The Easiest Card to Make Ever

Today I have a card that would be perfect for someone who wants to give someone a hand-made card, but doesn't have a lot of time to spend in the craft room.  This card is also perfect for mass-producing since it takes so little time.  As many of my long-time readers already know, I do a card ministry, and I often need a lot of cards really fast.  This is my formula:  find a great piece of designer paper and stamp a sentiment on it!

Now, I did add a few little extras to make the card more special:  but you don't have to do these things and the card would still look great.  I embossed the sentiment using copper embossing powder, and I added adhesive crystals and used a corner rounder on the top right edge.  But that is it!  Easy-peasey!
 The card was for a couple's anniversary, and the sentiment is from retired Stampin' Up! "Elegant Inspirations".
 The beautiful designer paper is from Bo Bunny "Gabrielle Collection".
I liked the style of this card so much that I used it as the image for my new Etsy store!  Yes, if you haven't heard, I finally set up an Etsy store.  You can visit me HERE and favor my shop if you'd like.  I only had time to list old retired Stampin' Up! stamp sets there so far, but I hope to soon list my cards and other crafty creations soon!  I also added more stamp sets to my "Stamp Sets for Sale" page on my blog if you have been patiently awaiting more!

Have a great day!  Amy


  1. What a great idea to use the designer paper with a sentiment to create a quick card. I often don't know what to do with papers that have large images on them, and this is so perfect! Congrats on setting up your etsy shop. I am following it. You have some great stamps for sale! I have two etsy shops, kind of wish I had my stamps and cards in one shop...seems like I always end up making things more complicated...

  2. Beautiful card, Amy! I love finding pretty designer papers, and they make card making so easy!

  3. Oh WOW!! This is fabulous!!! I cannot believe that this is designer paper. I should look through what I have because I know I could do something like this. I have so much paper. Congratulations on your Etsy shop!!
