Here’s a “Simple Saturday” simply sweet card (now say that three times fast…) to let a special someone know they’re in your thoughts.

This one’s both a Clean and Simple (CAS) and a Quick & Easy!

Layering goes a long way in this card design and the beautiful Basic Gray is, to me, a refreshing and vibrant neutral. I love the depth of color (saturation) in “Basic Gray”, and it works beautifully with almost any accent color. For this card, I chose Summer Starfruit.

The butterfly sampler stamped image is from the Kindness Matters stamp set which will retire on June 3rd. This is another stamp set that I’ll be sad to see go, but Stampin’ Up! has come up with some wonderful trendy new surprises in the new catalog due to launch in one week.

I chose a very contemporary framelit from the Apothecary Arts Framelits to crop a frame for the stamped image and added two Neutrals Brads for a little anchoring and embellishment.

The “Thinking of You” sentiment, stamped in Whisper White Craft Ink, is from the Embellished Events stamp set, which was also featured on yesterday’s post. This set is, by far, a must have for your collection. As I mentioned yesterday, you’ll use it over and over again.

As always, thanks for stopping by, and be sure to give this design a try…it’s easy and fun! Here are the dimensions:

  • This is a standard 4 1/4″ X 5 1/2″ card base in Basic Gray;
  • The first Whisper White layer is 4″ X 5 1/4″;
  • The second Basic Gray layer is 3 3/4″ X 5″.

Here’s a Quick Tip: I used my paper piercing tool and mat to pierce my holes for the brads. It’s much easier to get the brad exactly where you want it.
