TCP Tuesday-Simple Key to Success

The theme for this month’s TCP Tuesday challenge is KISS—keep it simple with clean lines, minimal elements, and areas of white space. Clean and simple cards are right up my alley, so I’m super excited about this month’s challenge.

Here's my first go at it.  I used the Key Phrases stamp set and the CutUps Key to Your Heart die to put this one together. The key’s die cut from a piece of metal tape. I peeled off the protective backing and adhered the die cut piece to a white panel. The “to success” sentiment is stamped just underneath the key in black ink.

I added a red cardstock strip to the edge of the panel, then adhered it to a red card base with a strip of red chevron patterned paper along the left edge. A pair of notch-ended red cardstock strips, topped with a red button, fills out the empty space at the top to balance the design. It’s perfect for a graduation card—and it would be easy to customize it to match the graduate’s school colors.
