Hello! Card

Before I share today’s card, I must disclose that it is an lift of an original card by Maile Belles.  She is an artist who I really admire, a very clean and simple artist.  There are many clean and simple artists, but sometimes Maile borders minimalist.  While I’m not a minimalist in life, I do tend to like minimalist design.

This stamp set from Papertrey Ink had me at Hello.  Really.

Then I saw Maile’s card, and because I already had Graceful Greetings in possession, I set to work making some minor modifications for the supplies I had.

This is a type of card I’d never have tried prior to MISTI.  However, I think it’s so easy to do!  I think I’ll do a video later to share how I did it, very easily.  As of late, any general cards I’ve been making (not to a specific person’s birthday or something), I’ve been making in sets of six or eight.  I typically send out four to ten cards a week, so having a stash is very handy.
