Welcome to Simple on Saturday where the projects I show you can be made in less than an hour using just a handful of supplies! This week I am featuring a pretty pastel card that reminds me so much of Spring & Easter!
And I have a FREE PROJECT SHEET showing you step by step how to make this card in my post below – look for the blue words!
And here it is…those colors are SO spring-like and pretty!
I used the Bricks & Mortar Embossing Folder to create the texture on the background – this has got to be my current favorite embossing folder!
The tulip stem is stamped onto a scrap using a stamp from Timeless Tulips and I cut it out – see the leaves and flower – don’t they look like I’ve stamped them?
Well, it might surprise you to know that I didn’t – they were PUNCHED out of a piece of tulip patterned paper from the NEW pack called Pleased as Punch DSP! You can find that pack of papers by clicking HERE as part of the Coordination Product Release – you can use the following punches to cut out all the shapes in that pack of papers: the Umbrella Builder Punch, the Tulip Builder Punch, the Heart Punch Pack and the Small Bloom Punch – how neat is that?
The pink and white squared paper is also from that pack (it is on the back of one of the sheets) and the ribbon is Daffodil Delight Ruched – just a strip secured to the back of the layer.
I stamped my Happy Birthday sentiment onto a scrap of white and used another product from the Coordination Product Release promo to cut it out – it’s a banner die from Sending Flowers Dies – I absolutely adore those punched holes in that banner piece!
I added a few sequins and tied a little Bakers Twine bow and voila – done and ready for giving!
The supplies are simple for this card – by using just one color of cardstock, one stamp set, one punch, one embossing folder and some inks you can create a super cute card – you can add to it as I did with a strip of patterned paper. a die cut for my sentiment and a piece of ribbon and some sequins or keep it simple – it will look just as pretty!
But I just couldn’t stop there LOL – I had some leftover pieces after doing a customer sample mailing and decided to use them up to make cards to have on hand and here are a few of them:
On these cards instead of the printed paper leaves, I used stamped leaves from the set Timeless Tulips that I punched out with the same Tulip Builder Punch.
First up a pink themed Birthday Card – the sentiment is cut out using a die from All Dressed Up Dies – it’s a really pretty label die cut!
Here’s a closer look – I love the stitching detail on the label die cut…
And here are two ‘just to say hello’ cards – simple & quick to make but they turned out so pretty!
Here is a closer look at the knot detail…
You can purchase that Tulip Builder Punch along with the Timeless Tulips stamp set as a BUNDLE for JUST $32.25 – I think this is a terrific price for such versatile items! Click HERE to find it in the store:
And here is that pack of PLEASED AS PUNCH DESIGNER SERIES PAPERS – click HERE to find it – you get 12 full sized 12×12 sheets in here and THREE of those sheets have the tulip print on them – imagine how many cards you can make using that paper and the Tulip Builder Punch!
