super simple belated card




oh don't you just hate that feeling when you realise you've forgotten a birthday, however I do it so often I have a stamp for just such an occasion, it's from a SeeDs set and I've used it inside this card.

The front of the card, however, gave me a chance to play with all new stuff, the stamps are from the new paperartsy Hotpick 6. I have also use a die cutting die from Paperartsy for the moth. I am not a big diecutter. I love the effects but I'm just too tight to buy a decent diecutter. All I have is the x-cut impress and I wasn't sure it would work with these dies, without faffing about with shimming etc, but to my great delight they work beautifully, in fact even better than the x-cut dies!!!
This card couldn't be any easier to make but. I do love simple!

I am entering this for lots to do's wings challenge
