Clean + Simple Card: Ringed with Nature
Today I'm sharing another card idea, this time a very clean and simple version of a card I created on Friday when I shared a product showcase on the Ringed with Nature bundle and the wonderful way it coordinates with the 12x12 Rings of Love designer series paper, which is a free item from Sale-a-Bration! You can catch that video HERE.
To see the video where I share how I put together the card for TODAY, please visit HERE.
The card I created today had several pieces including some die cut pieces, but the overall design is pretty clean and simple. I used a strip of Poppy Parade that I embossed with the 3D Timber embossing folder, to create an anchor panel for my focal image. I stamped and die cut the ringed stump, stamped and fussy cut the mushrooms and I die cut a couple of tree sprigs, one in crumb cake and one in garden green and layered them together to create a two-tone die cut to add another little design detail to this card.
Linen thread is always a great choice of embellishment whenever you're creating cards with outdoorsy elements. It has a wonderful, natural texture that adds another interesting detail.
In addition to the clean and simple version, I brought in the bumped up version to show as a comparison---which to you like better?! I'd love to know... I always lean toward the clean and simple version of cards, but that beautiful DSP is so eye-catching, that more bumped up version is really pretty too, and those mushrooms are just adorable. I'm hoping this cute, whimsical woodland greetings will bring a little sunshine to a couple of friends who are recovering from some health issues.
