I am always needing cards to let people know I am thinking of them! But many times I find myself taking forever on a card and then I only have one after quite some time in the craft room. I decided I needed to bust out some clean and simple cards to build up my stash again.
Whenever I want to go clean and simple, to any degree, I have a few favorite challenges that I go to for inspiration. This time, I went to Less is More and their current challenge is “Shades of Blue”
I actually have a hard time thinking of using blue on my cards! It’s just not a color I reach for first. That was the thing I liked about this challenge – it was going to push me to use blue! It’s why I like challenges. They get me thinking outside the box 🙂
So here’s my simple card
My layout and idea was also inspired by the challenge over at Fusion
Kitty, butterfly, sketch. I included them all. I flipped the sketch, though, and made it a vertical card. And the rectangles along the edge of that sketch? I used a dry emboss folder and did a pattern instead, in order to keep in more clean
I did my shades of blue in a few simple sequins, in the 2 little butterflies, and in the sentiment. I used stamps from W+9 and the embossing folder is by Darice
Thank you for stopping by today – and consider yourself hugged!
