Simple No Layers

This time of season is always busy. We forget that sometimes we need to simplify things. The last few days when making cards, I have been concentrating on details, layers, embellishments, etc. I wanted to crank out a fast, easy, cute, card for fun and to remember that simplicity in form can be beautiful. This is what I came up with.
Papers: Whisper White
Stamps: Season of Joy, Small Script
Inks: Always Artichoke, Real Red
Embellishments: Real Red, Always Artichoke Grograin Ribbon

This card took me.......2 minutes. And it came out fabulous!
Well, I couldn't stop there. So I made 4 more. Super fast, super easy cards. Not too bad for not having any layers, right?

The great thing about these cards is that they really are fast to make, and they are super easy. Think simple and see what you come up with!
