Minimalist Birthday

My husband says that this card is very minimalist, which I will have to admit that my style does tend to lean in that direction. I have never been a clutter person. Clutter is one of our flagship arguments we have at home. Matt wants to save everything and I want to get rid of things even if they are still usable to avoid things getting cluttered! Needless to say, this card is in no danger of being cluttered!

I sat down last night and did some stamping for just plain fun. I had nothing in mind when I started. I like to give away cards for Christmas gifts and if I am going to do that I must get going on them now. I give away alot and right now I have none! This card will be perfect!

I started with a whisper white base and then inked a background onto real red card stock. I then applied glue dots to some black grosgrain ribbon and then attached it on the back of the card. I attached the black and white brads from Square parts to the flower and attached them both with dimensionals. I then tied a small knot and attached that with a glue dot. I used my Papertrey sentiment set and stamped birthday wishes onto a file tab punch out and then using my 1/16 circle punch attached almost apricot brads to the tab and attached that with more glue dots. And wah-lah!!!! Thanks for looking and I hope you are having a great Labor Day weekend!

My daughter loves not being cluttered also. So we both love this card!
