Festive Flowers

Isn't this a beautifully simple card?

This was Natalie's contribution to a Shoebox Swap we did at my monthly Team Meeting in June.

She used the Flower Fest set (122278-wood $27.95 or 122280-clear $19.95) which was introduced to us via the Summer mini-catalog.

But the good news is - it's in the NEW Idea Book & Catalog, too!

Most of the flowers in the set can be punched out with punches we currently carry.

If you have those punches, that makes this a REALLY QUICK CARD! Gotta love those, for those last minute card needs. And if you don't have the punches, why not? They're great staple tools to keep in your repertoire.

Natalie used Real Red and Tangerine Tango CS, with Whisper White on the inside of the card.

The only ink used on this card is Real Red.

She also used the Fancy Flower Extra Large and the 5-Petal Flower Extra Large punch. And of course, the large Oval Punch.

I love simple cards!

I sometimes get caught up in the race to make a busier and busier card, and then I see something like this one and realize it doesn't have to be that way...

Simple is good!

I'll show you some of the other cards we made at our Shoebox Swap in the coming days.

In the meantime, thanks for stopping by - come back soon!
