Clean and Simple Embossed Cards
Cut 'n' Boss Design Team: Suzanna Lee Cycle 10
We love a good clean, and elegant card! And today, we don't get one, we get two gorgeous and simple card ideas by Suzanna Lee!
See them below!
Hi there! Suzanna here again to share some more cards with you! I used the same embossing folders that I used last week for this weeks' cards. I figured, why mess around with a good thing! I am not a mixed media gal so for me, clean and simple is the way to go.
Both cards are created using embossed white cardstock as my canvas. That canvas is backed with a hint of patterned paper and then it was time to get down to business and decorate.
This card is truly clean and simple. Just a key die cut which came from the Craftwell/Teresa Collins "Memory" pocket collection, a ribbon and a stamped sentiment. It really doesn't take much to please the eye. Or the recipient!
There is a tad more to this card in that there is fussy cutting involved. I fussy the flowers from Simple Stories' "I AM..." collection and layered them on my embossed background.
I actually ran both sandwich's through the Cut'NBoss at the same time. Your platform is big enough to accommodate both embossing folders without any snags!
Thanks for stopping in today!
