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!
