clean & simple sunday no. 90 – season’s greetings

I’m prepping for a couple of holiday craft fairs and working hard to build up a little Christmas card inventory so despite my Holiday Card Series wrap-up, Christmas cards are still very much at the forefront of my mind these days. Today I chose to share a card I made using Sweet Wishes, a brand new stamp set from this year’s A Muse Studio holiday catalog…


A very clean and simple design with lots of literal “white space”, this card is not only cute to look at but was really fun to make. I started by stamping the little string of lights image onto sugar card stock in Memento tuxedo black ink and proceeded to color in the little light bulbs with my Copic markers. I then went over them with my Quickie glue pen and dusted them with superfine glitter.


The little sparkle the glitter creates along with the adorable cherry & white baker’s twine is just the right amount of embellishment to balance out this card design.  I also used sage card stock to mat the image panel, leaving a slightly larger border at the base of the mat to bottom-weight the image panel and provide a little extra “base” for the baker’s twine to rest. Sweet, simple and a little whimsical, too. Happy {clean & simple} Sunday!
