A Blank Card

Sometimes it's nice to give a just because. I like to make cards that do not have any sentiments on them sometimes because if I need a card for something unexpected I can just grab it and write it out! So, that's pretty much what this one is for.

The pattern papers are from s-e-i Madeline stack, which is full of beautiful, coordinating pages. The ribbon is Martha Stewart. I used the Pagoda cricut cartridge and cut out 3 flowers with the shadows at 1 1/4", 1 3/4", and 2 1/4". I added a silver brad in the middle of each. Pop dot are between the layers to give it some dimension. I also inked the edges of the plaid base with a grey from Color Box and the leaves with olive from Color Box. I love their inks!

Helpful hint: tape the back of the brads because if not they slide and you can see the prongs. I learned the hard way!

Let me know what you think!
