Another Simple, Quick, and Easy Card

I used Stampin' Up!'s English Garden Designer Series Paper and the tear and flip method to create the background.  Simply take a piece of Designer Series Paper and tear it across about 2/3's of the way down and simply flip the bottom 1/3 piece over and glue to Crumb Cake cardstock base. Stamp and punch your sentiment and layer on another punched piece of cardstock and adhere to card with Stampin' Dimensionals. Tie a ribbon around front of card and you are done.

Now in case you are wondering how I tied the ribbon to the front without tying the card closed, look closely at the left hand side.  I used the flower punch from Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack to create a small slot in the folded side of the card to thread my ribbon through to the front side.  If you look at the Itty Bitty flower punch, you will see one of the petal ends is pretty square and that is the one I used to create the slot.

Below are some of the cards made with friends last month using this technique and Carol showed us how to make flowers using Stampin; Up!'s new cotton paper:

Simple, Quick, and Easy Card

You can't get much easier than this when create a homemade card!  I used Stampin' Up!'s Tin of Cards stamp set, #138946 Photopolymer (clear all the way through)  and English Garden Designer Series Paper #138440, Whisper White Thick Cardstock #140772, and Night of Navy Classic Ink Pad #126970 to Create this card. That's right, just four items. Total cost for 48 cards is $41.50 (plus shipping and tax) or $.87 per card. You will then have lots of the English Garden Paper (6 different double-sided designs) left over for more cards or other projects. Just add more cardstock for additional cards. The stamp set can be used to create hello, congrats, birthday, or thank you cards.

Alternative Ideas for June Paper Pumpkin

On today's June Paper Pumpkin Alternate cards, I used portions of the envelope liner paper to create mats for the backgounds.
