Back to the Basics a blog hop!

Welcome to the Technique Blog Hop! This month, we are going back to the basics! You will see many different things (and maybe a few versions of the same thing) I know you will see some things that you forgot about, and maybe even a few things that are new to you! I can’t wait to see everyone else’s things, I know you will too! So, you should have gotten here from Krista’s blog, but if not, it’s a circle, and you will get back around to her!

Today I went back to the basics, and let my paper do the talking for me! (at least mostly!) I grabbed two pieces from the newly available Cedar & Pine paper packet, a piece of linen cardstock and a piece of black cardstock! Keeping the design basic was key to all of this!

Let me share the sizes with you!

Black: 4 x 11
Linen: 3 7/8 x 5 3/8 (x2) & 3 3/8 x 1/2
Evergreen B&T: 3 3/4 x 3
Red B&T: 3 3/4 x 3

Super simple! I could easily get 3 cards from these sheets of cardstock!

I used the Say it in Style stamp set for the sentiment. I could totally make this card be for ANY occasion! There are so many great sentiments on this set! You will definitely want to have it in your stash!

I added a bit of the black velvet ribbon to finish it off and give it a nice polished look! You could easily use a piece of black cardstock to get a similar effect, if you don’t have that ribbon yet!

Oh, and just to give you an idea of how ‘back to basics’ this card was . . . . I had TOTALLY forgotten that I was supposed to do this hop! When I signed up I was going to do a different technique, however, when I remembered, I had just over an hour and a half to design, make, photograph, edit, and type up this whole post. Plus wait for my food that I had just ordered and then get home! Just so you know, I did it, and I have a few minutes to spare, even! (so long as everything doesn’t crash when I hit publish! hahahahahhaa!!)

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed my card with a back to basics card design! Now, leave a bit of love below, and then hop on over to Melissa’s blog to see what she has for you!

Until next time, have some crafty fun!
