CSS Alumni Blog Hop: Clean and Simple Challenge

Hello my friends and welcome to another CSS Alumni Blog Hop. If you have hopped from Deb's blog you are in the right place.
This time we were challenged to create a "Clean & Simple" card/project. I love layers and layers so this is a big challenge for me.

Here are the details about this challenge:
  • Clean And Simple design: lots of white or open space with one main focal point.
  • One image.
  • One sentiment.
  • One layer card - your card base plus only one more layer.
  • Embellishments - you can use any number of embellishments you want, but they all must be the same color.
So this is what I have created:
"Spirit of Christmas"

Directions:
  • Make card from Kraft Cardstock.
  • Cut a piece of Innocent Pink cardstock: 4 3/4" x 3.5"
  • Stamp image on Innocent Pink cardstock in White Craft Ink. Add White Embossing powder and heat emboss.
  • Stamp sentiment in Worn Lipstick Distress Ink.
  • Using a ruler and a Uni-ball White Pen, create a frame.
  • Sponge the image with Pink Ink. Add 3 Pink Rhinestones. Finally add ruffle ribbon.

Card recipe:
  • Cardstock: Kraft, Innocent Pink (Gina K. Designs) 
  • Stamps: Poinsettia image from "A year of flowers", snetiment from "A Very Merry Christmas" (Gina K. Designs)
  • Ink: White Craft (JoAnn's), Worn Lipstick Distress (Ranger).
  • Embellishments: Pink Rhinestones (Kaisercraft), Light Pink Satin Ribbon (Offray).
  • Accessories: White Uni-ball Signo Pen (Mitsubishi Pencil), White Embossing powder, Embossing heat gun (Marvi Uchida), Sponges, Adhesives.

Now, it is your turn to head over to Janice's blog, I am pretty sure you will be impress with her creations.

Hope you like mine!
Have a great day!!
