Easy Embrace Life Card


Brenda,


I love the simple card you did, but you gave me a big challenge....

how.....by needing a simple card....I had not done this in ages so....

just for the fun of it..... I challenged my self to use mostly white card stock with one other color. I only used markers. The flower is colored with Apricot Appeal then I used close to cocoa for the stem. I did cheat a bit and used my aqua painter to dab Groovy guava ink from the pad onto the flower. I scored the bottom of the card three times at 1/2" intervals then added flower brads. You could add ribbon instead, they were already out so I used them.
Now......here is my challenge to everyone else. Make a card with a white background and one color card stock. Only use one embellishment and markers to color your images. Use the stamp set Embrace Life. Lets give Brenda lots of ideas to send off to her cousin. Thanks for playing along. Paula

Hi Paula, I saw your card just after I left a suggestion to Brenda about using 3 small brads - something I always like as an alternative to ribbon (cheaper too)

I like the effect created by the scoring - gives an elegance to the card. Very well done.

This is very nice. A card doesn't have to have a ton of embellishments in order to have that "WOW" factor. Great job!

I love this card. I never thought about using scoring. So simple yet so elegant!
