Clean & Simple Father's Day

Hello everyone,

There is nothing I love more than a clean and simple card and tonight's is no exception. I used today's Clean & Simple Stamping sketch as inspiration for a great Father's Day card.

The printed layer is BasicGrey Marrakesh. The blue paper is of unknown origin from my scrap bin. The orange layer is Stampin' Up Really Rust. The edges of these layers is punched with Martha Stewart Gothic Arches. The bottom navy layer is textured with Sizzix Small Dots. The sentiment is Stampin' Up All Holidays. The ribbon is Stampin' Up Dusty Durango 1/2" Grosgrain. The brads are from Multicrafts.

I really like this card. I love the orange and blue colour combination. The BasicGrey Marrakesh paper is phenomenal - I love every sheet in this package. This striped paper goes with pretty much everything. I have to say I'm also enjoying the Martha Stewart border punches. Those arches, especially layered, are pretty awesome.

I hope you enjoy this card and come back to SPI again soon.



  1. Beautiful card! I love the rich, bold colors.

  2. Fabulous card, and I agree those papers are scrummy!

  3. Fun dsp choice. Great job with the CAS sketch.

    It's a good life!
