Happy Sunday everyone and welcome to the Paper Players challenge (14)! Did you see our entries last week? Lots of talent out there in blogland and we received over 100 entries! That's wonderful--thank you so much. This week the lovely and talented Jaydee asked us to create a clean and simple card--my favorite!
I didn't expect to make a Christmas card in September (!) but after all the Halloween cards I've been making, I thought it was time for a change.
My colors are inspired by the Elegant Soiree designer paper: Soft Suede, Baja Breeze and Very Vanilla. The Soft Suede base was run through my Big Shot with the Elegant Lines embossing folder--the perfect compliment to the designer paper. I stamped the ornament from Contempo Christmas first in Versamark and Soft Suede ink, stamped onto Very Vanilla and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. After punching it out with the coordinating Oranament punch (love it!), I added some of the new adhesive Basic Pearls and popped it up on a piece of Baja Breeze. A little strip of DSP, some 1/4" Very Vanilla grosgrain ribbon, the sentiment from Contempo Christmas and my clean and simple card is finished!
Head on over to the Paper Players and check out the design team's inspiration. We would love to see your take on clean and simple!
