BSS MONDAY IDEA - Clean and Simple

Welcome to the Buffalo Stamps and Stuff Monday Idea.

Today's idea is a clean and simple card.

We all love our embellishments, but cards with lots of embellishments are hard to
mail and expensive too.  So with the holidays approaching, I thought we would
make a clean and simple card that you can mail with one postage stamp!

Card Recipe

Stamps - Bella on Bauble (CL255) Wild Rose Studio
             Inside Sentiment - Stampendous, Cling Snow Brackets (CRQ146)
Die - Spellbinder's Gold Labels 4 (S5-159)
Embossing Folder - Spellbinder's M-Bossabilities (EL-014)
Border Punch inside - Martha Stewart
Green Mirror Paper
Green text weight liner paper
Flower Soft - Polar White
Gold Stickles on the stars 
Gold Cord
Colored with Copics

Card size is 5x7 inch
I stamped the image on green mirror paper with Versafine Black
then embossed with clear embossing powder.  Run a dryer sheet or embossing buddy
over the mirror paper before stamping and embossing. Cut out the ornament and
popped it up on tiny thin foam squares over the ornament on the stamped and colored image.
Placed gold Stickles on the stars and moved it around with a stylus.

Lots of texture, color and shine, without adding a lot of embellishments.

Thanks for stopping by today. Have a great day.  Until later.............
