Step It Up Neighbor

When creating cards I plan to use as make & takes I really try to keep them fairly simple. I struggle with keeping things simple because I love so many products and the nice detail they create. Today I want to share two cards...on the left  is a card that I used for a make & take at a recent event. It is cute, but simple and quick to make. On the right is the same card, but by taking a little more time and using a few more products it is stepped up into a more detailed card.

As you can see, both cards use the same stamps and color scheme, but the second card uses more layers and textures.

Stamps: Good Neighbors & Vintage Labels
Card stock: Rose Red, Pumpkin Pie, Taken With Teal and Sweet Pea DP
Ink: Rose Red, Pumpkin Pie & Taken With Teal
Accessories: Perfect Polka Dots Impressions Folder, Curly Label, Word Window, Boho Blossoms & Scallop Trim Border Punches, Rich Regal Brads & Rose Red grosgain

Have a wonderful day!
