Welcome to Create with Connie and Mary’s Creatively Simple Challenge! Each month Mary and I will pick a theme…this month it is “Get Well”, and we each create a simple card every week using that theme!
I used the annual catalog set, Artistically Inked, for today’s Simple Challenge! The flowers and abstract images make one-layer cards pretty easy to make! I use this greeting a LOT when sending off Get Well cards and decided to use it as my focal image.
NOTE: Wow…I blew it! Somehow this greeting from a retired set called Thoughts & Prayers ended up in my Artistically Inked stamp set box. But I still love this card!
- The base is 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 Polished Pink cardstock, scored at 4-1/4 and folded.
- The 4 x 5-1/4 layer of Basic White cardstock was stamped with the watercolor swoosh image in Fresh Freesia Ink in the bottom right and top left. The swirl flower was stamped with Polished Pink Ink and the leaves with Soft Succulent.
- The greeting from retired Thoughts & Prayers stamp set was stamped with Soft Succulent Ink in the center.
- A trio of Iridescent Rhinestones were added to the background.
That’s IT! Not sure I can make it any simpler! Make sure to check out what Mary did this week for her “Get Well” Creatively Simple card over on Create with Connie and Mary! Stay tune next week for another Creatively Simple card!
