As I stated in another post, I have slim pickin's on card stash. After two runs to Hallmark for cards that had to go out and a lot of money later, I thought I need to 'use what'cha got'!
I always feel like a card has to be all fancy-schmancy to go out. I really like DP, that is why I bought it right? So, I got to thinking, why can't I just make a simple versatile card that would work for male, female, any occasion, feature the DP. I mean we send the cards mostly to people that do not make their own cards, so they might think that is fancy-schmancy enough right?
So, I have had this paper cut for a long time, never assembled, as I had this thought a long time ago. I liked the DP and thought that it would work for my keep it simple project. The card can open either way and can be sent out in a second for any occasion.
I paired the papers with a card stock that I have a lot of, in the cream color. This is in case I decide I want to add a sentiment or something later, or for a specific card. Added some layers to give the card some weight. Of course I layer the interior too, but am too lazy to take photos of it! I made nine of this card and it was easy cut, glue and assembly.
So, think about it....maybe you could keep it simple too! Have fun!
