Inside the card, I added a journaling cut-apart and again, used strips from design paper on either side of the cut-apart.
Here's a view from the side where you can really see the "step". Wouldn't this be pretty displayed somewhere?
I used a lacy Cheery Lynn diecut behind the cut apart. It adds a festive look to the card especially with the fussy cut mask and flower in the front of it.
Sometimes, simple is good and it can be a bold statement. Don't be afraid to use an image like a cut-apart as the focal point of your card. Embellish the cut-apart with a flower or trim and it will look great. I am guilty of over thinking my projects, and I have a tendency to keep piling on the "stuff", then I say to myself, "Maggi, simple is good, leave it alone!"
