It’s the beginning of a new year, which is always exciting. This week on Less is More Challenge Blog, the theme is New Beginnings – which is very fitting for a new year. To keep it simple, I have a Clean and Simple card that’s just perfect for a quick go to simple one layer card.
I’m also adding this to the Clean Slate challenge at Virginia’s View Challenge.
I did end up popping up one of the flowers for emphasis, but it would also look just perfect stamped directly onto the main layer.
Here you see Scribble Flowers by Simon Says Stamp in some fun bright colors – Picked Raspberries, Mustard Seed and Mowed Lawn Distress Inks by Ranger. For the black, I used Memento Jet Black Ink.
I masked off the buds (the beginning) and stamped the leaves. For the popped up flower I glued on the middle and leaves, but they would also work perfectly masked as well if stamping on a single layer. Okay – I know I deviated from the true One Layer Rule, but I just felt like it on this one – forgive me!
I always make a ton of birthday cards at the beginning of each year – how about you? This one is great as a quick and easy go to simple card that will brighten anyone’s day. I hope you loved it as much as I did!
