Day 5: A Week of Simple and Chic Fall Card Ideas

There’s something about a 4 x 4 card that makes me smile, especially with these sweet fall images.  This size isn’t eligible for U.S. mail (unless you put them in a larger envelope to meet the minimum requirements).  However, they are adorable for hand delivered gift giving or including as part of a shipped package.


  • Stampin’ Up! 1/4″ Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon is so easy to tie in a bow (much easier than the grosgrain we retired, in my opinion).  It’s the perfect touch to bring out the Early Espresso in the Orchard Harvest Designer Series Paper.

  • Quick and crisp results every time.  I love Stampin’ Up! Framelits.  The pear, stem and “just for you” sentiment images were all cropped with coordinating Framelits.  See supplies list below for details.
  • Each “quadrant” of this design measures 1 1/2″ x 1 3/4″.  I used the 3/16″ Corner Punch to round the corners.

COMING UP TOMORROW!   I’ll have a Stampin’ Pretty Pals guest stamper tomorrow sharing a holiday idea I’m sure you will enjoy.  My Week of Simple & Chic Fall Card Ideas will resume on Monday with a card  I’m itching to share!

    I found out you can mail 4×4 sized cards in 4×4 envelopes You just have to add a little postage. They actually have one stamp with the amount it cost to send a 4×4. I think it is a 64 cent stamp.

  3. Mary, This is so adorable, this stamp set is still on my wish list. I should have ordered it yesterday with the rest of my order.
    I love this card it is so simple and clean. The colors are so sweet together. Nice job.
    Thanks Mary. Happy Stamping.

  7. This card immediately put me back to fall in Madison. Something about these colors that melt my heart every single time for State Street. Love your card design Mary and your color combination is SPOT-ON! TFS!

  8. This is so very beautiful.

  9. Good morning, Mary: I love everything about this card. Again you are helping me change my mind about DSP, this is just delicious. The way the colors of the pear stamp coordinates with the colors of the paper…..really, really fabulous. Thank you for the inspiration.
