Well, at super lightning speed we are back to Wednesday again which means there is a new challenge over at Addicted to Stamps at More. So, we're back with another theme and this week it's my favourite...
Clean and Simple
We are looking for clean and crisp lines, minimal or no embellishments and lots of 'white' space.
Here is my DT card which is a card I made for one of my good friends for her Big 40 yesterday...
Our Sponsor this week is QKR Stampede and the prize for one lucky winner is 3 free digis!
I started by placing a strip of aqua polka dot patterned paper to the left hand side of my card base. Next I stamped and die cut the balloon. Once the ink was completely dry I stamped the '40' in VersaMark ink and then heat embossed with white embossing powder. Then, on a white cardstock panel I stamped the sentiment vertically to become the string of the balloon before popping the balloon up on 3D foam. The panel was then popped up on the base card using 3D foam strips before adding a few clear gemstones to complete the card.
