When I got the Safari stack from DCWV I was stepping totally outside my comfort zone. The idea behind the purchase was to make more neutral or even man type cards.
The card on the left is a very very simple design. The card front has been totally covered with scrapbook paper from the DCWV Safari 8x8 stack.
The bar on the left was attached to dark brown card stock and cut with decorative scissors. My thinking on using the scallops was to match the circular patterns on the paper.
Next was stamping the paw prints. These were an unmounted stamps that I have had for ages and have absolutely no idea who made them. I punched them out with some Punch Bunch punches. The bottom layer is from a paint chip.
The Happy Birthday is from Hero Arts, with partial paw prints on the top. This punched square was then layered onto corrugated paper that had the edges heavily sponged with dark brown ink.
There is nothing creative about this card. It is the image that was already on the paper found in the DCWV Safari 8x8 stack, simply glued to a card base.
With the right scrapbook paper cards can be really really fast and simple.
It would take nothing to stamp or computer generate a small phase, punch, cut or tear it out and attach somewhere on the front. Ten minutes at the most and you have an attractive card.
