Playful Alphabet Color Block


This is a fun and easy card that requires no stamping at all.  I think the hardest part of it was lining up the letters.  Of course, I had my trusty T-ruler to help me do that.  If you don’t have one of those, you need to get one.  They are very inexpensive and they make lining up things so much easier.

To make this card I first cut a 2.5″ x 2″ square** using Poppy Parade, Pacific Point, Granny Apple Green and Daffodil Delight card stock.  Then I cut them exactly in half corner to corner.  To help me place them as perfectly as possible (don’t look too closely) I cut a small strip of light cardboard the width of the space I wanted.  This kept the distance even around all of them. I attached them to a 4″ x 5.25″ piece of Basic White cardstock.

I cut the letters out of Basic Black card stock and layered them onto a piece of Basic White cardstock that I had cut out using the Stitched Rectangles Dies.  I then popped it up using Stampin Dimensionals.  I adhered that layer to a Basic Black card base.

**I realized that I had cut the triangles using the Layering Squares dies and then cutting 1/2″ off one side.  These dies are retired so I figures out how to cut the squares out without dies.


Don’t forget it is a great time to join the Stampin’ Up!® family.  During the month of May you get an extra $25 in products in your starter kit.  You pay $99 plus tax (shipping is free!!) and you can choose $150 worth of products.

  1. Susan, this is absolutely wonderful. I love the colors, design and approach to the greeting. The greeting is perfect for the geometric aspect of this card
