Well, I hope you were able to enjoy the first day of our blog hop. Did you come here from Melissa Stout’s blog? Isn’t her project great! It has been so fun to see all of the talent in this group!
My post today includes my simplest card. In fact, it is so simple that I debated until the day I had to ship everything off in order to meet the deadline, about whether to include it or swap it out for something else. I was worried it was too simple. But since I didn’t really have anything else I liked better, and I truly love this card, I decided to send it in. This card is so me! I am drawn to florals and clean and simple lines.
The hardest part about this card was lining up the polka dots border stamp to make it look like all of those polka dots were from one stamped image. I used the Stamp-a-ma-jig and stamped them in Versamark and then embossed them with clear embossing powder. It doesn’t matter how often I use heat embossing — I still think it is magic! I love watching the powder melt, and you are left with such a professional look.
Thanks for stopping by today!

Love both of your cards so far, and for today’s card, I am finding out that sometimes, simpler is better! Great job.
Amy, I absolutely love this card. Your color choices were right on the money! Sometimes I think it takes more talent to create a CAS card than one with many layers. This card is perfect!
I LOVE it! The colors are so striking! Perfectly done! TFS!
Simple and lovely! Sometimes less is more in my opinion. Great color combination. Well done.
Simply beautiful! Really less is more.
