Stamp something clean and simple

The Stamp Something challenge this week asks you to case a card of Lauren's and also use her style which is Clean and Simple!
A real challenge for me, although I love the look I can't ever seem to achieve it or know when to stop! I saw this sweet little card on Lauren's blog and decided it was the one!
I have had a mojo-less morning and alread ditched a card I made, so ended up rushing this and not happy with it either. I needed to spend a bit more time on it I think! I love the idea and Lauren's examples are gorgeous. I will definitely make another one!
I will decorate the inside more next time! It was a ridiculously quick make though so if ever you need just a little bit more than a card but with little time it is a great little gift!
Incase anyone wants the measurements Lauren does have a template on her blog but I just used a 8 " x 8" square, I used my Scorpal to create folds at 4" on both sides. Then cut out one small square and the corner off the next one to make this shape. So simple!

No supplies list, think the paper is K and Co. Any other questions just shout! I am running late now so have to dash, hope you have a fabulous sunday!

You did a great job Deb. Sometimes 'less is more' but the pp gives it what it needs. I'm sure you would have liked to have added flowers. Your creations are all spectacular.

Risa said...

Hey Deb,
As far as I am concerned, everyday is a great day for you! I love each and everyone of your creations. Your card is beautiful and I love the clean lines. Great job!!

Jane said... always this is stunning. Even for a "clean and simple" style. How do you manage that??? LOL.

Plus it matches your blog header! What could be better?

I don't think you could ever make a card only fit for the bin sweetie, your cards are always amazing and this one is certainly no different. Thanks for the quick tut too - I much prefer to follow pictures (showing my age here rofl) x
