Simple design–easy to repeat

Hi – Today’s card is one I’ve made before.  I don’t often repeat a card layout but I really like the way this one can be simplified or jazzed up – and it works in so many colors!  I used a Very Vanilla base with Basic Black mats and the Newsprint DSP.  With those as the starting point, you can really add any 3rd color to the mix and it will look great!

For this card, I used Pear Pizzazz.  The “Happy Birthday” comes from the Occasions Mini, stamped in black and then heat embossed in black for a shiny look.  The flower on the metal edge tag is from the Friends Never Fade stamp set – stamped first in Pear Pizzazz and then the center is stamped in black and heat embossed in black as well.  I popped it up on dimensionals to give it some height.  The other floral stamp from the set is stamped in VersaMark in the background.  I already have the papers cut to try this in Poppy Parade, So Saffron, Baja Breeze and a few others. :0)  Maybe I’ll try changing the stamp set too.  Hope you like it!

Thanks for stopping by -
