Friday Flashback


Today's cards were created for Splitcoaststampers when I was a member of the Dirty Dozen Design Team.  My term is over and I can share them with my Stampin' Pretty readers :)  These designs were for my husband, Scott, so that he could send out thank yous (often needing a little nudge–been there?).  I kept them clean, masculine and simple.

  • Fine flourish stampin pretty The Stampin' Up! Fine Flourish single stamp was inked in Chocolate chip and stamped on Whisper White for the focal point.
  • Textured card stock is rich and just the right amount of texture to keep the cards crisp and masculine.
  • The card below was assembled in less than 10 minutes.  Click for more of my quick card samples.
  • At the time these were created, I used Stampin' Up! rub-ons that are now retired.  However, you CAN stamp on textured card stock as an alternative.
