Keep it Simple Monday
this tag that Tim created during his 12 tags of Christmas and thought...why not translate this same technique to a card! I used lovely vintage paper from Kaiser Craft and glued it directly to a card base. The paper included pictures of these fun hot air balloons so after attaching a piece to the card base, I simply cut two of them out from a second piece of paper and popped them up with foam tape. Then I added the rhinestone flourish (from Prima), a punched band, ribbon, and lovely glass button (from a dear friend who attends my classes at Wholly Scrap!), and ok...a stamped sentiment (from Verve) to finish the card. Start to finish - about 10 minutes! Now that's what I call simple!! So don't cover up those pretty decorative papers, use them as backgrounds on your cards! Enjoy!
