Quick and easy is often the answer when it comes to card making. It helps to make a stack of the same card and have them on hand when the need arises. I think today’s card fits that criteria well.

To create:

  • stamp leaf from Season of Chic stamp set with So Saffron ink on a So Saffron card base
  • cut a piece of the So Saffron design from Stampin’ Up!’s Gingham Cottage 12 x 12 Designer Series Paper layered on an Early Espresso layer
  • sentiment from Biggest Wish
  • stamp on a leaf from the Leaf Label and Amber Gem Pack (You may have missed these in the July-December 2022 Mini Catalog. The leaf comes in a package of 25 precut Kraft leaves and 50 gems.)
  • finish with a bow created with the Gold Shimmer Ribbon.

I also created a matching gift bag.

Each month, Stampin’ Up!’ hosts a #simplestamping challenge to demonstrators. Create a handmade greeting card using just rubber stamps, ink, and paper. This month, January 2022, it calls for us to use a SaleABration product and a birthday theme. The challenge demonstrates that, as paper crafters, we can create something handmade that doesn’t require a lot of expensive equipment or products.

This card design of three equal panels allows you to showcase different pieces of the patterned paper. Just think of all the possibilities with the array of paper available today.
