Welcome to Create with Connie and Mary’s second Creatively Simple Challenge! Each month Mary and I will pick a theme…this month it is “Hello” and we each create a simple card every week using that theme!
I used Stampin’ Up!’s Nature’s Harvest for my simple card today. I love the colors of Soft Suede and Very Vanilla together, and the unexpected pop of Bumblebee color! I made these (with the word Welcome) for my new team members this month!
- The base is 4-1/4 x 11 Soft Suede cardstock, scored at 5-1/2 and folded.
- The 4 x 5-1/4 layer of Very Vanilla was stamped with the flower from Nature’s Harvest in Soft Suede Ink in bottom right.
- Using the Soft Suede Marker, draw a pool of ink on plastic, then add water. Use the AquaPainter to pick up the watered down ink and tap to splatter the ink in the background.
- Cut a 3/4 x 2-3/4 strip of Harvest Meadow Designer Paper in the Bumblebee print, cut end at an angle, and adhere to front.
- Cut a 1/2 x 1-1/4 piece of Soft Suede cardstock, stamp the word Hello from Create with Friends stamp set in Soft Suede Ink. Add to front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
- Tie a bow in gold Simply Elegant trim and add next to greeting with a Mini Glue Dot.
Love the simplicity of this card, but it is still elegant! Make sure to check out what Mary did this week for her “Hello” Creatively Simple card over on Create with Connie and Mary! Stay tune next week for another Creatively Simple card!
