Less is Best

Less is best is definitely my thought when it comes to making a birthday card for my husband. He is definitely not one for fancy ribbon or any too elaborate, so this simple card is perfect for him. It looked a little too flat to start with so I just stamped a few extra images on separate card, cut then out and popped them on with a few dimensionals to give a bit more depth. The leaves are this week's challenge at Just Add Ink.

Project Recipe
Stamps: French foliage and Curly cute (both retiring)
Card: More mustard, riding hood red and river rock (all retiring)
Ink: more mustard, choc chip and riding hood red

  1. French Foliage not only lends itself to our challenge this week, but as you know Carole, it is also fabulous for a manly birthday card! I know your husband will love it. Thanks for playing at JAI this week.
