Minimalist Cards...

These super simple cards are based from the Monochromatic cards I posted here on Thursday, 
but are basically the same concept...

When I was editing the video of the original card (shown below...), 
I noticed how cute it looked even before I put the larger plain white piece over the stamped piece 
and thought I would see how they looked as cards...

So, I started making this one in Bermuda Bay to have just the ONE stamped layer, 
but when I stamped the sentiment on, it was crooked! 
So, another small piece of cardstock to the recuse to cover it. 
I just "smudged" the edges, stamped the sentiment, and assembled.

However, I still wanted one with just the one stamped layer, 
so I made another one in Peekaboo Peach... very simple!

Flourishing Phrases Clear-Mount Stamp Set

They just use a card base 
(5 1/2 x 8 1/2 scored and folded at 4 1/4 OR  like the Peekaboo Peach above, 4 1/4 x 11 scored and folded at 5 1/2), 

a piece of white cardstock at 4 x 5 1/4, 


 and a stamp set (Flourishing Phrases is what I used)

The Bermuda Bay card does need the third piece of cardstock cut at 2 x 3 1/2.

So, which do you prefer...

the more involved Monochromatic Cards or the simpler Minimalist Cards?
