Simply Put

I really like the challenges on 365 Cards. Often, these are cards that I can make and the challenge is interesting to boot. This time, for Day 265, 365 Cards has a challenge called, "Simply Put." This is one patterned paper, one embellishment and one sentiment. Sophie, one of their design team members put together a lovely card, all red and white with a lovely snowflake, so it makes you, let's do this.

Can you believe this was hard for me? I'm a simple, clean cut kind of crafter but I've learned to add embellishments here and there to make the card "sing" so to speak. So, to do this, I was like, ugh, it's naked! (lol!) I simply adhered paper to the white cardstock, added a candy cane embellishment and a sentiment ticket (from Allissa Paper Town). It's as simple as that.

But I do hope you like the simplicity of it and check out 365 Cards - there's something to do everyday. Don't you love that?

Hi Terry, this card definitely 'sings' to me, the pink candy cane paper is stunning and so is the candy cane itself...the sentiment is the perfect finish :) Donna x
