Hello everyone!! Kymona here with you, and I’m taking over Dana’s blog to share in the fun of Dana’s Got Joy Creations Holiday Series for 2019. Make sure you are following this series for amazing holiday inspiration, giveaways, discount codes, and don’t forget to leave a comment below to qualify all the giveaways. There will also be tutorials and cards shared by Dana as well, and she will have a few surprises to share with you!
Today, I’m sharing a couple clean and simple cards with you using the Wishing You Joy stamp set!
Let’s take a look at my cards:
Clean and simple are my favorite cards to make. I love how they look and turn out. Very elegant yet simple!
Here’s how to create these cards:
Cut the cardstock to 4.25 by 11. Score at 5.5. You will have two cards.
For the first card, stamp the sentiment in the center using black ink.
Then draw a line a half an inch from the top and bottom of the stamped sentiment using a pencil.
Using red and green ink, stamp the dotted line going across the front.
Erase the line when the ink dries.
Round all four corners with a corner punch.
For the second card, stamp the sentiment in the upper right-hand corner using black ink.
Score a line a half an inch to the left of the sentiment and a half an inch from the top of the sentiment.
With the same red and green ink, stamp the leaves under the sentiment.
See, beautiful and simple, yet elegant.
Let’s take another look:
So what do you think? Will you try and create clean and simple cards this holiday season? I would love to hear from you! You can find me on my blog and on my Instagram.
