Clean and Simple

Happy Saturday All. It is cooler here today so we are off for a longer walk than the last few days when it has been too hot to go far.

At Addicted to Stamps and More it is CAS week and as I needed an anniversary card I made it in this style.

Always great inspiration from the team there so even if you haven't tried this style before you will be guided by them

I have had this aperture card for a while so added some nice yellow, texture paper to fill the circle and stamped straight onto it. The bottom of the card I added texture with a Cuttlebug folder.

Not sure where the digi stamp came from but it was free and I have used it often. I coloured it to match with Promarkers. Added a bit of an edge with Promarkers to the circle and wish I hadn't really--too late now :(

Hope your day goes well

Love Chrissie x

  8. Such a pretty card, Chrissie. I really like the colors you used, and the embossing is wonderful. I like the way you decorated around the circle...it leads right into the flower which is really pleasing to the eyes.
