Clean and Simple Note Card

Hi there! Happy Tuesday! I went Clean and Simple (CAS) with today's card. I know you know by now how much I love my buttons, bows, paper piecing, and stitches, especially when playing with my My Favorite Things stamps. This card shows how easy it is to use those MFT images for CAS cards, too!

I am putting together a wine themed basket for a silent auction, and I wanted to include some notecards/invitations. I wanted to keep it simple, because the winner of the basket might not like all that "stuff" on their cards, ya know? The cocktail napkins that I purchased for the basket have a trio of wine glasses on a white background, so I recreated it on the cards.

The wine glass image is from Girls Night Out, and the sentiment is from Meet Me at the Cafe. First, I stamped the center glass on the cardstock. I masked it using an Eclipse Masking Panel, then I stamped the other two glasses. I colored with Prismacolor Pencils blended with turpenoid. The only embellishments are two scored lines at the bottom and some sheer burgundy ribbon. I also stamped a matching Kraft envelope.

That's it -- easy peasy! It's a simple, personalized addition to the basket. And, it took me no time at all to make a set of eight cards. I think I'll look for some more ways to use my images for CAS cards -- I'll let you know what I come up with! :)

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Have a great day!
