Clean and Simple Card Class

I signed up to take the Clean and Simple Card Class taught by Jennifer McGuire and several others.  I am such a slackard and have not done one card until today and this took me several hours to make - I stuggle with Clean and Simple.  The cards look naked to me - I thought this class would help me - I will just have to get busy.  Gee too bad I have to work. 

The lesson today was to make a white card - YIKES - I made one this last fall that I really liked.  I looked through my paper - I wanted the Bazzill pin dot paper in white - I couldn't find it - I know I hae some somewhere.  So I took a piece of textured cardstock (very subtle) and ran it through an embossing folder.  The pink mat and Penny Black floral sticker are each pop dotted to add some dimension to the card.  I added the orange twine for some contrast and to also add some balance to the Hero Arts sentiment.  The centers of the flowers needed something so I added some pearls to the center - gee - should it have been bling - or maybe some clear Stickles - but it is pearls because you know if I tried to remove them I would tear the sticker.  I also cute the size of the card down some to it was more equal distance on all 4 sides.  Also rounded the upper right corner. 

I also am entering this card in the Moxie Fab challenge embossing/debossing challenge in honor of their special edition on Tools - fun issue. 

Whew I made one card for the class - maybe I have opened a flood gate.


  1. This turned out very nice, Barb. I keep wanting to add at least one extra layer in the class!! I like your pink to contrast with the white. It is a good class with lots of ideas, but they are incredibly simple designs! I like what you did here!

  2. Fun colors! Thanks for playing along with the CPS Anniversary!
