Another Simple Card


Try, try and try again.  Do you get those creative days when a card you are trying to design just does not come together.  You have your main focas but you are trying to match it with a background you like but it just does not look right, then you give up and finally say to yourself, yep I will have to make a simple card (CAS), just a plain white background with your focal image.  Yep, took me forever to make up my mind.   I want to be different in my designs, but sometimes it just does not work out.

But anyways this is the final design that came to be.  Click photo for details.


All these photos, which one to share!  Do you have that choice too.  I just want a cam that will take a good shot on the first go and the lighting, in my house, do not even ask.

Anyways I do my best.

I enjoyed the end result of this card.  I used one of my new embossing folders, ferns on the base card and colored in pencil for a light color on the background.  A lovely purple ribbon across the card with three frames.  I reversed the frames, made the centers pop up.  With nature in mind, i punched out butterfly, flower and draganfly and made them dimensional by punching out again and heat bossing them with leaf opaque embossing powder, just a sprinkle look.  Added some bling and glitter for some shine.

Finally a sentiment that relates to nature and there you have a simple card. 

It was worth the effort to complete the card that i started with frames.

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges :-
