In case you hadn't noticed, the name of this blog is Simplicity. Simplicity means...well, it means keeping cardmaking clean and crisp in a back-to-basics, ya-don't-need-much-to-look-good sort of way.
Some stamps lend themselves to pure simplicity. Others take a little more imagination to get there. Two recent releases from Papertrey definitely fall in the first category. These are Harvest Berries and Beautiful Blessings. The ginko branches in Harvest Berries have a fabulous shape and several sizes, and the font of the sentiments and verses in Beautiful Blessings couldn't be cleaner, simpler.
Put the two sets together, and cards practically make themselves.
See what I mean?
That sentiment is my new mantra. "In every ordinary day there are a thousand miracles." Indeed.
And why not do the same with a Bible verse from the set?
And what if your verse is a bit larger? Just use the big ginko branch. It works.
A lot of the time, making a simple card isn't simple and definitely isn't easy. But this time, it's a walk in the ginko park.
Thank you, Papertrey, for such wonderful stamps!
