Keeping it more simple...

Happy Thursday,

I thought I would share another simple card, this one is easier than yesterdays!

I stamped the poem form the Peony elements clear stamp set in the centre of a piece of coconut white foundation card in watering can archival ink.  I then cut this to a square and stamped the leaves from the set in one corner.

Next I cut a larger square and stamped several more of the elements around this before mounting both panels with layers of baby pink and black.








Using the spellbinders spiral blossom four die I cut tree of the roses in blush and ivory rolled them up and attached them in front of the leaves.


For the large background I cut the New York collection background die designed by Sue Wilson for Creative Expressions twice.  Next I cut these in half and overlapped them to make a square.

As i said its simple but doenst look too simple!

Enjoy...

  36. Hi John. A lovely clean and simple card today. Love the flowers. Did you make them out of felt? That reminds me - I have some felt packed away somewhere, I must see if I can find it and have a play.
