Minimalist Monday

Let's call this a Minimalist Monday post. I'm throwing this one out there to remind you how little you need to make a powerful card.


Isn't all that white space GLORIOUS? Or perhaps you're starting to break out in hives thinking about using so little to say so much? Either way, part of what makes this work is the overall triangle shape of the sentiment and the row of hearts. Also, its placement on the bottom third line works best because the hearts extend higher above the sentiment than below. If I'd placed it on the top third line, it would have looks squished.

Hard to believe anything could look squished with all that white space, right?

Heart-shaped bling. Love it so much!!!

Look for the new One-Layer Simplicity Challenge on Tuesday...and that's no April Fool's joke!

Supplies
stamps: Gina K
ink: Memento
