If you need a quick and easy card layout that you can use for an all-occasion card or any occasion really, this card fills the bill! Just make a card base with some matching designer series paper from Stampin’ Up!, add a greeting and you’ve got it!
To make this easy card, I started with a card base of one of the new In Colors, Powder Pink (144244). For a card base, just cut a piece of 8 1/2″ x 11″ card stock in half (5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″) and then fold in half for your card. Just for a little extra, I made a slightly smaller layer of Whisper White to go on top of the card base with a layer of the new Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper Stack (144131) on top of the white. This new paper stack is 12″ x 12″ so you will have lots of beautiful papers to use!
For a little embellishment, I tied a new ribbon, the 1/2″ Finely Woven Ribbon in Powder Pink (144134) around the designer paper layer before I adhered it to the Whisper White. When you add ribbon, you don’t really have to have it go all the way around the layer, just adhere the ends to the other side.
The greeting is a stamp from the Flourishing Phrases Stamp Set. This is a stamp set being carried over from last year’s catalog and I’m so glad because it is a beautiful set! You will see it in the Retiring Products section in the Bundles because all the bundles of matching stamp set and dies are retiring. However, you will be able to purchase the stamp set and thinlits dies separately in the new Stampin’ Up! Catalog. If you want to save 10%, get the Bundle now before May 31st! To make it extra fancy, I layered the greeting, die cut from the Layering Ovals Framelits Dies, on to a Powder Pink oval and then onto a scalloped oval of Silver Glimmer Paper. Then just adhere the whole layered greeting over the ribbon with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
If you don’t have a Big Shot and dies, you could just cut or punch your own greeting and layers and adhere to the card. There is always a work-around.
When you need to make a quick and easy card, this is a layout you can use, or even if you want to make several cards at once to have on hand. Make them assembly-line fashion and you will have many cards in the same design very quickly!
