Clean and Simple: Sweet Hello
I came across this challenge over at Splitcoast Stampers, and I just loved the concept. Stripes and polka-dots are my favorite patterns ever, and highlighting them on a clean and simple card? Absolutely!
But... I saw the thread quite a bit after it was posted and was a little bummed out - until I read that there's no deadline. Wohoo! Sign me up!
I cut a stitched rectangle out of white cardstock that was just slightly smaller than a top-folding A2 card-base (4¼x5½"). This is going to be my front panel.
I used a super cute stamp set from Your Next Stamp called Woodland Cuties. I grabbed the sentiment and the cute racoon from that set and paired them with two stencils from Simon Says Stamp (Medium Dots and Peppermint Stripe). I used Cracked Pistachio and Pumice Stone distress inks to add a subtle pattern. I layered the sentiment and the racoon, then added a few enamel dots.
I adhered the front panel to the card base with some foam tape, and voila! Finished card.
Thanks for reading!
