Today’s topic in the Clean and Simple Card Class is about flat cards. One-layer, perfectly flat cards.
I’m not very good at this kind of card. Yet. I have high hopes of getting it all figured out one of these days! And then being able to create fabulous cards. For now, I’m in practice mode. 😉
I used the ColourQ #119 challenge colors to create this card:
This card is purely for the learning experience, so I hope you’ll tell me what you think about it.
I think the black flower centers and such might be a little too much. I used it to tie in with the black text, and I was thinking it wouldn’t be too weird, next to the grey leaves. I hope it’s not too weird. Honestly, it’s a little weird to me, too much black. Or all the colors don’t blend or balance quite right. Or something. I don’t know. But I didn’t want to re-stamp the whole thing tonight just to use another color, because I’m really tired.

Anyway. I made a purchase from My Favorite Things Stamps a week or so ago, for a bunch of dies, and I guess the purchase qualified for a free stamp set, because I was pleasantly surprised to find it when I opened the package. I thought something was wrong, so I emailed them, but they said it’s a free set for qualifying purchases. So, YAY! I had to break it open and try one.
Thanks for stopping by today. 😉
