Simple Design

Happy Sunday everyone! It's finally a nice day! I'm just sitting in the backyard by the pool composing this post…… Sunday bliss! So I have another card to show you. I tried to keep this one simple. By simple I mean basic shapes, one pattern of paper and not a lot of embellishments. I love the "girlfriends" series of stamps from Art Impressions! I got mine at The Paper Trail, they are so cute and funny.


  • To start I made a card base from a 12 x 12" piece of card stock at 6 3/4" x 4 3/4"
  • I cut my base coloured layer at 6 5/8' x 4 5/8'. 
  • The patterned paper I used is from AC Dear Lizzy Neapolitan Collection. It's called Simple Romance and I cut that at 6 1/2" x 4 1/2". 
  • I used 2 shades of pink card stock at 5 3/4"x 3 7/8" and 5 5/8" x 3 3/4"to layer behind my stamped image. 
  • Using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink, I stamped my image on Copic paper and coloured it in with my Copic sketch markers. 
  • I stamped the sentiment for the outside of the card onto a piece of white card stock and then using the Fishtail Flags Layer Stax from MFT, I made a small banner.
  •  Taking Distress Ink in Vintage Photo I inked all the edges of my papers with the applicator tool. 
  • Glue all the pieces together and attach to the card, popping up the sentiment with pop dots. 
  • I used my black sakura gel pen to colour in the sunglasses.
  • Using gold and star dust Stickles I added glitter to each of the ladies. 
  • For the inside of my card I used some of the leftover papers, Spellbinder Labels 18 dies and stamped a sentiment.
