Today’s Simple Saturday card uses only two colours – Rose Red and Pumpkin Pie.
And these two colours are both used in the Sweet & Sour Specialty designer series paper (DSP) package shown on page 172 of the Idea Book & Catalogue so it seemed only natural to include this DSP in my card making as well.
I created a card of Whisper White and added a piece of Pumpkin Pie cardstock that is 4-1/2" x 3-1/4". The right hand side corners were rounded with the corner punch. The next layer of cardstock is Rose Red and measures 4-1/4" x 3". Again, the right hand corners were rounded with the corner rounder punch. The last layer is Whisper White and measures 4" x 2-3/4" and of course, the corners were rounded also.
I stamped the "thanks so much" greeting from the Three Little Words stamp set in Rose Red ink. I positioned the greeting on the right hand side of the Whisper White cardstock a little ways up from the bottom.
The Sweet & Sour DSP was cut 1-1/2" wide and adhered to the Whisper White over four 3/4" punched circles that alternate between Rose Red and Pumpkin Pie. The last step was adding a length of Pumpkin Pie grosgrain ribbon on top of the punched circles where they meet the cardstock.
Quick and easy card making for Simple Saturday.
