Three Easy Cards

Hello My Dear Stamping Friends,

Stampin’ Up!’s designer paper sale is ending in just a couple of days:  it ends on August 2nd.  Don’t miss out—it’s a great deal.  A lot of them are reduced to $9.78 from $11.50.  Visit and click on Shop Now, Shop Here and you’ll see the paper scrolling across the screen.

If you’d like to place an order, please use host code: WZZHP2RQ.  If your order is over $50, I’ll send you a packet with four card kits in it.  If your order is over $150, don’t use the host code so that you can claim the host rewards for yourself.

I want to share with you these three easy cards that I made.

Daughter Judy asked me to create a stamping station at a couple’s bridal shower; the men had a fly tying station.  I wanted to come up with a really easy card as I knew most of the attendees had never stamped.  (I even had some guys make a card.)

Anyway, here are the cards:

The measurements for each card are:

Card base:  8 ½ x 5 ½
Layer under the designer paper: 5 ½ x 3 ½
Designer paper: 3 x 5 ½; 6 x 2 3/8 for flap
White card stock for inside card:  5 ¼ x 4
Shimmery white card stock for greeting:  scrap or less than 2 x 4

Two of the cards use Expressions in Ink specialty designer paper, which may be the most beautiful designer paper I’ve ever seen.  It is unavailable to order until next week (the week of August 2nd) when it’s schedule to be back in stock.  Sale-a-Bration starts on August 3rd so it will be a good time to order it.  I would order it the day it becomes available as it is SO popular.  I’ll try to keep an eye out and let you know when it’s back in stock.  (155464, $15)

The two cards that use the Expressions in Ink dsp each have a layer of gold foil as the second layer.  The Shaded Spruce card uses the green designer paper and the Polished Pink/Magenta Madness card uses the pink designer paper.

The Hydrangea designer paper used Highland Heather as its base and Granny Apple Green for the second layer.  Unfortunately, the Hydrangea paper is now retired, but you can make these cards with any designer paper.

This is such a classic layout; you can use it for any occasion.

Please let me know if I can help in any way or if you have any questions.  Call or text me at 303-888-1862.

Many hugs, Pat
