Clean and simple Birthday card

Hello crafters,

today I  decided to take Clean & Simple 3 from OOC. I enjoyed the last class - Stenciled - a lot, so I gave this class to myself.

Joining the class inspired my to do a very clean and simple card today, inspired by a picture my daughters gave me the other day.

Normally I probably would have tried to fill more of the blank space, but I think I quite like the simplicity.  I didn't take a picture of the matching envelop, but it's quite similar, I stamped the same hearts, just without the sentiment.

By the way: I created the heart stamps myself with some fun foam die cuts, because I don't have any large heart stamps. That is why the big heart is not perfectly stamped.

Happy crafting
