As Simple As Can Be

Happy Sunday Craft Lovers,

I made another birthday card and this time my theme is As Simple As Can Be. Once again I combined red, white and blue. I seem to like this three colors combination, though I must start using my orange cardstock, they are really starting to pile up.

What are you plans for the weekend? Any craft projects in mind?

Since its already going to be the end of July, I really need to start getting into the christmas card making mood. I got loads of cards to make, If I don't start now I will be ending up buying again like last year.

As Simple As Can Be

For this simple handmade birthday card, I used a red card as base then I layered it with a white card. I used a flower doily border punch from DoCrafts to punch the white colored card. Oh yes once again this is a 5.5" x 5.5" card. Then I used a blue card as the final layer. For the background of my sentiment I die cut a lighter color blue shade card.

For the added touch I stamped two red flowers and die cut using my Spellbinder's Sapphire. I also used some blue embellishment and blue pearls for the four corners and for the center of the two red flowers.

Until my next post which will be of a different theme...continue to Craft With Love.
