clean and simple sunday no. 72

The clean and simple card for today brings together a couple of strips of paper from my scrap bin, a row of tiny pearl stickers, a ribbon and a cute saying from one of the brand new stamp sets in the 2013 A|S catalog/idea book…Southern Sass

I chose a sugar polka dot organdy ribbon, but a black, satin ribbon would have definitely given this card design more impact. I like the subtle texture that the organdy ribbon gives to the design so I went with it, but it always surprises me how a simple detail can change the whole look!  Even the rounded corner of the card base at the top makes the card look more interesting than if I’d just left it a point.

I challenge you to pull out a few strips of card stock from your scrap bin and a favorite sentiment stamp and have a little fun with this design!


  1. It may be simple….but it is very elegant too!! Love it!!

    I love designs with black in them, but ususally reserve them for men’s cards, forgetting what a “wow” factor they create. Love this card, it’s colors and design, and will be copying it for up-coming b-days and holidays!
