Clean & Simple My Way!

Hello Rubber Cafe' Fans!  Hope you are having fun creating with your August Creative Cafe' Kit.  I know I have enjoyed using all the wonderful products in the kit!  
Today I have 2 clean and simple cards......well they are clean and simple to me!  Sometimes you just need to sit down and make a quick card using the supplies you have on hand and the Creative Cafe' Kits are perfect for this!

Here is my first card.  As you can see it is pretty simple.  

I used the black cardstock as my base.  I layered some of the gold cardstock and patterned paper together.  Then I used a scalloped punch to give detail to a strip of the patterned paper.  I stamped the sentiment from the Add-on Laurels stamp set, onto a die cut and layered that onto a corresponding die using the gold card.  To finish I added the ribbon and threaded it thru one of the cardstock buttons included in the kit! 
For this second card, I stamped the roses and vase onto the white cardstock die cut and then I also stamped a couple of roses on a scrap piece of cardstock.  I then colored the roses with my copic markers and fussy cut them out.  I added them using 3d foam squares around the vase.  The vase was stamped onto some patterned paper from the kit and glued into place using Scrap Happy Sheer glue.

As I said this is my version of clean and simple.  I know to some they might seem a little more involved but you can change things up to be best fit your style!  

Thanks for stopping by today!
