Thanks So Much- Clean and Simple :-)

Hi Stampers!!

I had a great weekend crafting away and hope to share the cards with you during the next few days :-)  

This quick Clean and Simple (CAS) card was created using the FMS147 Sketch at Freshly Made Sketches along with the CCMC314Create with Connie and Mary Challenge. 

If you have not visited either site yet- I hope you will do so!  Great inspiration from all!

 To create this card:

Ink the stem image from Summer Silhouettes using Basic Gray Classic Ink and stamp three times onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock.

Ink the floral portion of the stamp set using Tangelo Twist Classic Ink and stamp above the stems.   Trim the panel and mount onto a piece of Basic Gray cardstock, trim again and onto a piece of Bermuda Bay cardstock, trim again and mount onto a piece of Tangelo Twist cardstock.

Using Bermuda Bay Classic Ink, stamp the decorative strip from the same set onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock.  Trim and mount onto a piece of Basic Gray cardstock and add to the card front.

Stamp the sentiment onto Whisper White cardstock using Basic Gray Classic Ink, trim and add the banner points using the Hexagon Punch.  Mount onto a piece of Basic Gray cardstock (creating the banner with the Hexagon Punch as well).  Add the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals®.

Create the paper bow using the Large Oval Punch (punch out two from Tangelo Twist cardstock, curve to create the bow loops using the Bone Folder, adhere in the center to a scrap strip of Tangelo Twist cardstock, add the tails from scrap pieces of Tangelo Twist cardstock using the Hexagon Punch to create the points and add the retired Everyday Enchantment brad to the center to finish off the bow).

Add the bow to the card front and mount the entire panel onto the Whisper White card base to finish off the card.

Stamp Sets: Summer Silhouettes, Kind and Caring Thoughts (retired Hostess Set)

Ink: Basic Gray, Bermuda Bay, Tangelo Twist

Paper: Whisper White, Basic Gray, Bermuda Bay, Tangelo Twist

Accessories: Punches- Large Oval, Hexagon, retired Everyday Enchantment brad

Thanks again for stopping by- hope you have a fabulous Monday and stop back again soon- God Bless!

Very pretty accessorized bow and I really like the way you stamped the sentiment and placed it at an angle on your card. So glad you played Create with Connie & Mary this week!
