Make It Monday Challenge #12 - April 25

This week Nichole Heady did a video tutorial on how to easily draw a black line frame around an image on your cards.  Its took me, butterfingers, a few tries to get it right but I am pleased with the end result.  My card is now ready to be customized with a sentiment inside.  I like having some generic cards on hand so that when an occassion comes up I can just pop in a suitable sentiment and the card is ready to go.  Thanks for dropping by.

Cardstock:  white, Raspberry Fizz (PaperTrey Ink)
Clear Stamps:  All About You (PaperTrey Ink)

This is beautiful. It's clean and simple, which I love, and very striking. Great idea to leave off the sentiment until you need it!

Very fresh and clean looking. I too, like that there isn't a sentiment.

Great idea to do some 'generic' cards to be customized later! I always try to start with a theme in mind, but sometimes that drives me crazy, and I feel like it confines me creatively at times. I'm going to follow your example and try this for my stash. ;-) Your card is beautiful!

What a great card to keep on hand! That flower from All About You is one of my favorites, too. I think I need to go and make a pile of these in lots of different colors. Thanks for the inspiration!

Pretty card, Tracey! It´s always good to have some cards ready with only the sentiment missing :-)
Have a nice week!
