Eek! This week had gone by faster than I thought! Today’s post sort of snuck up on me. I had thought about an easy peasy card and had made it earlier on in the week but forgot to blog about it until last night!

I was flipping through a couple of 6×6 paper pads when I thought to do what I had been meaning to do for sometime. (Now if that last sentence made sense to you then kudos to you because I’m not sure what I just said! lol)
Now when you look through these paper packs you’ll find pages with multiple patterns in them that make great trim and edging.
For this card which measures: 5 1/2 x 4 1/4
-select a patterned strip and cut (Bo Bunny, Blitzen)
-cut mat (Bazzil Java Cardstock)
-stamp image (Stampers Anonymous, Mini-Holidays)
-stamp sentiment (Stampers Anonymous, Winter Sketchbook)
What I love about this card is the clean and simple design. I often get caught up and am not sure when to stop embellishing. If you wanted to bling up the card a little, instead of using a mat, use a couple of thin stips of Be Creative tape and some microfine glitter. You could also add some pearls or rhinestones too! 🙂
