Today I am sharing a very clean and simple card – some days we just need that kind of thinking – or more likely for me, all that I am capable of at the moment. Lol!
Recently Els did a Friday tutorial (Sparkling Zen cards)on using the glitter on the bamboo dies. It inspired me to go through my set of stamps to see what saying would go with it. Normally, I find the stamp first and then choose the embellishments. I found this lovely sentiment from A Bit of Fragrance Collection by Suzanne Cannon. I think it is just a wonderful reminder during these crazy times.
After creating my glittered bamboo, I set them aside to do the background. I chose a stitched edge rectangle and sponged the edges a soft blue and green as pictures. After arranging (but not adhering the bamboo) to the card, I carefully stamped the sentiment in the open space. I then glued the bamboo stalks on and the entire thing to a white card base. Very easy but the glitter makes it a fancy card to me.
Thank you so much for looking!
