Hello everyone! How are we all doing today? It’s Wednesday so we are halfway there people! The best part is I realized today that Monday is a holiday! Three day weekend!! Woo hoo! Today’s post is a Clean and Simple card, although from the supply list it doesn’t look that way. It honestly took me about 25 minutes to come up with and make the card. The base of the card is Whisper White Card Stock. I stamped an image from the Flowering Flourishes Stamp Set in Pool Party and the greeting is from the Curly Cute Stamp Set stamped in Island Indigo. The Quint-Essential Flower is definitely one of my more neglected stamps. I have come up with a clever way to incorporate it more. I stamped it in Island Indigo and then again in Pool Party. Using the 2 3/8″ Scallop Circle Punch I punched them both out. I then used the 1 3/4″ Scallop Circle punch to punch out the Pool Party one. The middle of that piece is punched out with the 1″ Circle Punch and again with the 1/2″ Circle Punch. I assembled the flower using a Shaker Frame for the flower and a Stampin Dimensional for the middle piece. A Vintage Faceted Designer Button with a Basic Jewels Rhinestone finishes of the flower. Using the 2 1/2″ Circle Punch I punched a circle out of the front of the card. I used some SNAIL to adhere the punched circle to the inside and then adhered the flower to that. A few more Basic Jewels Rhinestones complete the card. For a card that is basically just punching and stamping I like the little wow factor that the punched circle gives. As you can see in the pictures when you close it the stamped image continues inside and also makes it easy to see where you can write. I hope that enjoyed today’s card and thanks so much for checking in with me. Don’t forget to leave a comment and have a great day!
