So... in the spirit of trying to appreciate the here and now, I pulled out my summery inks and created this card with all of my favorite bright, cheerful colors. I really do enjoy the brights, and they lend themselves perfectly to this stamp set called "Party Pennants." I've had this set for a few months, and just pulled it out last night to play. Have you noticed how popular pennants and buntings are these days? I really adore this set and it is right on trend! I love that each flag-- there are four to choose from--is a separate stamp, which makes it so easy to make a variety of pennants using whatever patterns and colors you choose. I also love that the frame is separate and there are several sentiments to choose from.
This card is my version of a Clean and Simple (CAS) card. Don't let anyone fool you into thinking that just because the word "simple" is in the title that creating a CAS card is easy! I can't tell you how much White Daisy cardstock I went through! One smear or smudge... and it's all over! I finally ended up stamping the flags on separate paper and cutting them out (pretty easy because they are basically triangles, right?), then gluing them down. So, maybe it's not a "true" CAS card... but I think it has that spirit! What do you think? Have you tried the clean and simple style?
