Clean and Simple: Simple Embellishments


Day six is all about creating simple embellishments.  On my first card I created a cute little hot air balloon out of three punched circles.  I first saw this technique here on Gayatri's card, and I pinned it because I wanted to try it some day.

Here is a peek at the inside of the card:



I had an idea for a CAS masculine get well card, using just one die cut:

  14. Oh I love both. The first one is such a cute and simple idea, you did a great job on that adorable card. Love the second tree one too. Boy, that seems to be the perfect guy card. Not sure why we always think trees for guys but we do and it works.
