Stampin' Up! Quick and Easy Thank You Card

Sharing a quick and easy thank you card featuring Stampin' Up! Birds of a Feather Designer Series Paper on this hot and sunny Saturday! 

Need to put a card together fast? This is one that uses a few supplies with a clean look in cheery colors.  It's also a bit smaller than a Standard Size A2 card, 3 1/2" x 4 1/4", yet still works with our Standard Size Envelope and perfect for a quick note.

Here's the how-to:

  1. Cut card stock for base to 3 1/2" x 8 1/2".  Fold in half.  (Island Indigo)
  2. Cut a 4" x 1 1/2" strip of designer paper (Birds of a Feather).
  3. Punch one end with a 1 3/8" square punch as seen HERE in this video tutorial.
  4. Cut a 1" x 4" strip of Summer Starfruit and punch border. (Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border).
  5. Adhere border to one long side of of designer paper. Trim as needed.
  6. Stamp sentiment ( Itty Bitty Banners- wood, clear) in Whisper White Craft Ink on Raspberry Ripple.
  7. Cut sentiment with Bitty Banners Framelits and Big Shot.
  8. Adhere designer paper piece toward either right or left side of base. (see photo)
  9. Adhere sentiment,overlapping the designer paper at bit.
  10. Draw faux stitching with white gel pen.

There you have it, a quick and easy Stampin' Up! thank you card!
