Confident Direction!

Good Monday Morning! Did you have a good weekend? Did you get to get inky this weekend? :D Any plans to do so this week?

I was blessed to be able to stay home most of the last week; I'm going to start getting busy these last six weeks before we leave, so it was nice to have some days where I didn't work too hard. :D So Saturday, I worked on some challenges and this card, which I've been wanting to do for a while.

First, I like it because it's a very clean and simple design. It's also a great masculine card. And it uses the Simply Scored for the border - which IS on all four sides of the stamped greeting, even if you really can't see the left because of my camera angle! :)

It's SUPER simple - just cut your Whisper White card stock at 4"x5-1/4"; you're going to score three times on all sides, at 1/2", 4/8", and 3/4". I just kept turning my card stock, so I wouldn't have to give you more math! (Some of you HATE figuring out mats, etc! :D )I stamped BEFORE I did the scoring, so I could make sure my image came out cleanly!!! The colors of the Stampin' Write markers I used are Midnight Muse and Gumball Green - and the card base is Midnight Muse. The stamp is from WORD PLAY; I really enjoy that stamp, but since I don't like to cut things out - like the arrow - I don't use it much. THIS, however, I can see myself making quite a few of. I LOVE clean and simple! :D

 OK, I'm outta here! So much to do, so little motivation.... :D Have a WONDERFUL day, and let me know what you think of this one. :) And be sure to make the time to STAMP something, would ya?!? :D

I love the look that scoring gives to a card, but always forget to do it!
