Here is a clean and simple card that we made at Stamp Class.
Sometimes it is fun to make a card that can actually be sent in the mail! The postmaster just smiles when he sees me now!! He is thrilled that I take the time to make so many people happy with my cards and of course..not said...I spend more money at the post office!!
All of the materials used for this card are from Close to My Heart.

I am entering this in the following challenges:
divas by design challenge: Birthday Celebrations
(T) anything challenge: Birthday Celebration
(T) tuesday throw down: Birthday Celebration
(M) incy wincy designs: Something old: Sentiment Stamp/ Something New: DP
(S) birthday sundaes : Must have Birthday Sentiment on Front of the card
(SAT) send a smile 4 kids challenge: Anything Goes...for a child
(F) card makin mamas: Birthday Cards

I hope that you have enjoyed this post. Creating a simple card is fun and so easy to send. Just choose fun colors. They really don't even have to match! This is a perfect sketch for a boy/man birthday card. Please feel free to leave me a coment and/or become a follower of this blog. I hope that I have inspired you to try a simple card or just case this card using simple, classic shapes. Thanks for visiting:)
