Simple and Sweet
Some people can load a card with cardstock, ribbon, buttons, brads, and punches and even more make a really cute card. That isn't me. I try to make a card with a lot of stuff on it and it looks like a little kid's work of art (you know how little kids will have a pretty painting and then decide to just mix the colors right on top and "ruin" the picture?) I come from more of the simple is better philosophy. (Although I have been known to look at a card and say what would Jami or Taylor add to this ;) ) This card I am sharing with you all today is a LOT more simple than I would normally make, but it was a make and take for a class/workshop where the customers (who were mostly beginners) made 4 projects so I needed to keep them really simple. The other projects were more involved and used ribbon, paper piercing, tearing, etc, but this one was just kind of plain looking. They LOVED this card!
