Keeping Your Handmade Cards Simple!
Lately, I’ve been feeling uninspired to be creative. Every time I sit down to craft, I seem to overthink the card!
After a couple of failed attempts at making a card that felt “right”, I finally asked myself, “What is the simplest thing I can do?”
I’ve been playing with the Lighthearted Leaves stamp set and the Into the Woods designer series papers. I absolutely love this stamp set. The sentiments are wonderful and I truly love the graphic feel of the leaves.
Here is what I came up with…
One simple piece of white card stock, two ink colors, a little linen thread and a rhinestone.
What I love about this card is that it just goes to show beginning card makers that you don’t need a ton of supplies to make beautiful cards that you will be proud to send. A few simple supplies to get started, a little inspiration and you’re good to go!
I do have to say…my first two attempts were pitiful and I don’t mind sharing them with you. Maybe tomorrow when I look at them I’ll know just what to do to make them just right!
I really love this Rich Razzleberry cotton ribbon. It’s yummy to touch and soft and pliable to create bows and knots with. How about the corners on the orange mat? That’s a new corner punch in the holiday catalog!
