Simple Sunday...

Happy Sunday,

Now as Thursdays card was simple it I thought I could go a little more difficult today!  This is still a simple card as it is just layered die its with no foam tape at all!

I simply die cut the background and rose die from Couture creations that I have been using so much and layers them using cosmic shimmer dries clear glue.

I wanted to show today that you can create quick clean and simple cards that are effective just by allowing the die cuts to do the work.

Ingredients:
Couture creations art deco and rose dies
Ivory & Black foundation card
Creative expressions sentiment stamp

Enjoy...

  8. I just love these style of cards It make be simple but I can see lots of pitfalls I'd fall into - like not matting and layering straight I wouldn't be able to achieve the perfect off set for the rose My shadow would look too thick or not enough shadow I'll keep practising though

  10. Eh up John
    Simple but elegant and flat! These days we all want designs we can post easily due to postage costs and so our more delicate creations aren't at the mercy of a heavy handed postie.
    Have a great day.
