Simplicity

My idea of a great handcrafted card is that of simplicity.  



  • Find a stamp you like along with a few colors of coordinating card stock and let your creative juices flow!  Coordinating card stock and ink is made simple by Stampin' Up!
  • The stamp set I chose is "Wetlands" by Stampin' Up!
  •  Try experimenting with a new technique.  A quick and easy technique is to use drywall mesh, an acrylic block and ink to stamp a background for your card!  I cut three 5" strips of the drywall mesh and layer them together to give the mesh some dimension.  Ink it up and randomly stamp the mesh "stamp" on your card stock to give the background some interest. 
Here is what I put together.  Let me know what you think:)
