Clean and Simple...

Paperwings, the site for all Angel Company Demonstrators (run for and by the demonstrators themselves) is at it again!  It is time for another Blog Hop.  The theme for this one is "Clean and Simple" or CAS for short.  In the papercrafting world, "Clean and Simple" means no to one layer of card stock, minimal bling,  and very few elements to the design.  If you want to read more about the "Clean and Simple" design I found this great explanation and examples by scrapnframes.com.

My cards used the Maggie Paper Collection, white card stock, and the Trendy Greetings stamp set from The Angel Company.  I used punches and brads, and that's it!!

For this card I used a strip of 1/2" strip of paper along with a paper flower.  A large white brad is found in the center of the flower.  The sentiments are stamped at a slight angel.



This card has 3 flowers with brads in the middle.  I rolled the edges of the petals so they would have more of a 3D effect.


You will find more Clean and Simple creations from participating Angels at these sites.  Enjoy the blog hop!

what cheery cards, Rita! I love the "3-D flowers"! and the sentiments at a jaunty angle work in perfect harmony with the flowers on both cards!
