Clean & Simple Holidays...


To view an image up-close, please click on the photo.

Today is World Card Making Day (I didn't know we had our OWN day!) and I took it as an opportunity to give Nichole Heady's Guest Star Stamper Challenge in the Clean and Simple Holiday Card category a try. For this card, I made use of my Nestabilities and a simple snowflake image. I wanted a more modern look, and so paired some Baja Breeze with Riding Hood Red. I admire cards with lots of white space (though I don't often make them myself!) and here I created a cut-out frame nestled within a succession of embossed squares with a tiny red bow to suggest a gift box. A little glitter pen later, my finished card.

Now on with the tour! Visit Lori's blog to continue the festivities...

Love this card, Regina. The simplicity, colors, and white space work so well! I love the bow to indicate a gift box, too! Great job!

I'm absolutely nuts about the use of white space, crisp dry embossed lines and a glorious cut-out present. Perfection. Hugs, M
