I love the idea of clean & simple cards. Whenever I'm looking at Pinterest or Blog Hops that showcase cards...apart from the obviously beautiful & ornate cards that I longed to make, I seem to be drawn to the clean & simple cards more & more...cards that have a big sentiment as the focus point & showcased in a big way with a few perfect items around them. I made this card casing one I had pinned from Split Coast Stampers with that clean simple idea in mind. Of course, it wasn't as simple as I thought because I didn't have the same small sentiment they had, nor the measurements of those three strips of embossed paper. Believe it or not I had to fuss with those embossed panels quite a while but somehow I managed to piece it together and just went with a larger sentiment. The snowflake embossing folder is by Darice, the white die cut is from Spellbinder's Medallion Two. The sentiment is a just a portion of a stamp from Hero Arts #CL1722. I added some pearls from my stash & called it finished!! Thanks for stopping by to take a look!
