Is this the world's Simplest Card??


I've done two different versions for you here. They both use the brand new Upsy Daisy Stamp set, and both cards are simply a piece of A4 vanilla Cardstock, cut in half. No adhesive or layers whatsoever. If you were in need of a quick card, five minutes before you rush out the door, then this is would be it!

I stamped the daisies in Old Olive on the first one, and then stamped the sentiment (from the same set) in Chocalate brown and tied a matching grosgain ribbon around the top. That's it.

The second one is my favourite though. This one uses the "Poppin' Pastels" technique - you stamp the daisies in Versamark ink (clear), and then, using a sponge dauber, you tap the pastels over the top - so that the chalk sticks to the Versamark. Even with the addition of this technique, it would still be a five minute card. It doesnt get much simpler!

Like it? Let me know what you think? Too simple???

HI Linda,

they both look great - I think I lean towards the green one as my favourite. But the subtleness of the pink one is growing on me. I got my Upsy Daisy yesterday but haven't had time to play yet - soon I hope!

I loved your demo of this card today Linda! Definately will be using my forgotten chalks to make plenty more of these once my Upsy daisy arrives :)
