Clean and Simple with Newton’s Nook
Happy Monday from Skyway Drive. I have a clean and simple card for you that also has lots of versatility. Newton’s Nook Dainty Daises. Newton’s Nook has great sets that are super for scene building and for clean and simple cards. You should pop over and check them out.
These flowers color up so nicely. I chose to do my card in blue/violets with a peachy orange center. I shaded some of the flowers differently. Some are darker along the edge and some I did down the center.
They look really great in fall colors too! yellows, golds, oranges and rust! Numbers correspond below for the color combinations.

Jill, I like this! A lot! I have a question for you. You’ve got two different types of white cardstock on this card. Why? Is one heavier than the other? And do the whites match nicely? Thx!
Great question! I love the Neenah for my card bases. I prefer a heavy base especially since I tend to add layers. The Hammermill is what I prefer to color on. Since I use this combo on really all my cards the whites are pretty comparable. Pulse when you add in a patterned paper it helps. But they are really not noticeably different. Keep in mind that I do generally cut my colored images so you don’t generally see a lot of white. Hope that helps!!
