Clean & Simple Sketch

May 10, 2012

You may have noticed that I do love to make cards that have lots of white.  I love the clean look and have been inspired greatly by Mary Brown who makes some absolutely stunning cards in this style.  Therefore the sketches at  Clean and Simple are ones that always appeal to me and this week was no exception.

I used embossed Whisper White card stock using the Framed Tulips Embossing Folder and attached it to scored and folded Concord Crush card stock.  I stamped “happy birthday wishes” from the Petite Pairs stamp set using Concord Crush ink.  I stamped the flower from the Array of Sunshine stamp set using Concord Crush ink onto Whisper White card stock three times.  I cut smaller sections from each stamped flower and attached them back together using dimensionals.  I stamped the leaf branch onto Whisper White card stock using Pear Pizzazz card stock and cut them out.  I snipped the small leaf from the branch on each one.  I attached the leaves onto the panel with the greeting and attached the flower over the top.   This piece was then attached to Concord Crush card stock and then to the card front.  Lastly I added a Basic Rhinestone to the centre of the flower.

I love how this looks and I really love the Concord Crush/Whisper White combo.  So, what do you think?

Bye for now, Kris.

    Kris, you have totally nailed the CAS look and love the Concird Crush and White …. another one of those very neglected sets that need see ink before they retire!
