Really Clean and Simple
The challenge this week at Phindy's Place Challenge Blog is to make a CLEAN AND SIMPLE card. We want you to make a card with lots of white space and minimal embellishments.
You would think that making this kind of card would be easy with not much thinking required but I actually found it harder to make and I really found it hard to photograph all that white. I leaned it against a piece of black fleece so the edges would show and now it looks like a single sheet and not a card but trust me it is a 5" x 5" card.
One good thing about this kind of card is that it doesn't cost much to make and won't require any extra postage when I go to mail it. The image and sentiment are printed right on the card base so the only added layers are the die cut frame and the bursts, if that is what they are called (they don't look like flowers to me) with buttons.
You don't have to use a Phindy image on your clean and simple card but if you do, follow the instructions on the sidebar to enter it twice for double the chances to win the lovely prizes that Phindy offers. One random winner will receive a $5 gift certificate to her store and the Design Team will select one card as Card of the Week. That creator will also receive a $5 gift certificate and will be in the running for a monthly Guest Designer spot.
