Here is a cute and simple card to begin your week. I got this stamp for $1 at Walmart! How cute is this? I have seen several that are very similar, made by other companies, that are so much more expensive! I made this card using four different stamp colors in the Stampin UP! set of Earth Elements. I then stamped the image on 2x2 white squares and roughed up the edges of the white and the craft paper and then applied it to the blue base card. I thought the blue just "worked" even though the rest of the card didn't have any blue. I added the twine because it just needed something else....do you ever feel that way? Ribbon was going to take away too much from the card but twine was just right! This card winds up being 4.5x4.5 inch square. I made a 5x5 envelope and stamped the same image on the outside of the envelope. The envelope tutorial is HERE.
Have a great day and remember, it is always homemade!
