Madison Avenue

I tend to make cards using DSP, so I decided to try to make a few using only stamps and cardstock. So along with my quest to use supplies I've had but ignored, I also wanted to try to make a few C & S (clean and simple) cards. Here is one I came up with.

Card Front
On the front of the card I used two stamp sets: Madison Avenue--for the flowers--and Outlined Occasions for the greeting. I stamped the images using Pear Pizzazz and Calypso Coral inks on Whisper White cardstock and popped up the image using dimensionals. I added brads to the center of the flowers. These are Stampin' Up brads in Calypso Coral that I found tucked away in a safe place. I can't even remember when I acquired them but they sure worked well on these flowers.

Inside of card
For the inside of the card I used Calypso Coral cardstock and and stamped the image on Whisper White. I added printed brads in Calypso Coral to finish off the flowers. Overall I'm happy with the result.

I really do love how the brads work so beautifully with the flowers. This is such a sunny, cheerful card!
