C4C267: Clean and Simple Thanks

Hello, Crafty Friends -

For my second card of the year I have my take on the latest challenge from Crazy 4 Challenges. This week the team is ringing the New Year in with a Clean and Simple Challenge.

I think I accomplished the “clean” part of the challenge but it isn’t the “simplest” card that I have ever made. ;)


I used a mix of products from Taylored Expressions and MFT Stamps. The delightful “heartfelt Thanks” sentiment is from the In & Out Thanks stamp set, which features some amazing font styles and oodles of different sentiments that you can build. I stamped the sentiment using Memento Luxe Pigment Ink on white cardstock. I also used the Lots of Dots Embossing Folder from TE to emboss the Taffy cardstock (Bazzill Card Shoppe).


I wanted a bit more texture on the card so I used Small Chevron Stripes Stencil from MFT Stamps to ink up a piece of white cardstock with VersaMark embossing ink. I then coated the paper with White Embossing Powder (Ranger) and heat set.

Once cooled I used the Stitched Square Stax from MFT Stamps to cut out four little squares.


To embellish I used some white crinkle ribbon from May Arts that I tied into a bow along the top of the embossed panel. I finished with a few bright green enamel dots.

So, is it clean and simple enough? Or should I have my dimensional tape taken away. lol.


  1. I love this card, clean for sure...but not exactly simple. At first glance you might think so though. Love the little stitched squares over that gorgeous chevron embossed cardstock!

  2. Sorry, I meant WITH that embossed cardstock. Typing on my phone :)


Thanks for your sweet comments! I love hearing from you. :)
