Today's Lesson From The Craft Room: Scale BackWow - talk about a lesson I need to keep relearning! It can be so easy to add to the piles of stuff - craft stuff, house stuff, pet stuff. The same can be true with cards. I can get into a space where I feel like I need to keep adding and adding and adding - layers, embellishments, interest, bling...the list is endless. So sometimes it is great to just scale back - in life and in your art. To look at what you can do more simply. This card is a result of that thought (although you might notice a few rhinestones and a bit of dazzling diamonds...I couldn't help myself!).
I stamped the Vintage Vogue floral line stamp in Chocolate Chip ink onto Naturals Ivory card stock using the stamp-a-ma-jig. I then used the stamp-a-ma-jig again to center the greeting from Curly Cute over the floral line image. The single flower came next. I then added just a touch of sparkle with a few rhinestones and a dash of dazzling diamonds. I know I will continue on my quest to scale back...hopefully this card gets me one step closer!
