One of the things I love about stamping is you can be as simple or as complicated as you wish. Sometimes you need a card quickly. Usually that is when Rob comes home from work and asks for one for one of his employees or friends. It reminds me of when the kids used to tell me right before they went to bed that they were assigned snack the next day. In Rob’s defense I have never had to run out to the store late at night to buy anything and I don’t mind going to my stamp room to make him a card.
This card took me about 5 minutes to make. Seriously, the hardest part was cutting the paper to size. I took a piece of Nature’s Poem Designer Series Paper and backed it with a piece of Blackberry Bliss cardstock. Then I adhered it to a piece of Petal Pink cardstock. The celebrate stamp is from the stamp set called Picture Perfect Birthday. The stamp actually says “celebrate the good stuff” buy I masked off “the good stuff” part and just stamped the celebrate using Blackberry Bliss Ink. To mask off part of a sentiment you just cover the part you don’t want with a Post-It Note or a piece of Washi Tape, ink the stamp and then take off the tape before stamping. The hardest part is remembering to take off that tape. Believe me. I have forgotten many times! Then I cut out the You with a die from the Celebrate You Thinlits set.
Designer Series Paper is great for adding some color and dimension to any card. It saves you time from having to stamp something. Stampin’ Up! offers a large variety of DSP with matching cardstock packs to make ordering even easier.
A lovely card – and no one would guess it only took you 5 minutes! But then, you are a seasoned professional! 🙂
This is lovely, Susan! I love the colors – and, as Deborah said, no one would guess it was so quick.
