Sending Warm Fuzzies

I am currently taking the Clean & Simple Card Making Class and am REALLY enjoying learning how to make the most of clean and simple cards.  My favorite kind of cards to make are clean and simple cards, but sometimes I feel like they look too simple or "boring". . .especially when I see so many gorgeous cards that have lots of layers and lots of embellishments.  I love those cards, but my brain works better with the clean and simple!  LOL

For this card, I punched the tree using an EK Success punch and mounted some patterned paper on the inside of the card with foam adhesive.  I white embossed the Hero Arts sentiment onto dark brown cardstock and adhered it across the bottom of the card.  The finishing touches were score lines on the left side and top of the card, and some irridescent bling scattered around the tree.   

Thanks for stopping by!  Hope you're having a great day!  SUPPLIES USED:  Stamps- Everyday Sayings (Hero Arts); Ink- Frost White (Colorbox); Paper- Choice Snow White (Taylored Expressions), Holly Jolly Christmas Collection (Echo Park), Dark Chocolate (PTI); Accessories- bling (Hero Arts), white embossing poweder, tree punch (EK Success);  Finished card measures 5.5"x 4.25"
