Today's "Clean and Simple" card was made specifically for the Atlantic Heart Sketch Challenge #110 and then a few days later, it was entered into Aud Challenge #134.
The focal point of the card was made by stamping the cherries on white cardstock, coloring them with alcohol markers and then fussy cutting. The frame was cut from a die, colored and adhered to the focal base. The cherries were backed with foam to left them above the frame.
Panels of DSP were cut on the diagonal and adhered to a white card base. The focal piece was backed with foam for dimension then adhered to the card base. The sentiment was stamped and the gems added as shown in the sketch. The inside of the card was decorated along the bottom edge with a thin panel of the DSP.
