Due to LIFE getting in the way, I have not been doing my daily "homework" for the Clean & Simple online Card Classes, running this week and last. However I did have some time today and will try and get caught up, going backwards!
So the topic yesterday was creating your own simple embellishments. Kristina Werner (see her blog HERE) created a simple dimensional flower by punching out six circles from double-sided paper and pinching in the sides, along two edges. When I tried it, my pieces fit together to make a five-petaled, rather than a six-petaled flower, which I preferred.
The front of the card was stamped with "Intrinsic Backgrounds" from Close to My Heart. Kristina's card was stamped with a back-ground stamp on the left side only, and twine was wrapped vertically (I tried to cut and paste her original card for illustration, but wasn't able to). In my version, the stamp lent itself to stamping on the lower half of the card, instead. I outlined the cut-away with running stitch in Lemondrop twine from The Twinery.
Simple yet satisfying. Enjoy your day!
