This is one of the cards that I designed for my Stamp-a-Stack that happened last weekend (and for the "Holiday Stamp-a-Stack by Mail").
I had 4 designs and everyone did 5 each of those designs. The other 3 designs were done with colored cardstock as the base. I wanted to do one design that used vanilla cardstock as the base, as I find it really personifies simplicity and elegance.
I wanted to create a design that didn't take away from the simplicity and still retained a classic elegance. This is what I came up with.
Very simple, but very elegant.
It's truly simplicity personified. But it's also elegance personified.
A little bit of patterned paper can go a long way......just a quick strip across the center of the card adds a little bit of contrast and color. Again....very simple, but striking.
It's hard to tell from the photo but the snowflake shines and sparkles with, yup, you guessed it....Dazzling Diamonds Glitter. That glitter works on so many levels. It can be used to make a bright balloon on a child's card come to life....but it can also turn a simple snowflake into a sparkling wonder.
Speaking of sparkling wonders.....I recently updated my son's blog with a post and pictures from the trip we took last month to Florida. I keep meaning to share it with all of you and I keep forgetting. If you'd like to check it out, you can click here: Zach's World That little boy of mine (though he's getting to be not-so-little these days.....hard to believe he's almost 9 years old soon!) always keeps us guessing, but he's always full of sparkle and wonder.
Have a lovely evening.....and make sure to check back tomorrow for my 400th post give-away! :)
