Keeping things simple…….


Today I thought I would post a very CAS card, focusing on a lovely…..and quite large Poinsettia stamp from Stamp Addicts.

This is a 6 x 6 card so you can see that the stamp is more than 3 inches wide - a focal point indeed.

So for this card I kept to the traditional flower colours and coloured this in using my promarkfers before layering the flower so that it stood a little proud.

The matting and layering couldn't be simpler really. I created the dotty background using one of my embossing folders and matted on to bright red card before adding a scrap of ribbon as a balancing accent.

So in summary - very clean and VERY simple!

Before I go, I would just like to enter a few challenges, and here they are:
