Clean and Simple Card Making Inspired Card Set...

I was lucky enough to take the Clean & Simple Card Making Online Workshop taught by Jennifer
and Kristina and I was SO inspired. I have a difficult time creating simple cards and this class helped me not overdesign my projects.

I decided to create a card set that was full of fun and color but still simple. Here it is..


A closer look...
I used THIS sentiment set from Paper Smooches. I am in love with their playful fonts and various greetings..
If you want to recreate this look, here are the supplies you will need:
Directions:
I heat embossed THIS background image from Hero Arts (my new favorite background stamp) with white embossing powder onto white watercolor paper. Then I used my distress stains (love them!) and swiped it horizontally across the image to create a rainbow look. I matted the image in black cardstock and adhered it to a 4 1/2 x 4 1/2 inch card. Then I stamped various greetings in black ink on white stips and adhered with foam dots. Super fast and easy.

Thanks for stopping by! :)
