Clean and Simple Challenge Week 3

Well . . . this started out clean and simple, but something was missing.  It just didn't look right.  You know how that goes.  You do a little tweaking here and there, try different paper combinations.  You put it aside for a while then come back to it with fresh eyes and tweak some more.   It's a little more than I wanted, but it's "kinda" clean and simple.  What do you think?


To begin, tape the stencil, LL327, Baby Shoes, to card stock using removable tape and emboss with metallic copper embossing paste.  Remove the stencil, clean it, and set the paste image aside to dry.  While that is drying, assemble your patterned paper, coordinating paper for the mat, and simple embellishments, in keeping with the clean and simple theme.  When the paste has dried, assemble your card and you're done!

My fellow Dream Teamers are better at following directions than I am, so don't forget to check out their blogs to see what they've been up to.  Start at the Dreamweaver Stencil's blog, Dream it up! and then follow the links to the rest of the team.  Then get to work on your own project and link it to the Dream it Up! blog using Mr. Linky.  That way we can all see what you've been up to.

  6. I love this card Liz. Ribbon and a button does not make it any less CAS. REminds me of the little baby shoes people used to have dipped in copper as momentos of there children's first steps.
