Simple Elements

Although there seems to be no limit to the new paper crafting products on the market, you need only a few simple elements to make a beautiful card. I think today's card is proof: One stamp set + one ink pad + three colors of cardstock. That's it. No fancy tools, no punches or dies, no embelishments. This stamp set is called Elements of Style. It is a very versatile set that I will be sure to show you more of.

The focal piece takes a little time to cut out, granted, but the rest of the card is so simple and I think it is well worth the effort. You will want to be sure you have a good, sharp pair of scissors. Stampin' Up!'s paper snips are just perfect and a real value at $9.95.
