Easy Card Recipe



I wasn't feeling too hot Monday and I needed something really simple to make me feel accomplished but without any stress.  I worked up this very easy card.  It is inspired by the Grid Challenge at Shimelle.com.  I think you could CASE this easily with a lot of different stamps - especially those small stamps that are sometimes hard to use.

Recipe:

Tool:  1" circle punch
Paper:  4 Designer papers in small tone-on-tone patterns.
2 solid cardstocks
Twine
4 small stamps and 1 greeting stamp

Cut the DSP into 8 - 1 1/4" squares.  I used 2 squares of each color.
Stamp images in white cardstock and punch.
Stamp greeting
Arrange squares on a piece of solid cardstock - 5 1/2" wide by 2 5/8" high.
Add circles with foam squares
Assemble adding twine.

I did a few of these for my OWH box and they lifted my spirits.  Creative pursuits always do that.

Thanks for visiting today!

Ingredients:  Stamps:  Season of Friendship by Stampin' Up!
DSP:  Sweet Pea by SU!
Cardstock: Choc Chip and Baja Breeze
Twine:  Martha Stewart
