simple and clean - WOYWW 352

I don’t mean my workdesk, simple and clean is the current challenge at The Craft Barn.
When I first read the challenge I didn’t have a clue as what to do because I usually don’t do simple and clean, especially the clean part J

After some browsing on pinterest found some ideas and set to work on some cards, usually don’t do cards either but coincidentally it turns out I am in need of some cards as there are some birthdays coming up. So how does my desk look like after creating a clean card, well not that clean I must say.


For those curious how the card turned out, here it is


We also needed to include a flower and a sentiment.

Now I still have some more ideas, but first I'm off seeing what everyone else is up to. Not familiar with WOYWW, hop on over to our wonderful host Julia at  the stamping ground.

  2. Now, when I am in a hurry I can do clean and simple. There is a blog somewhere that does nothing but .. the name escapes me at the moment.
    As Helen said, keep going, great card.

  6. I love the gingham flower..it just sets the whole card off perfectly! I love clean and simple in most crafts, I think...I'm not one for overly fussy decorations. Thanks for dropping by, I make stuff for charity because my hands need something to do while watching TV and there's only so many blankets you can have in your house :-)
    Hugs, LLJ 14 xx

  7. I have tried over the years to do clean and simple or single layers but it just doesn't work for me. Love your space and just look at all those outlets!

  8. Your card is lovely Vicky. I love your fabric flower. Your desk looks nice and tidy to me but interesting stuff about. I like the look of your clock embossing folder. Enjoy your day. Barbxx #16

  9. A lovely card for the challenge, I really find it hard to do clean and simple, I am trying to do more especially with the price of postage but I love layers!!

  10. Great clean and simple card Vicky, but yes it's ironic that creating a card like that does involve making a mess of your workspace! Great work area, and looks as though it is very well lit. Happy WOYWW, Judith xx

  13. Clean and Simple can look classy and elegant. The reason I don't do it is because it usually requires you to measure things and line them up perfectly, and I'm hopeless at that. Plus Grungy and Messy is so much more fun! You did great with the challenge! Happy WOYWW! zsuzsa #34

  18. Really nice card - I don't do simple and clean. Thanks for popping by earlier. Steph and I were not clean today with all the black ink being wielded with a stick. Have a good evening x Jackie 23

  21. A lovely card, Vicky, and I think you followed the brief really well. I'm not so good at simple an clean - on the "simple" I usually can't leave well enough alone, and on the "clean" side I seem to be incapable of making a card without a messy back - ink smudges, glue, etc., and I try to convince myself it's all part of the design lol!

    Thank you for your lovely comment and I'm glad you like what I've done.

    Happy WOYWW,

  24. hehehe I totally know what you mean - clean and simple project doesn't necessarily mean clean and simple workdesk! Lovely card though - it was worth making a mess for! :o) Annie C #25

  29. It's just not possible to craft on a tidy desk - it's essential to try out lots of ideas even if it is a clean and simple card!! It turned out really well,

  32. cool card. I know what you mean I too struggle with clean and simple, they seem more effort than multi layered heavily inked ones!!
    Thanks for visiting my desk already
