For this weeks Clean and Simple
Challenge, I created two cards. I made one for my son’s friend and the other I made, because I had my Paris stamp set out sand thought it would be fun making a French inspired card. For the rocket card, I started with a base card made from Whisper white cardstock. I then added an embossed layer of Pacific Point card
stock. I then added a strip of Whisper White cardstock, followed by a piece of Celebrations DSP. I then used a Top Note Die with a Whisper White cardstock. I put the cardstock through 4 times to trim the Top Note down to make a smaller frame. I then stamped the frame with a stamp from the Pun Fun stamp set. Next I stamped the same image on to a piece of Poppy Parade cardstock as well as a pice of Pacific Point cardstock. I trimmed elements of the rocket from the coloured cardstock and adhered it to the image stamped on the Whisper White cardstock. I punched out a series of stars using the Small Star punch nd adhered it to the frame. I then attached the frame to the base card using foam pads.

Sorry the Image is blurry. I am not sure why the smaller image is like that.
For the French Inspired card ,I started with a base card made from Very Vanilla cardstock. I added a layer of Love Letter DSP, followed by a piece of Cherry Cobbler and another piece of Love Letter DSP. I then used the Top Note Die to make two frames. One is Cherry Cobbler and the other in Very Vanilla. On the Very Vanilla, I stamped the image of the Eiffel Tower from Paris stamp set and adhered to the base card. I then stamped the post mark image and punched out with a 1″ Circle Punch. With the 1 1/4″ inch punch, I punched out a Cherry Cobbler circle. I adhered the Cherry Cobbler circle to the Very Vanilla circle. To finish of the card I adhered the circles to base card.
