Keep it simple

A Simple card idea. I have shared many cards with you, some over the top and some super simple. Of course there are many beginning stampers just starting out with a few supplies. However, even the Advanced stamper Love the Simple. So, lets begin with a super simple card, a one layer card idea and then a stepped up version.

Idea #1. Simple card idea using one sheet of card stock:

Thank You For Caring Card

Idea #2.  A one layer card-adding the Coastal Cabana Card Stock:

One-LayerIt was in a clear envelope so please excuse the glare.

Idea #3. A Stepped up version:

Stepped-upI added the Butterfly Punch and a fantastic product that I sometimes use as adhesive-Crystal Effects.

Supplies I used:

The dimension for all the cards is 5 1/2" X 4 1/4 ". The layered piece of white on cards 2 and 3 is 5 1/4" X 4" -(Generally all my layered cards on my posts are done this way unless otherwise stated. Keeping it simple since I was never very good in math! Hah.)
