Sweet Stamps Challenge 36 - Clean and Simple

Today our challenge at Sweet Stamps blog is to make a Clean and Simple Card.  Anyone can enter, but if you use a Sweet Stamps rubber stamp you get two entries into the challenge for a chance to win a $20 shopping spree.



I think one way to make a spectacular clean and simple card is to use an amazing cutting and embossing folder like this one called Romantic.  The card stock is a fabulous shimmery wavy patterned paper, very elegant.  I added red card stock behind the cut outs.  Then I stamped Sweet Stamps Simple Poinsettia with Archival Black ink.  A little bit of color with my Copics, a red gem and I was done.  Finished size is 4.25 x 5.5 inches. 

Be sure to visit Sweet Stamps blog and see what the rest of the team has created for you.   And please join in on the fun!
