Ideas for clean and simple cards | Altenew

by Alex

Hello Everyone!

Today I’d like to share with you some ideas of card design. I wanted to create something fresh and bright but I just wished it must have been clean and simple style with a lot of “white” space.

I used my all time favorite “Hibiscus Bouqet” stamp set by Altenew. I started to stamp flowers on a watercolor paper and watercolored them loosely with Zig markers. I chose purple, pink and blue shades for my flowers. They are bright, bold and beautiful. To make this design you can use any floral images or abstract images you have.

I then cut the paper in several squares and decided to make 2 cards at once. You can combine the squares in different combinations to make your own design. It could be anything – a rectangle, a triangle or a circle.

I stamped sentiments on card bases and popped up the squares with foam tape. That’s it!
