Unbounded Love Hope Clean and Simple PP694

by Joanne James16. June 2024 08:00

Today it's Sunday and time for this week's new challenge over at The Paper Players! It's the turn of the fabulous LeAnne to host this week and she has a clean and simple challenge for us to work with:


Yay - clean and simple week! I decided to go with encouragement, as opposed to sympathy, for my card today - take a look:


Here's the low-down on today's card:

The 'Unbounded Love' stamp set has a great selection of sentiments and that's where I found the ideal sentiment for my encouragement card:

I covered the whole of my card front with a piece of the Thoughtful Journey designer series paper; whilst this does leave me with less 'white space' than I would usually feature on a clean and simple card, it made light work of my card design. I added my sentiment label decorated with a tab of (retired) Misty moonlight ribbon, and a few tinsel dots to complete my card. I added an offcut of paper inside my card and another sentiment from 'Unbounded Love', along with a trio of hearts from 'Bee Mine':


Super simple and with minimal layers and embellishments - and an encouraging sentiment that is sure to inspire. The Unbounded Love bundle is one of the bundles that is available with an additional 10% off during the month of June, so if you purchase it this month it represents even better value. I'm also playing along over at Festive Friday with today's card; I used purple, blue, clean and simple and ribbon from their inspo list. 

Here is the visual summary of the key products used on today's project for you to pin for easy reference:

Joanne, such a great card.   I love that paper!  The sentiment is just perfect for the FF challenge.  The ribbon is the perfect finishing touch and your choice of embellishments perfectly echo the colors.  So glad you shared this with us at Festive Friday this week

What a wonderful way to show off this gorgeous designer paper, Joanne! This is my kind of card...one where the paper does all of the work! I LOVE the ribbon treatment and the embellies. The Unbounded Love stamp set is full of great sentiments, just like this one!
