Keeping it Clean & Simple

The Simon Says Stamp challenge this week is to keep it Clean and Simple. I found a card similar to this on Pinterest, and had to make one of my own. I used the SU! mini punches to punch glittered cardstock and added them to the embossed banners. I added a flat bow done with cherry cobbler seam binding. I liked this look so much, I made another one...


I changed this one up by making the banners all the same size, and adding ribbon all the way around the card with a different sentiment. And did I stop there? Nope! I made yet another one :)

This one has no embossing, and a different sentiment & ribbon. I may make several more of these before I'm done, as I just adore those tiny punches!

With all the tiny scraps I've used, I just have to share these over at the Snippets Playground #98 !

Thanks for stopping by today, and have yourself a wonderful Tuesday!

Oh, these are great cards. Love that idea of punching the small designs and placing on the banners. Very pretty cards, fun and easy.

Oh these are all so fun, Carol! The embossed banners are really sweet with their little accents, and I like how each card is just a little bit different.

Wow, I'm impressed with THREE cards! Each one is just so pretty, and you get my vote for such industriousness & creativity. Love each one of these pretty cards, & gotta check to see if I have those tiny punches. (another to-do: get my SU sets into a spreadsheet so I know what I have!). TFS & hugs. Getting cold this evening, down in low 20's predicted.

I cannot believe that I don't own those little punches - you have created such charming cards! These are so clean and so festive - and the card you did on your next post with the dangling ornaments is equally cute!

I love these CAS design cards that also manage to look nicely festive.
