Cards Made Fresh: A Simple Card to Make

Thanks again for joining me in me as we end our Cards Made Fresh Series! I am so excited you're back for one more card. I hope that this series has helped you dust off your tired 2012 paper crafting techniques, and has shown you fresh ideas for your card-making featuring paper from GCD Studios new 2013 collections. Today's card uses the modern and trendy paper found in Charleston and combines the fresh color combination of this collection to create a card that's fresh in it's simplicity, because sometimes you just need to make a simple card.
Simple cards don't need to have lots of white space or devoid of embellishment. You can use simple techniques to make a card in minutes. This card was made by trimming patterned paper strips and adhering them to a card. Then, you just fussy cut the flower, stamp a sentiment on some scrap cardstock and tie to the card with twine! This card took me about ten minutes to make, just from using paper, cardstock and embellishments found on my desk!

Thank you for taking the time to check out this series! Playing with these collections was a lot of fun. Stay tuned for more tutorials filled with ideas that will help you branch out in your paper crafting.
