Well…as easy as my card looks, it certainly didn't come together quickly! I started off in a completely different direction and tore up several layers before I settled on this one. Still not what I wanted, but I needed to get something up here on my blog! And…over an hour on one card is WAY too much for me! lol!
I must be WAY overthinking this stamp set, because I didn't find it easy to use. I tried cutting it out…nope…fall colors…nope. I finally just grabbed a couple of the new In Colors, Raspberry Ripple and Midnight Muse along with Very Vanilla. Then put it together.
The base card is Raspberry Ripple and I used the new Fancy Fan Impressions Folder on the left side of the front. I added the strip of Midnight Muse Chevron pattern from Comfort Cafe Designer Paper for the front. I cut a Midnight Muse layer for the Very Vanilla, then decided to put it at an angle for a little variety. The Very Vanilla is popped up on the front. For a little bling, I used a couple Pearls up in the corner. Simple elegance? I don't know! lol! I hope the rest of my day is more productive than this morning's card because I have a LOT to do working on my Create projects! I finished my Preview Project last night…you'll see it next week. And, I must say it turned out CUTE!!!
