Rich & Handsome Congratulations Card

Stampin Up, Suite Sayings, Congrat card idea-Mary Fish, stampinup

Today’s congratulations card is simple, masculine and offers bold pops of Stampin’ Up! Emerald Envy and Night of Navy.  I’m diggin’ those stars as well for a “success” card!  This card was created by my Stampin’ Pretty Design Team.

I love hearing from you!  Please leave me your questions or comments about the project for today.


  • Squares and rectangles make this design super simple. The base is 4 1/2″ square in Emerald Envy Cardstock.
  • Measuring up!  The stripes are layers of Night of Navy (1 1/4″), Whisper White (15/16″), and a sliver of Night of Navy (1/4″) down the middle.  Great way to use those card stock scraps in your crafting space!
  • My Stampin’ Trimmer made cutting even the smallest stripe a cinch.  IMPORTANT UPDATE:  Stampin’ Trimmer Cutting Blades (126995) will be available to order on Aug. 1!

  • Suite Sayings provides a crisp font and knows just what to say for many occasions.  It’s a sentiment stamp set that goes the distance!
