Circle Circus Just for You


Ever have trouble sticking to just simple cards? Shelli Gardner, CEO of Stampin' Up!, has given us a new creative challenge for August: stick to "stamps-paper-ink" (and that's it!). For as simple as it sounds, it's really tricky trying to keep myself from adding "just one more thing..." ~smile~

Today's card keeps it simple and certainly can be whipped together in a quick couple of minutes. That means it qualifies for Sanity Saver!

  • Like the cute frames for the greeting? Just use the Word Window, Modern Label, and Large Oval Punches for a fantastic frame that makes greetings "pop"!
  • The Circle Circus stamp set is funky and modern, and I combined the images with a funky color combo too: Crushed Curry, Basic Gray, and Whisper White.
  • Using the corner rounder punch on the edges also adds a little funk-appeal to make this card truly "funk-i-licious!"

Love this card! Your very talented because I can never pull off a card with out patterned paper, ribbon, and other accessories. I love the colors and how you used the stamps to make your own "patterned paper". Very nice!
