Less is More - Red, White and Blue...

This card is for Fathers day and only uses 3 colours (red, silver and blue) on a white card. The stripes are stamped directly to the card blank and then edged with blue and red Promarker 'stitching'.

The circles are from the same collection of stripey stamps, but this time they are circular.
I found the #1 Dad stamp in the same stash at Its Crafting Time.
I tried to keep it down to as few elements as possible and only added the one additional layer.
Not sure that there is enough white space for it truly to be clean and simple, but I like it!

I will be entering this card at: - red, white and blue - show me your spots - stripes - anything goes/fathers day


  1. Awesome RWB card for Father's Day. He's sure to love it:)

  2. This is a great card for Father's Day, but has rather a lot of layers for us at "Less is More". As we are solely a Clean and Simple challenge, we like to see lots of white space, few layers and minimal embellishments!
    Do join us again.
    Thanks so much

    1. Actually, the only layer is the spots on top! But I did know I had completely covered the white background with the stripey stamps. I had fun though!
