CAS - Clean and Simple

The definition of "Clean and Simple" as it applies to cards is lots of open space (usually neutral in color), few layers, and few embellishments.  These are usually cards that are easy and quick to duplicate.  I often gravitate toward this type of card because it does not take a lot of my time, which is often in short supply with little ones running around. 

I made this card earlier this month for National Watermelon Day, and I just love it.

Using a few circles and a punch I was able to make these cute watermelon slices.  The pink and green go so well together.

I used the "flame" from the candle on the Cupcake Builder punch to make the seeds.  Great for summer and perfect for National Watermelon Day.
