Hi! Today I am sharing 2 cards with you to see which one you prefer – This or That – Clean and Simple Style.
THIS: Textured Background
THAT: Score Lines
I am finding that I love the Clean and Simple look and finding that it doesn’t have to be boring – you can add interest with the use of a 3D Embossing Folder – such as the Tasteful Textile folder used in THIS – or by just adding some score lines as seen in THAT.
For both cards, I used the Expressions in Ink Specialty Designer Series Paper – my favorite in the Annual Catalog and the Floral Squares dies – such a fun set of dies (they are bundled with the All Squared Away stamp set which makes cute backgrounds for these die cuts as well). I cut each floral frame twice and attached them together to give the image some dimension.
To make a frame for my image, I chose the Stitched with Whimsy dies.
The sentiment is from the Love of Leaves stamp set – I wanted a small font and this was perfect for the Thank You cards I needed to send for the end of September orders I received.
The main colors for the card are:
- Basic White – 4 1/4″ x 11″ – score at 5 1/2″ and fold, mat layer 5 1/8″ x 3 7/8″
- Evening Evergreen – 5 1/4″ x 4″ for the mat
The Floral Squares measure 1 7/8″ x 1 7/8″ when cut, so I cut the Expressions in Ink Designer Series Paper the same size.
So, which look do you like better? THIS or THAT? Leave a comment and let me know!
By the way, I am so close to hitting my $200K career sales milestone! Thank you so much to those who shop with me!

It’s hard to choose between this or that!! I love both of them.
I do like the idea of the Score lines, but I love the “THIS” one so much. There is something about the textured background and then layering the Stitched Die around the Floral Square Die Cutout. This is the card you sent me with my order and I truly LOVE it. I also love how you layered the Floral Die with two layers of it to make it stand out. I love that more than just using dimensional. Very Elegant card. Thank you!
Love This. I love clean simple cards. “this” nailed it
