KISS in cardmaking (Keep It Simple, Stupid)...

Sometimes, simpler is so much better, I think ...

Here is the original card I made, using cuts (top/bottom)
from my new Cricut SOPHIE cartridge,
and a banner with text in the middle, with ribbon:

and here is Version Two ...

Same cuts, but without that fussy banner in the middle.
I simply set the greeting on the computer and printed.
It also could be stamped, if you have something
that works:

Since I was going for kind of an "Amish" look,
I think the bottom one works much better.

What do you think?

I like the bottom one better although they are both good.

Very cute cards! I love them both but if you are going for a simple look the bottom one for sure:)
Thanks for the Scrappy Love on my blog, I am super happy to see that you became a follower it means a lot thanks bunches. Also while following you I came across another blog that you do. The one with Special needs Children. My heart is touched. I worked with Adults with special needs for years and was a supervisor for a group home and over the day training group as well. There is nothing more rewarding than working with this amazing group of kids and adults. You are truly an undercover angel for loving and caring like you do...
Thanks again for the love, and i too became a follows of yours.

Wow ... that is a hard choice! I think both are awesome, but my eye is drawn to the more simple 2nd one :-)

it's so hard to remember KISS, we all love to embellish but 9 times out of 10, less is more.
Hello my friend,

Oh! difficult choice, depends on the occasion I would think, but I would go firstly for the second card, LOVE them both though.

Yes, they are BOTH great, but I like the second one better.

Hope you will stop by to see my new projects.
