp set just for this image – it is my favorite cupcake image. It was actually quite fun piecing it all together.

Thanks for taking a peek!
