Simple Thinking of You

I've been seeing a lot of really quick cards using punches of circles or squares and patterned paper. I thought I'd make my own patterned paper using the Damask and Reverse Damask, as well as a sentiment from Open to Love. I didn't happen to have a square punch handy, but squares are quick cuts. I cut a long strip (1-3/8'' wide) and started stamping the background stamps on it, then trimming each colour to a 1-3/8'' square. I mounted the squares on some saffron paper, then added my sentiment. I also rounded the corners of the card base, just to add a little something extra to the card. This layout is SUPER quick, and can work for any theme.

Stamps: Damask, Reverse Damask, Open to Love
Ink: Brown, Moss Green (colorbox), Paprika (versafine), Elegant Eggplant (su!)
Paper: White, So Saffron
Accessories, etc.: corner rounder

  1. Very cute, Natasha! I love it!

  2. LOVE this! I have been on the fence about this set with the pos/neg images. Your amazing card just about puts me over the edge, and over my budget! Wonderful job! You are so creative!

  3. Great clean lines yet has an elegance to it.

  4. I just love this approach to the classic and so today...great look and certainly out of the box. Great Job!

  5. I love this!!!! I don't have that set, but I do have a stamp that I think this might do well with. I'm going to try one like this - you're such an inspiration!
