CAS "Just a Note" card...

This card is so super clean and simple, I feel like I MUST have missed something in its creation.

 I didn't even make my own card base. I had this gatefold card base in my stash (it's been there for years), and I decided it was time to use it.

The poppy die that I have used is an unbranded die, but Memory Box makes a very similar one. Simon Says Stamp sells it here.

I'm sorry I don't remember who manufactured the stamp for my "Just a Note" sentiment. It could very well be a freebee that I got with a papercrafting magazine.

As you can see, I used some shimmery silver card for the poppies and my sentiment was heat embossed with silver embossing powder.

The inside of my card has been left blank so I can write a personal note.

I want to say a special thanks to all of you who left notes for my granddaughter Polly's cards, which I shared on this blog post. She was thrilled by your kind words. It was so much fun to see her smile and hear her giggle as she read each one. You definitely brightened a little girl's day and made her feel so proud!! It's one thing when Grandma tells her she's done a good job, but it's something quite different when veteran papercrafting ladies she doesn't even know tell her that. Thank you again!

Thanks so much for stopping by, and remember to laugh--a little or a lot--every day.

Beautiful card. I love the shimmer of the silver paper. I like the gate fold cards but seem not to use them much. Will have to get on that.

Beautiful colour of card and the silver sets it off perfectly! You may feel you have "missed something" but I don't think you have! It's just perfect! Have a lovely evening! Luv & Hugs. Hazel xx
