One Layer Wonder: Thanks!
What's super cute, really quick to create, and doesn't use a ton of supplies? I know! I know! (Waving hand frantically!) It's this sweet, one layer thank you card.
The Just Add Cake Designer Series Paper (Stampin' Up!) provided the starting point for this card. A few of the patterned papers in this collection have letters or numbers on them and I thought it would be fun to spell out words using the letters. It just so happens the 1/2" Circle punch coordinates perfectly for cropping the letters/circles. Each letter is popped up on a dimensional.
Textured Whisper White card stock provides the perfect "backdrop" for this clean and simple design. The Baja Breeze dotted pattern, from the Borderlines stamp set, really picks up the texture and looks worn or distressed.
HIP TIP: The Borderlines rubber stamps are LONG - making it easy to stamp the full width of the card. Use our lined Grid Paper (102787) to keep yourself on the straight and narrow. (ha!)
The Full Heart Punch is perfectly sized to crop this Poppy Parade patterned heart. The little scallop border is created using the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border punch (cut in half). Yes, again! I'm loving how versatile that punch is. The sweet flower is one of the small Paper Daisies, adorned with a Fire Rhinestone Circle Brad.
HIP TIP: Use Craft & Rubber Scissors (103179) to snip off any visible prong tips once the brad is splayed open.
This time change thing has me (and my kitteh's) all confused and discombobulated. The only real remedy for that is to stamp something cute. So off I go . . . !
