Keeping it simple

When I'm not paper crafting or reading my Kindle or playing with the grandsons (not necessarily in that order) I teach high school math. I was telling another teacher recently about the OWH (Operation Write Home) organization and we discussed starting a card making club at school. We also are considering a faculty/staff night once a month to make cards.

Since the students probably won't have access to a lot of supplies, I will be providing from my stash. Thus came the thought: I need some examples on how to make a very nice card without all the expensive embellishments. So here is one of my simpler examples:

Three papers (both plaids are from Paper Pizzazz), 5 brads (4 gold, one leaf) and a sentiment cut out of dark green vinyl on the Cricut. 

I hope we get a good response from the staff and from the students. Especially from the students: true crafting spirits creating quality cards. I know the talent is in the school, just have to tap it.
