Clean and Simple

It is a concept that eludes me most of the time, but I needed a couple of Thank You cards recently and thought I’d give it a go. I like the way they turned out and made extras to have on hand.

This one is stamped with a Rubber Stampede leafy branch stamp using Shabby Shutters ink, I think. The sentiment is from Papertrey. I just love that set – Signature Greetings – and I wish they would come out with more of them. There are only a couple in the set that I use a lot and I’d really like some different verses. They do have a Christmas set but more all occasion verses would be wonderful.


This stamp is from Stampendous and I used Memento Cantaloupe ink. I used Papertrey white card stock for the card base on both cards, because it’s nice and heavy.


I did it – one layer cards! I am impressed with myself. Maybe I will try some more clean and simple designs soon.
