American Beauties - Congrats Card

Hi guys! Jen here with a really clean and classic card that would fit so many occasions. I always feel a little lost when it comes to making cards in January. I'm not sure if it's because I am still burnout from all the holiday cards or perhaps it's simply because there are no solid card holidays in this month. Who knows. Recently I have realized that January is a great month to make all of those miscellaneous cards, or perhaps to build up your stash for the long year ahead. Well again, today's card is very clean and really focuses on the beauty of these JFF stamps. 

This card is made from a black base and features the American Beauties stamp. This stamp is large, gorgeous, and totally in charge! As with most JFF stamps you can really view all of those beautiful details that set our stamps apart from the rest. This stamp would have looked equally as nice if I decided to color it in, however for this card I wanted to keep it simple. 

For the card I used a black base with a white base title on top. I stamped the image straight onto the white paper, using a black ink. I then topped off the card with some marbled gems and a grey toned sentiment. Another option for the sentiment would be to white emboss one of our sentiment stamps onto black cardstock. As always play around with your designs and see what works best for you. 

Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you enjoyed this clean card. If you are interested in this stamp make sure to head on over and check it out (right now it's 40% off!!) 

What types of cards do you focus on in January?
