This card is super simple and quick to make. The one on the left was created with a Bermuda Bay card base (cut an 8-1/2″ x 11″ sheet of cardstock in half at 4-1/4″). Then I added a little strip of Kaleidoscope Designer Series Paper (1″ x 4-1/4″) to the center of the card. Using my Perfect Pennants Stamp Set, I stamped the heart in Bermuda Bay (to give that watermark look) and I stamped the greeting in Melon Mambo. Used my handy dandy coordinating Banner Framelits (Bundle it and save 15%) to cut it out and place it in the center with dimensionals, of course! 😉 Oh, how could I forget, I added a little rhinestone too for some bling. You could change the colors around and use different Designer Series Paper and stamp set but all kinds of different cards!!! Quick and Simple!
Now the card on the right was “Stepped Up” a little! I added a layer by making my card base Whisper White and layering the Bermuda Bay onto top (4″ x 5-1/4″) and instead of the heart and rhinestone, I added Candy Dots to the greeting banner! You could keep the heart and add a Candy dot to that too! Endless possibilities! Simple cards are just as cute as the more detailed cards so don’t always feel like you need to have 15 layers and 25 embellishments on every card! I hope you try out this fabulous design layout and feel free to post it in the comments below!
