Our challenge this week was to create a card based on the layout on pg.37 of the SU Spring-Summer Collection 2008 catalog (the Save the Date card). It is a very simple yet elegant card - which is not my style at all. Don't get me wrong, I like the simplicity of it, however, I can never seem to pull that off. My cards always look plain to me.
The above card took all of about 5 minutes to make - definitely something I should do when mass producing (like Christmas cards - since I didn't get to send any out this year). It took longer to edit the photo to post on my blog than it did to make it. I like how it turned out, but I'm always wanting to add to my cards. I made myself follow the sample and finish without adding 'extras'. :)
