Punched Flower Thank You
Have you noticed the card making world seems to be moving toward simpler, cleaner designs? I'm kind of liking that. Sometimes the more elaborate, multi-layered beauties just seem like--well, too much. That doesn't mean I don't like to use patterned paper, and lots of layers, and mega embellishments. But sometimes it's just refreshing to make something simple. Besides, some of those bulky, multi-layered cards can cost a fortune to mail and who knows if they arrive at their destination as pristine as when you mailed them, even if you pack them in bubble envies. I can just see the recipient opening a card and thinking, "hmmm, wonder what this was supposed to be?" Know what I mean?
Anyway, here's a little thank you that's clean and simple, and kind of fun. I used a flower die to cut out the flower shape from a piece of white card stock slightly smaller than the card base, then stamped the corresponding flower on the actual card base. After stamping the stems, I poked two tiny holes next to one of them and tied on baker's twine. Then it was just a matter of stamping the sentiment and mounting the die cut layer with dimensionals. Easy peasy.
Ok, that's it for now. It's your turn to get inky.
By the way, all the supplies used here are from PaperTrey, except the twine.
