We all love the detailed, time consuming, layers, and embellishments on a beautiful card but sometimes the simple ones are just as amazing!!! We can also create lots of simple ones real fast to have on hand or as we are walking out the door for that Birthday Party!!! The other bonus is most of these items for these 2 cards are laying around your craft room or space or drawer!
How cute is this? It could be a Birthday or Graduation card!!! Super simple with a Whisper White card base and some scraps of Designer Series Paper. These pieces are from the Brights Backgrounds Designer Series Paper Stack and I just cut them into triangles. There is no exact dimensions or anything. I just slide the piece into the Stampin’ Trimmer diagonal and cut, tilted it the other way and cut again. The pieces look like a mess but then I added them to the card and it looks fabulous! For the greeting, I used the A Dozen Thoughts Stamp Set for the Wish Big and the dots came from a NEW stamp set called Friendly Wishes! This stamp set is coming out in the 2015-2016 Catalog on June 2nd!!!
Here is another simple one that was made with triangle scraps. Start with a Whisper White card base, layered Basic Black (4″ x 5-1/4″) and then decorate your Whisper White piece (3-3/4″ x 5″). I took my Snail Adhesive and did 3 lines on the Whisper White – 1 at the top, one about 1/3 of the way down and one in between those!!! Now you don’t need to add adhesive to all of those little pieces of Back to Black Designer Series Paper! I placed the first triangle down a smidge off from the center. I didn’t want a strict center piece so I leaned it a little to the right as my starting point. After that I just filled in on both sides. I layered a piece of Basic Black cardstock (3-3/4″ x 1/2″) over all of the ends at the bottom! I added my greeting from the A Dozen Thoughts Stamp Set and a few Rhinestones and I was all set! Perfect Wedding, Anniversary or Engagement card! Look what you can do with a greeting stamp set and some scraps! Quick and Simple!!!
I got the idea for these cards from a fellow stamper – Mary McCormick, at Spring Into Stamping! Another great card that uses up scraps is this one here but it does take a few more minutes than those above! Love it!!!!
