Because I Care (posted by Claire)

Hi, Claire here with a card that was well out of my comfort zone. I'm usually a 'more is more' kind of crafter and find the clean and simple style very tricky but I wanted to show this gorgeous background stamp from Dusky Damask off.  


It was literally 5 minute card, the background stamp was stamped onto a shaped card blank using Chipped Sapphire distress ink. The sentiment (from Pretty Poppies) was stamped with the same ink and I added a little navy blue bow. 

I hope you like it

  2. I don't do CAS either much. This is so pretty and love that it's so quickly put together. Sometimes this kind of card is so handy.
