Another 'Clean and Simple' Birthday Card

Today's card is one I have made for my 'spares' box.
I used the September challenge sketch over at
 Clair and Sharni Get Crafty! Facebook group for the design of my card.
'That' embossing folder which was so difficult to get hold of when it came out
a while ago, is the perfect shape for this sketch challenge.

I embossed the lower part of the folder in white, and cut away the waste above
the wavy line. I attached it to a piece of embossed aqua card which I embossed
with the Sizzix embossing folder and used my Crop-A-Dile Corner
Chomper to round the two corners.

I used the de-bossed sides of both embossed pieces of card, and glued
them to the base card.
Next I used 3D foam pads to attach the sentiment, and Nuvo drops to decorate.
A very easy and quick card to make.
I have used the following products:-
Embossing Folder - Free gift with craft magazine
One of the two Sizzix Embossing Folders - Lace Set 2
Spellbinders Nestabilities - Circles and Scalloped Circles

  1. Hi Janice, what a striking card! I love the way you've combined the two challenges. Using only the two colours and combining the patterns of the embossing folders really adds a lot of elegance to your creation. Love the addition of the bright Nuvo drops...finishes the card off beautifully. Thanks so much for joining our Watercooler Wednesday Challenge this week.
