Simple…But Sweet!

What can I say…but cute, cute, cute! If you are experiencing a card 911 and need a card in a hurry, then this design is for you! This darling little card was inspired by one designed by Mary Fish of Stampin‘ Pretty! Mary is an inspiration to stampers of all ability levels, with her clean, fresh designs.

The wonderful feature of this card is how quickly it can be assembled! It spotlights StampinUp’s new Summer Love Rub-ons, which are featured in the Occasions Mini Catalog (available April 1st).

  • Using Whisper White card stock for the card base, I scored two lines across the top using the score lines on my Enveloper.
  • The center rectangle was cut from Baja Breeze on which I used the Corner Ticket Punch to jazz up the corners.
  • The small strip of patterned paper, from the Patterns Pack Two Hostess Level 1 Gift was given its lacy edge courtesy of the Eyelet Border Punch. Of course, the Scallop Circle Punch was used for the center, while a small paper punch provided the small border embellishment.
  • Using the Summer Love Rub-ons, I selected the butterfly to add just the right touch of spring! To add depth and dimension, the center circle was popped up with a Stampin‘ Dimensional. Pretty in Pink ink was applied to the edges of the scallop using a sponge dauber.
  • As a final touch, a small snippet of ribbon added a burst of color.

If you love to punch you will certainly have fun with this card!

Notice the Changes!

With the help of my fellow Pretty Pal, Carrie Fitch of Creative Cards by Carrie , I have been able to add links to the Stampin’ Up catalogs and my website! Thanks, Carrie…I could not have done it without you!

Sadly, Sale-a-bration is coming to an end. However, you still have time to take advantage of all of the perks that go along with SAB! Don’t forget that for every $50.00 that you spend, you are eligible to select an item from the SAB catalog. My personal favorite is the Polka Dot Punches set which coordinates with several of Stampin’ Up’s most popular punches. And, check out the designer paper. Remember that you can never have too much paper!

Until next time…Happy Stampin’!
