Thanksgiving Clean and Simple Card

I desperately need to get a real camera so that I can stop taking such lousy pictures with my camera phone. (No offense IPhone 4 but you are no Nikon!)

I created this card for Thanksgiving for one of my older nephews. The stamp sets I used are Inkadinkado Autumn leaves and Inkadinkado Expression. And thanks to an inspiration post from A Blog Named Hero I decided to use some simple scoring and keep my card Clean and Simple.

My sentiment is mounted with dimensional stickers but, I added the brads for some visual interest. I love the shiny copper color of these brads and I think they give my card a little touch of class.

This card will be entered into the DYSU #96- Brads challenge. I think I may try to create a Christmas that features brads more prominently and enter that card in as well.

Happy Stamping,

Paper crafting is my Yoga. It takes my mind off any stress that I might have at the time. My daughter loves to get involved in my projects too and it is a great way to connect with her. Sixteen years ago I began scrapbooking but, my new true love is card making!

  1. Fabulous card. Thanks for joining us at Do You Stack Up.


  2. Try a white background and natural lighting Maureen. Works for my iPhone 4S . Love the colour combo of this card. X

    • I followed your advice for the last few photos I have taken and the natural light seems to make a big difference. However, I may try to get my hands on a Nikon Coolpix SLR camera for $99 on Black Friday. (That is the day that the Christmas shopping season get going in earnest here in the States.)

  3. This is beautiful! I love the shaped tag. Great design! Thank you for joining us at DYSU this week!
