Y'all also know that the simpler the card design, the happier I am. Oh, I like making funky, experimental cards with unusual placements and white-on-white layers, but the results rarely fill me with as much joy as the simplest image and sentiment placed perfectly centered or following the rule of thirds on one white layer.
As part of this year's Simplicity Christmas, I wanted to capitalize on a lesson I learned last year...making a few simple product variations on a simple design adds fun and decreases time spent on making Christmas cards.
Of course, variations are easier if you have, ahem, a bunch of stuff in your stash.
So a very simple, basic design gets a little different treatment using three different forms of red embellishments, proving once again that you can never have too much stuff. Having three forms of essentially the same thing can serve a stamper quite well, thank you very much.
And here's the proof:
|Small Red Pearls|
|Close-up of Small Red Pearls|
|Red Nail Heads|
|Close-up of Red Nail Heads|
|Close-up of Red Rhinestones|
You are, of course, entitled to your own opinion as to which looks better.
No matter which you prefer, however, you simply must admit that having all three is preferable to only having one or two.
And if you only have one or two in your stash, I won't judge you if you run out and buy the ones you don't have.
That way, I won't have to feel guilty about longing for those stupid enamel-looking dots all the super-star stampers are using on their cards these days, right?
Of course I'm right.
