Fall Inspired Clean and Simple Card

I love how easy peasy it can be to create cards. I always need a thank you card to share with my Close To My Heart customers and friends.

Here is a simple card (three versions) created using painters tape, sponge, inks, and two stamp sets - National Stamping Month stamp set  From the Heart (CC1228) and the Stamp of the Month, Feel So Blessed (S1709).

Check out the video below to see how I made this card and the other three versions shared below.

In this version, I used Espresso, one of the nex basic colors for the flowers and sentiment.

To add a little texture, I dry embossed two lines above and below the stamped sentiment.

In this final version, I used Nutmeg, another of our new Basic palette colors, for the sentiment.


  1. Shirley great technique and beautiful CASE cards!! I am going to do one of these for my workshop this Saturday to sell the From the Heart stamp set. I'm very inspired and delighted!!

There are FOUR great Stamps of the Month and we start with Sweet Treats. A great stamp for Halloween, Christmas, winter, and friendship.

Here are to cards I created using Sweet Treats!

I created a Halloween shaker card using our new Shaker thin cuts and Shaker Window Foam & Acetate (Z4310). I used one of the circle thin cuts to cut a small circle in the card base and used the larger circle and frame to create a see through shaker. I cut little bats on the Cricut and added the Shaker Sequins.
And don't forget to do the inside and envelope
Next I cut a large circle with the Shaker Thin Cut and added a Cricut cut leaf frame. The Warm Winter Wishes image was stamped on the inside and a piece of Ruby polka dot ribbon from my stash was added to the front.
