Another Clean and Simple Quick Card for Beginners and Workshops

Lovely as a tree… what a classic and timeless stamp set!  You’ve probably seen so many cards made with this stamp set that you cannot even begin to count them!  This card was designed for my University of North Florida beginners class, but it’s always a sure hit and WOW! in a workshop setting too!

unf_and_seniors_samples 011Check out the tiny scallops surrounding the tree/focal point of this card!  Aren’t they cool?  No punching either!  The tree was stamped onto the new Occasions Mini Catalog "Hugs” Love Notes!  At 2 1/4” x 4” the scallop edge ‘hugs’ are a perfect add-on for cards!  Cutting the Old Olive background just a 1/4” larger, and using my corner rounder (punch) added a special element to this clean and simple, quick and easy card, don’t you think?
