11/11 Flat Out Fun!

Yup . . . it's flat! Not one little Stampin' Dimensional can be found on this card . . . and it's still fun!! Every once in a while I like to challenge myself to make a flat card. I have a number of clients who prefer them because they don't go for mailing bulky cards. Now, I admit there are a number of "layers" on this card and truly, as I created and layered it was all I could do to hold myself back because I love to make those layers "pop" with a dimensional or two or three!
This card gets its layout inspiration from Stamping 411. It turned out to be super quick and easy to put together because I used Die Cut Blooms for my main images. My stamped sentiment comes from the set called A Little Birthday Cheer.
Have a great day and thanks so much for dropping by my blog, today.

I was wondering where you were this week! Super cute card Kay - and I know what you mean about the dimensionals! Haha, when I fail to use them on a card, my clients are shocked! I just tell them that "no dimensionals were harmed in the making of this card!"
Thanks for playing along this week!

Love those die cuts and love your card! I too, have been shying away from bulky embellishments. my postal carrier has me pegged as a card maker and nails me for extra postage every time!
Very Retro looking to me. I love the colors and composition. thanks for playing along.
