Design Team Reveal: Clean and Simple Challenge
Clean and simple can take on many shapes, for Pinky it took shape on this 8.5X11 layout using #202 Lunch Bag Kraft Cardstock as the page base, carefully painting the edges in blue. Then using the #1024 Vintage Dictionary Pages as the matting for the photographs. She also used the Lunch Bag Cardstock again as a double matte. After applying the title and label tape she stamped a little bit of coordinating paint randomly all over the page for a more artistic look to match the vintage style photos.
Tracy has created a CAS card using Brown Kraft Cover Weight cardstock as the base. The designer paper is also matted on this paper. The main mat of the card is Buff Ivory Cover Weight cardstock. The pretty camellia image was stamped on to some vellum and the butterfly is also inked vellum. A Natural Twill Tape ribbon and bow were added to the bottom of the card.
Vintage Dictionary Pages create a cute border for the photo and a Buff Post Card Shipping Tag makes a perfect journaling spot. Visit Kristina's blog for more detail about this layout.
