Create a simple greetings card using the Message in a Bottle stamp set by Stampin' Up!

A simple Emerald Envy coloured octopus greeting card made with the Message in a Bottle stamp set by Stampin' Up

Sometimes less is more... 
Quite recently I've been concentrating on simple cards that only need a few supplies.

It is so easy to create detailed cards with tons of embellishment, ink and other bits and bobs. However, it is just as easy to create a gorgeous card with just a few items.

'You Octopi my thoughts' greetings card made with Emerald Envy ink and the Message in a Bottle stamp set from Stampin' Up

Today's card is a fine example of how you can create a professional looking card with only a few Stampin' Supplies. Detailed and elaborate cards are lovely, but they often cost a lot of money to create and are time consuming.

Today's card is made with Whisper White Cardstock, some Basic Black and Emerald Envy Ink and one stamp set - Message in a Bottle.
The images comprising the Message in a Bottle stamp set by Stampin' Up! including a ship, mermaid, octopus and more.

It was then put together with some Snail Adhesive.

Isn't it gorgeous? Tomorrow I will be showcasing a stepped-up version of this card, but still only with simple stamping.
