Simple Style - Card Class Day 1

Hi everyone!  For Christmas my wonderful husband got me a great gift - a class from Online Card Classes called Clean and Simple Card Making 2.

Clean  and simple is a tough style for me, so I took the first class they offered by Online Card Classes last year and found it really helpful.  I've been looking forward to this new class since Christmas, and the first lesson was yesterday.  We were asked to create a card based on one of the ones that they showed in class.  This is the one I made:

 Since I noticed my stash is running low on birthday cards I stamped a simple sentiment in the centre of the card.

Supplies used for this card:

Card Stock:  Neenah Solar White, Stampin' Up!  Perfectly Plum

Stamps:  Mark's Finest Papers You've Got Style, Recipe Card Starters

Ink:  Colorbox Fluid Chalk Ink Charcoal, Versamark Watermark Ink.

Mist:  Mister Huey Pinstripe

Embossing Powder:  Martha Stewart Bright White

Adhesive:  Foam Squares

Tools:  Paper trimmer, bone folder, scissors, Martha Stewart scoring board, heat tool, embossing buddy, Cuttlebug, Spellbinders Nestabilities standard circles.

I love the thicker misting on the right - I tried but didn't work for me!

I found I did have to spray a few times to get it to work. I think the trick is to spray to the side rather than right on the card. I usually go way overboard with the mists but this time it seemed to work out. :)
