Happy Tuesday!

I spent time in my craft room over the weekend doing a little purging and organizing.  I’ve used much of the True Love Designer Series Paper, but haven’t really done much with this polka dot pattern.  Without a doubt it is “clean and simple” pretty and makes a great card layer. The trio of colored cardstock strips add some color to the black and white.  They also anchor the sentiment circle focal point.

Stampin’ Up’s Vellum cardstock is a quality weight and cuts beautifully, as well.  No creasing at the ends or ragged edges and it’s very smooth.

I randomly colored a butterfly from Butterfly Brilliance with Blends and attached it to the circle.  I colored three little pearls with my Blends for a bit more color.  The sentiment stamp from the Garden Wishes stamp set.  works well with the clean and simple card design.  I like the informality of the mixed font in the sentiment.

This project is quick and easy.  The card design will work well paired with a favorite stamp set and patterned paper.  I chose a circle for my focal point because it created a pattern repeat with the polka dot patterned paper.  Any shape would work depending on the patterned paper you choose.

So, (I know you know what I’m going to say) … grab your favorite patterned paper, add a focal point with a great image and stamped sentiment and create something clean and simple with a pop of color.

…the only limitation is your imagination!
