When it comes to card making, I believe "simple" means quick, easy and a minimal amount of supplies. Single stamps from Stampin' Up! fit that description and are budget friendly, too. The Elizabeth single stamp ($9.95) is nothing short of stunning and can define a card in seconds. Just add a sentiment and go!
Now about adding that sentiment . . . I love the benefits of Stampin' Up! clear-mount stamps. They make image placement so much easier. However, the area for the sentiment on the Elizabeth stamp is a bit tight for lining up quickly. I don't trust myself "eyeballing" it–even with my reading glasses. Plus, let's face, it don't have the patience for a Stamp-a-ma-jig on a quick card.
Today's 1 Minute to WOW Video Tutorial shares a simple way to add a variety of sentiments and get a clean and classy look–without the work! UPDATE: I flipped the video so the card is right side up!
