What is a smile

Day 2 of Clean and Simple week.

I love the simplicity of this card. I sometimes really struggle with very patterned papers and this is just the easiest way to break up the pattern and make some lovely cards.

Take your card (in this instance I used a square card). I cut the paper about 15cm - 20cm smaller than the card.  Cut the paper into 4 sections and mat the sections onto green card. Place 3D foam on the back of each square and evenly place the four squares onto your card. Pick your greeting or image and mount it onto green card as well. Place 3D foam on the back and place centrally on the card.  Ta da.....All done.

This is a great simple card and when can be done with 4 or more pieces so long as they are evenly sized.

Happy crafting everyone.
