Clean Card Designs

Sometimes a clean and simple design on a card can be the hardest kind of card to make. I love the look, but sometimes all that empty space just calls out for a layer of pretty paper, extra buttons or doodads.

On today’s cards I just said “no” to that little voice in my head and kept things simple.

Both my cards today use stamps from The {Stamps} of Life. These stamps work wonderfully for a “clean” look. The {Stamps} of Life has both clear stamps and the matching digital images. The digital images from The {Stamps} of Life come in three different file types – .jpeg, .png and .abr (photoshop brushes!). I used the Clear stamps to create today’s cards.

My first card uses happy2becircles:
