Simple Concepts and Blocking

Back in the day, color blocking was a very common practice in scrapbooking. It may still be today, but I've not scrapped in about 12 years, so I'm supremely out of touch. 

I like using blocks on cards--a 3 x 3 square grid is particularly appealing to OCD me--but for today's card, I just separated the image and the sentiment onto two panels and left them white-on-white with no colored cardstock. 

To the paper and ink, I added a single, tiny rhinestone. 

The stamps are from Simon Says Stamp's Sending Sympathy set.

Mercy, grace, peace, love, and kindness,



  1. Love these cards. Simple. Beautiful.
