So called "simple" cards are, at least for me, very difficult to pull off. Simple easily becomes boring. I'm not where I want to be on simple cards, but I thought I'd post this effort, nonetheless! I used SU's Holiday Thyme Paper for the tree and Mini Mates for the Star. (The idea of creating a tree with patterned paper is from Julie Ebersole). I punched holes in the tree with my Japanese screw punch (awesome tool). I stamped "Merry" in Thyme ink, using a set of clear polka dot alphabets from Amuse Arts, trying my best to align the letters with a Stamp Ma Jig. I used an SU Real Red marker for the dots in the tree and for the star. The card itself, a 4.25" square, is made out of SU's Naturals Ivory paper.
