Simply elegant congratulations cards

Today I'm sharing a few congrats cards I made recently, that I think are good examples of the beauty of keeping it simple. I'm often wooed by clever folds, layers & techniques, but often I make a  clean, elegant design, I love it just as much.

The recipients of these cards were also friends with each other so I thought it would be fun to make 3 soft & elegant cards that were also variations on a theme. The gorgeous So Detailed thinlit dies fit the bill perfectly. These dies have not seen anywhere enough love since they appeared in the Occasions Catalogue & now they're retiring - are you in shock too? They're still available as of now & on sale so if you love them, I'd suggest you get them soon. 

The large floral die in the set is so intricate & cuts so beautifully that I wanted to make it the star of the cards. The Falling In Love paper dsp (sadly now sold out) gave a soft, subtle &  pretty background. I couldn't resist a little bling (who can?) with the congrats sentiment from the Sunshine Wishes die set.

Take a closer look at each of the cards...

So, what do you think? Simple & elegant? Leave a comment to ask any info you need or just to say hi. I'll be back soon with more ideas. Thanks for visiting today.

Inky wishes, Di
