Simple Style


This was the simplest card I have made in a long time!! I hope you think it is worth the share :) I had to make a couple quick thank you's and I turned to the new Elements of Style,
in the Summer Mini, for the beautiful floral spray. My first one, which I didn't photo, I did this same way but using my Aquapainter decided to color in. Yup it was pretty, but I just liked the look and simplicity of it just the way it is. And boy was it ever easy to reproduce a couple of these :) Don't think this photo does the embossing justice, so you'll just have to kreate one yourself!!;) Here's how...

* Ran a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock through the Big Shot and Scallop Square Die
* Inked up my image from Elements of Style in VersaMark and sprinkled on some Gold Embossing Powder. Using my Heat Tool, melted the gold to a rich beautiful embossed image.
* My go to set for thank you sentiments, Thank You Kindly, also got inked in VersaMark with the same Gold Embossed as above.
* And why not add that pretty bird? Inked in VersaMark, stamped on scrap Very Vanilla and given the gold embossed treatment. For a precise cut I turn to my Paper Snips, cut out and then placed on a dimensional.

Thats IT!! Can you believe it? And if you are not partial to this simple look, at this point it is very easy to 'color' in with whatever you want, Blenders, Aquapainter, chalks, markers...
