Making It Simple

I have a wide range of cards I make from one layer to over the top and lately I've been stuck in the over the top mode but thought I would show one of the simpler cards I made. Just because it's simple doesn't make it any less pretty!! Here I used the set Zoo review and since I hadn't used the Giraffe image I used that one here. I stamped it by inking it with a mixing it with cajun craze and gold shimmer paint which gives it a really elegant look. I spritzed the base card stock with Log Cabin smooch spritz to give the base a bit of shimmer too. Then added some coordinating cardstock and dsp with a couple of brads and that's it!! It's got this great subtle shimmering effect that really looks great in person! Happy Stamping!!
