KISS: Keep it Simple Sweetie

Wishing for time you simply don't have?  In a simple answer... yes!  Sometimes keeping it simple is the way to go. 

Minimalistic designing, though, can be a challenge.  Here's a quick recipe for keeping cards simple:
  1. Find a tiny focal point.
  2. Frame it in the center of your card 
  3. Add a relatively small sentiment below the small image.
  4. Don't be afraid to crop the image.
  5. If it is too simple for your taste, add a simple embellishment (see my tiny flower below).

Here's a digital card I made for GCU.  I wanted to focus on the hands playing the guitar.  Other ways to embellish this card is to create a little texture in the background.

So, give it a go and kiss something today.   It simply may be the most fun you have with the little time you have!

Have a happy day,

  1. This is very sweet, Luci. You have made a beautiful card. I would be too tempted to keep adding layer upon layer, and would completely lose the look, but yours is utterly gorgeous!


I do appreciate your comments. Thank you for visiting!
