Clean and Simple

There’s a thread going on SCS about clean and simple cards.

Here are a couple of cards in this style using the Lizzie Anne Designs set “L’amour”.

The first card is a tent card. The base of the card is 4 1/4″ x 4 1/4″. The circle extends up but it will still fit in a standard Invitation size envelope.

The image was stamped in Ranger Distress Faded Jeans ink in Bashful Blue CS. I punched it out using a Marvy Giga Scallop Circle punch. I sponged the edge with Faded Jeans ink. The dots were made with a Signo gel pen and a Faber Castell Artist pen.

Stamps: L’Amour – Lizzie Anne Designs

Paper: Papertrey White, Bashful Blue

Ink: Ranger Distress Faded Jeans

Accessories: Sponge, Signo gel pen, Faber Castell Artist pen, Giga Scallop Circle punch

Here’s an easy layout. I added black dots with a Faber Castell Artist pen to the two white and attached them with foam tape. The heart was stamped in Ranger Distress Fired Brick ink. I colored the center of the heart with a Copic marker and added a teeny pearl center to the flower. The heart was then cut out and attached with foam tape.
