Stampin’ Up!’s January-June 2021 Mini Catalog has been live for one month already. It’s filled with an awesome variety of new stamp sets, die cuts, punches, Designer Series Paper, ribbon, and more. I hope you’ve had a chance to play with some of the products.
As you may know, my list of faves include the Flowering Cactus Medley and the Friendly Flamingo Bundle. (I’ve created and posted quite a few samples using these products.) Every so often, I need a bunch of cards — in a hurry. I really like the font showcased in the Happy Thoughts stamp set. The sentiments lend themselves well to all of the occasions I use the most: They include: Happy Birthday, Thinking of You, Thank You, and Congratulations.
I found a clean and simple sketch (inspired by Mary Bush), that allows me to use the above sentiments. The variety of Designer Series Paper also lets me change the look and feel of the card. I call it my Clean and Simple Happy Thoughts card.
Clean and Simple Happy Thoughts
Here are the basic cutting and card stock measurements. (Also, look for a how-to video at the end of the post):
- Card stock base: 8 1/2 x 5 1/2
- Card stock layer: 3 1/4 x 4 1/4
- Designer Series Paper of your choice: 3 x 4 (the free Sale-A-Bration choices work well as do any of Stampin’ Up!’s patterned paper)
- Label with Tasteful Labels Dies (the Stitched Rectangles also work well here)
- Coordinating ribbon and embellishments
