So I found another challenge to try--I love how fun this one is!! I also love that this is a "CASe" Case, which is a Clean and Simple Case--and that is probably my favorite style!! I've had fun trying out some new challenges and I hope you are enjoying watching the creative process unfold. I knew things were going well because of the unbelieveable mess I created in my office making this "Clean and Simple" card! :)
So I created the background with the Thank You. In case you are wondering where that came from, I actually cut it apart from the other part of the stamp. It is from the set, One Big Meaning, one of my favorite greeting sets! I started with a light Smoky Slate Thank You (x2) and then I changed to Basic Gray and finally Basic Black.
This is the whole stamp--you can see how I've cut it apart, but what I love is that I goes right back together and can be used as it was intended with both parts of the stamp!!
As you can see, this is not the only stamp I did that with in this set!! I love how it adds versatility to the set!!
The only thing you want to be careful with is that you don't under or over cut the foam--go straight through it so that the foam is even on both sides of the cut--not at an angle. I use my old Craft and Rubber Scissors. Any Short blade scissors will work, just be careful!
The flower is from the set, Flower Patch and I stamped it twice (offsetting it the second time) in Watermelon Wonder. The petals below are in Smoky Slate to keep it a nice and simple card.
I added a cute center design in black and jazzed things up with a new Iced Rhinestone Embellishment. The flower is fussy cut, but it is pretty easy to do!
