Today we're going to learn how to Create Quick cards with Sale-a-bration Island Vibes stamp set! This is one of the free stamp sets you can earn when you purchase product for $50 during Jan-Feb Sale-a-bration event....here's a look at the set..
We'll also be using a sentiment from the Special Moment stamp set which is another Sale-a-bration Freebie!
Here's the quick card for today
As I've mentioned in previous posts, I often find myself in need of a card but little time--so one of my solutions is to grab one of the notecards and envelopes (they come in Basic White and Very Vanilla). They come precut, scored and ready to go--this eliminates the need for preparing your base.
Today's card is simply adding 2 quick layers to the base white notecard and adding a single stamp, greeting and embellishments...in less that 5 minutes your card is ready to go.
The plant stamp that I used looks better in 2 colors--so I nabbed my Stampin'Write markers and applied the ink directly to the rubber stamp--that way we can get 2 great colors with just one stamp.
You'll find that the Spccial Moments stamp set has all those verses that you use consistently--this time I needed a thank you card and this greeting was fresh and perfect for my purpose.
I then just added 3 of our new Adhesive backed hexagons to coordinate with the green plant and they simply added the bit of extra that pushes a card into extra special instead of just pretty.
I'll give you the step by step directions for today's card followed by the supply list so you can order your supplies today.
