Clean and Simple Birthday Card Idea

This past weekend I got to do a lot of stamping – and it was wonderful!  I got to play with favorites from the new catalog!  If you are looking for a clean and simple birthday card idea, here is one for you!

I decided to go with an option that is pretty trendy right now, and has been for a while… but one I really have to fight through.

What is it?

Putting your layers on your cards crooked.

I like things nice and neat, straight and well… not crooked!

Trying it forced me out of my CCZ (Creative Comfort Zone) and the more I do it, the more I like it… sometimes 🙂

It just depends on the card AND on the recipient!  Like I could nevah!!!  send a card with a crooked layer to my sister.  She simply could not handle it.

But my teenage niece would LOVE this card!

This one is so very, very simple to make.  You can make this card in MINUTES.

Here is the clean and simple birthday card idea…
