See - I CAN Do Simple!

Hi Folks!

Hope you're all having a great weekend?  We're having another lovely day here so enjoyed a good walk in the park with Jamie and the pooch this morning, then had a bimble into town to pick up some more ribbon from our little crafty shop. 

Yesterday, I received the new My Craft Studio Teddy Pals and in the Garden cd, and it's lovely so I couldn't wait to use it.  I saw these elements and knew exactly what I was going to do...clean and simple.

This is an A6 scalloped card base and it's unusual for me to go for this sort of shape as I like my square or shaped cards, but I really want to create a range in this size and shape so here's the first of them. 

I've not adjusted anything here.  It's as it came straight from the cd.  I took the elements into my Silhouette software, traced around the edges of the sentiment and topper, created a matting layer and then cut them out with my Cameo.  I've used foam pads for more depth between the layers (a change for me as I usually raise the whole thing), added a bit of ribbon, a double bow and some faux pearls and we have a nice little card which is quick and simple to make, which will keep the price down, and that can't be bad.

Enjoy the rest of your day!
