Clean and Simple Cards

Hi!  Today I wanted to share three super easy Clean and Simple cards I created with Sweet Shop Stamps and May Arts Ribbon!


To create these three cards I used the same basic design so I could do all three at the same time and have them done fairly quickly.  I began by creating the cards from cardstock.  I then trimmed patterned paper panels and rounded the bottom corners of those panels and the cards.
Next, I trimmed the white cardstock panels, rounded the corners and stamped the images and sentiments on each one.  I didn’t have a sentiment stamp to go with the gumball machine, so I added a quick sticker sentiment to that card, instead.  I colored the images with colored pencils and blended them to get the look I wanted.
Finally, I added the ribbon and bow to each card and adhered the panel  to finish them off!  Nice and easy and now I have three fun cards ready to go out to friends!

Have a great day!  Thanks for visiting!

    CAS cards are my favorites.  That owl is calling my name, wanting to live at my house….  The beautiful ribbons really put these cards on the "aren't they glamorous?" level.  Nice work!

    The striped orange ribbon you used on the candy machine card looks great. The background paper goes with it so well. Nice job.

    The Furry Friends Forever card is really cute. The ribbon really stands out because the color is different from the image.
