Easy Card Recipe
I wasn't feeling too hot Monday and I needed something really simple to make me feel accomplished but without any stress. I worked up this very easy card. It is inspired by the Grid Challenge at Shimelle.com. I think you could CASE this easily with a lot of different stamps - especially those small stamps that are sometimes hard to use.
Tool: 1" circle punch
Paper: 4 Designer papers in small tone-on-tone patterns.
2 solid cardstocks
4 small stamps and 1 greeting stamp
Cut the DSP into 8 - 1 1/4" squares. I used 2 squares of each color.
Stamp images in white cardstock and punch.
Arrange squares on a piece of solid cardstock - 5 1/2" wide by 2 5/8" high.
Add circles with foam squares
Assemble adding twine.
I did a few of these for my OWH box and they lifted my spirits. Creative pursuits always do that.
