Friends....

It's Wednesday and we are half way through and just a few more days till the Imagine winner is announced.  So make sure to leave those comments!
Today's card was super simple (just the way I like them)!  I used a bit of scrap paper and ribbon for the color, a stamp from CTMH, and one little gem!

I used a ek success punch for the fun scalloped circle--save the punch as we will use it on the envelope.
I used a matching CTMH ink and a fun gem for the sentiment.  I also added a yellow contrast inside to really set the card off.
This ribbon was so easy to attach.  I just cut the paper in two pcs, attached the bottom section, used a liquid tack to stick the ribbon down, and then added the top portion of the pattern paper. punch, then stamp--finished!
I used the punch out on the envelope as and accent--waste not want not!
I hope you have a great day and we will see you back here on Thursday for another fun project.

Make it a great one-

  2. Great 'simple' card Bryan! Sometimes the 'simple' cards can be more challenging because with just a few design elements, each detail matters so much more to the overall design. You have to be so intentional with every choice you make. So, bravo! I love the gem you used on the sentiment and how you inserted the ribbon into the paper!
