I have a really tough time making clean and simple cards. I like to overdo and keep going long after I should probably call a card done! I found a technique last week on CardsTV that I thought was super cute, and decided to give it a try!
I started with a thick piece of white cardstock and stamped my image and sentiment...a cute car from Mark's Finest Paper's Classic Dad stamp set. Next I embossed the top of the card with a Swirls Background embossing folder, and the bottom of the card with a Diamond Plate folder. I used my score board to score a line, by each of the edges of the folders, mounted on black and then purple cardstock and called it DONE! Woohoo!
Happy Scrapping! ~Amy E
