Yes! World Card Making Day is a THING! And anyone can make a card – beginning with a little bit of paper. Nothing warms my heart like an envelope with my name across the front. Tucked in with the bills, realtor solicitations, charity appeals, and credit card applications, a personal note really makes my day. It’s not hard, and it doesn’t have to take a lot of time or money either!
- Stamps: None (gasp)
- Color Palette: Whisper White, Night of Navy, Mint Macaron
- Accessories: Floral Boutique Designer Series Paper, Big Shot and Sunshine Wishes framelits, Pokey Doodle, Silver Thread
I love the look of blue and white, especially the classic look of (Night of) Navy and white. The Floral Boutique DSP has a great variety of designs and they are all Navy and White!
This very simple card using the same colors, paper and framelits with the addition of a few sequins. Honestly? I think I liked it better when it was just the DSP and the word! I thought it was too simple, but sometimes less really is more.
Switching out Mint Macaron for Emerald Envy creates a different feeling, and I added images from the Petite Petals and Birthday Blossoms stamp sets. None of these cards are especially complicated, and you could create a nice stash of cards in an afternoon using any of our Designer Series papers.
Stampin’ Up! Designer Series paper adds a quick and gorgeous punch to any project, and the part that just makes me sing is that it all coordinates. Within each package, the papers coordinate with each other. Written on each package, Stampin’ Up! lists the coordinating colors. That means you’ll know exactly which card stock, ink, ribbon, enamel shape, sequin or embossing powder will coordinate perfectly with your Designer Series paper. You can focus on being creative instead of worrying whether or not something will match! DSP is a great value for the entire month of October – buy 3 packs and get one free.
