Simple “Thinking of You” Card Idea

Stampin up demonstrator blog catalog card ideas order betsys blossoms rubber stamping

Today's card is a good example of a quick card requiring minimal supplies.  I used the leaf stamp from Betsy's Blossoms (new in the 2012-2013 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog) to create a background.  Easy, yes?  My inspiration was from the front of a bedding catalog.

STAMPIN' PRETTY TIP:  To line up brads in just the right spots, use a paper-piercing tool and piercing template.  Watch my Stampin' Pretty Video Tutorial for more details.   Stampin' Up! introduced the Essentials Paper-Piercing Pack in the new catalog.  It takes the simplicity of the paper-piercing technique to a new level of exquisite.  Note how the patterns coordinate with Stampin' Up! Punches (p. 182-185), Edgelits (p. 190) and Framelits (p. 191).
