{5} You're Invited


I am going to be adding a new category today called 'No Layers, No Problems'. I believe that not every card has to be a 3 hour, multi-layer, production. Now, don't get me wrong, I like ornate cards as much as the next girl, but sometimes I need some quick and easy cards and I just don't have the time to put into it. That's where cards like this come in. Simple but classic. I think this 'You're Invited' card is so flexible. Invite someone over to dinner, for a cup of coffee or just to have a movie night. I made this particular card en masse, because I like to send 'just because' notes inviting some one over for the aforementioned and I think this card evokes the causal nature of the invite.

This card also showcases the new 3x4 set by Little Paper Shop called 'You're Invited'. I stamped the main sentiment in Ruby Red, the dotted line in Brilliant Blue (you are going to be seeing A LOT of this dotted line this week and in the future, I think I'm in love, but more of that later), the flowers are in Tempting Turquoise and lastly the doodad is in Pumpkin Pie. Sometimes, simple is just better.

Also, how GORGEOUS are those flowers behind the card. My grandma sent me them yesterday!! Thanks Sue, they're wonderful.

I hope you are enjoying the new releases, I am LOVING them. They may be my all time favorite. Again, make sure to check out all the other fantastic design teamers.

What a wonderful card! You are right not all cards need to have layers. I think we have gotten away from doing non layered stamped cards. I know I feel funny doing them. Look forward to seeing more of these stamps!
