Clean & Simple Saturday

Pin It Now! An easy, simply layered card for a busy Saturday...with Stamping 411's Saturday sketch.

I took down all of my Christmas decorations today, and as much as I miss the holidays (I really do!), I love how plain and clean my house looks when all the Christmas fluff is packed & gone. So keeping in the spirit of plain, clean, and pretty, I finally grabbed a coffee & headed to the craft room to rest my feet & unwind!

I do love repetition in cards, so if one banner's good, and one Apothecary label is good, then more is better, right?!!

I layered the hearts as well. Punched 3 from glimmer paper, scored on the white side down the middle & fold each in half. Apply sticky strip to one half of each heart & stick them back to back, leaving the last two with no adhesive till you're ready to use it. I like this 3D heart because it'll still fold flat to mail.

Here's the sketch:

CARDSTOCK: Crumb Cake, Shimmer White
DSP: Attic Boutique, Glimmer Red
STAMPS:Apothecary Art, P.S. I Love You
INK:Soft Suede, Crumb Cake (sponging)
ACCESSORIES: Framelits Labels, Small Heart Punch, Linen thread

Have a blessed & creative day! Erika.


  1. I LOVE your triple banner!! So eye-catching! Gorgeous card!

  2. Gorgeous card! I really like how you matted the Framelit. Great idea!

  3. Yes, the banners are HOT! The more the merrier! How come you got time to stamp? I took my tree and decorations down today too and now it is 4am and all I can do is go to bed?

  4. This card is great! I love how you cut and layered the label. I'm so glad someone else confessed to taking their decorations down yesterday - I did too!

  5. Erica, thanks so much for leaving me a comment on my SSC237 card. Your enthusiasm for it made my day! I'm just checking out yours and I'm loving the duplication. Your card is simply awesome with all the little details including the standup and show off glimmer hearts... too cute! I'm now your latest follower.

  6. Oh this is awesome Erica! You are so talented! Awesome job with the sketch!

  7. Great job Erica. Love all the texture and's just beautiful.

  8. I am loving the dimension on the heart. Thanks for playing along with the Stamping 411.
