Clean and Simple

Sandy, here with you today.  Sometimes it is nice to make a clean and simple card without all the fancy embellishments. That is what I have created today.  I love long/tall cards.  This one is 4 x 9.25 inches and fits in a business envelope.  Using just the center drop out from my Mexican Tile Pattern die, I die cut three white squares which I mounted onto pink, then black card stock.  This is what the complete die looks like.....

The outer blue frame cuts as one piece and the inner white square is another.  I simply cut my card stock 2.75 inches square, centered it on the die and cut it out.  For the center flower, I used my Stacker Flower 4, cutting it three times and then gluing them together so the petals are staggered.  I added a bit of curl to the ends of the petals for some dimension.

  3. Sandy I really like that you have used the center of this die and that you turned and popped up the middle one with the flower. I really like that about several of the cheery lynn dies. I say they are 2 for 1's as you get two dies in one die. Like the shape of this one two. Beautiful card
