Clean & Simple, continued...

Here is another card, inspired by the Clean and Simple Card Classes (see link listed in my last posting). A sketch was provided, but the fun part was using the "negative," left-over paper from die-cutting letters, as the card focal.

Editing this post to include in Suzanne Dahlberg's April 1st, 2013, April Fool's Day blog challenge: 
re-posting your ugliest card ever...
This one was well-intentioned (aren't they always?), following the prompt from last year's Online Card Classes' Clean & Simple. Just too much going on! And that fuzzy fibre looks like a bunch or caterpillars crawling all over the card... Needless to say, it was never sent! TTFN!


Here I used prints4animals from The Stamps of Life, as well as boxes4abc for the word YOU. The dies are the old, original Funky Serif letters from SIZZIX. I inked the edges of the letters to make sure they showed up against the plain card background. I wrapped the stamped piece in some furry yarn and added a twine-threaded button. Simple but wild!


  1. The leopard print is cool and I like the furry yarn!

  2. OH MY...those DO look like caterpillars!! Or silkworms hanging from silk LOL! I actually like the punny sentiment with the "wild" cut out of the leopard print!

  3. Oh, too funny! Can you pop the caterpillars off?! It's quite cute otherwise! This has been such a fun hop and a great way to meet new crafters!!

  4. It does look pretty cool. Maybe no caterpillars would help?

  5. Hi Caroline! This is not that bad at all, though I agree with you on those fuzzy things looking like caterpillars! I think the animal print paper is cute too. Thanks for linking up in the hop! :)


Thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts!
