A friend asked me to make some "plain and simple" note cards, no layers of cardstock, no ribbons, no bling, just "plain and simple" for her. Now, most of you know that CAS is just not my gig~I have to keep adding embellishments until...well, it's not a CAS card any longer :o)
However, I think I came up with as "plain and simple" a card as possible...she can take the ribbons off when I'm not looking ;oPI stamped the images of the bugs and flourishes, then added the Embossing Powder and heated with my Heat Gun. Also, cut out the top right corners of the card for a little more detail.
Cardstock: Natural Parchment by XeroxStamps: PTI "Fancy Flourishes"; Inkadinkado "Patterned Bugs"
Ink: Tsukneko, Inc :"Pearlescent Orchid", "Pearlescent Purple", "Pearlescent Beige", "Pearlescent Sky Blue"; "Ultimate Metallic Purple"; Filigree Clear Embossing Powder.
Tools: Deco Fan corner punch by Martha Stewart
Embellishments: sheer ribbons from "Shades of Elegance"

Thanks for stopping by ~ Sorry I've been MIA, don't get much time for crafting these days.
