simple, simple Sunday...

Happy Sunday,

Todays card is very simple although it may not look it!  I simply embossed the Couture Creations A4 embossing folder Borders Tags and backgrounds in Blush card.  I then split the background in 2 and added them on either side of an A4 piece of card folded into a gatefold.

I added a tag stamped and cut from the same embossing folder and added some of the delicate daisies in pink and white.  Finally I inked the whole piece with Fired Brick distress ink and finished.  Looks complicated but it's really simple!

  1. How impressive that something quite simple can be so striking - gorgeous !


  2. Great idea for a reasonably quick card John. And today I can see yesterday's card better, so it must have been the sunlight behind me yesterday that made it hard to see on my monitor. It looks good, now that I can see it, LOL

  5. Hoist the Jolly Roger!
    Doesn't look at all complicated matey. Simple but pretty, especially with the flowers but I would lose the ribbon (or is it a bow?) personally.
    Nearly home time now eh?
    Have a great day.

  20. I really like the that this card is quite striking yet simple to do. So often I overthink things and just make a mess but you just pull simple things together and hey presto you get a touchdown! Not sure I fully understand the ribbon though-is it there to hold the tag or to tie the two sides together?
