Simple Sunday

Happy Sunday,

Firstly thanx to all of you for the lovely comments about my craft studio I was blown away again by the positive comments you all leave!  To answer a few questions yes we have some heating in there, no we haven't fully insulated as yet but still have a few jobs to do re that!

back to today and a quite simple card for simple Sunday.  I die cut the largest of the delicate daisies form Sue Wilson in the centre of a hand cut pale blue square card and stamped the sentiment from Creative Expressions underneath.  Next I added a white die cut flower in the space created and, using a small circle of card, secured the white flower on the back.  Then all i needed to do was fold out the petals and add a large pearl in the centre.

It really is that simple but, I hope you agree, effective.

  10. Yep, beautiful in its simplicity - well done John. I think it would also work for a sympathy card, which are some of the hardest to make.

  11. Yep completely agree very simple but soooo effective xx GailT xx

  12. Beautiful and def my kinda card Simplw but so so effective This card would suit so many occasions for me and the friends I make cards for However the 'small circle of card' has confused me a bit Which bit of 'back' is it stuck to?

  13. Hi John,
    fab card today.
    I agree it doesn't need any thing else, but I am a big fan of the busier cards, as I can never stop my self putting something else on a card. lol.
