Hello CAS-ual Fridays fans! I hope you are having a great week so far. Maria here with you today sharing some very simple cards with pretty patterned papers and bold sentiments, showcasing my favorite stamp set called “Be”. Here’s what I used for my projects today:
As paper crafters, I’m sure you can relate that we all have a bajillion collection of patterned papers! Sometimes when I am not feeling all crafty especially when experiencing jet lag, I want to create some very simple but beautiful cards. I always look at my collection of patterned papers and bold sentiments stamp set. The “Be” stamp set is just what I needed today to create some encouraging cards. This stamp set is a must-have!
Some of my non-crafty friends used to tell me that they just didn’t have any patience to make hand-made cards. If you are a beginner and you don’t have a lot of supplies (or have no patience to color and die-cut), you can still make pretty cards by collecting some amazing stamp sets like the one that I used here and some beautiful patterned papers.
For my first card, I cut a patterned paper that I purchase from the craft store and adhered this piece to my card base. I think the sentiment I used for my card below went perfectly well with the images on the paper.
To finish my card I simply added some white dot details to the images with my Sakura Gelli-Roll pen.
This card only took less than 2 minutes to make but I think it will definitely make someone’s day. The bold sentiment complimented the busy background. Here’s a close-up:
For my second card, I used a rainbow patterned paper and a die from my stash to die-cut the middle piece. I adhered this piece onto my A2 size card base with some foam adhesive. I stamped the sentiment in the middle.
To finish the design, I added the white die-cuts using the Jumping Jacks Fri-dies. I also added some sparkling clear jewels.
Don’t you just love the simplicity of these two cards? I hope you got inspired today. Please visit CAS-ual Fridays stamps to purchase the supplies I used. Don’t forget to use my coupon code below, for 15% off your order. Have a wonderful day and happy crafting!
