It seems these days, that I haven’t had as much time to play with paper as I would like, but a week or so ago, I sat down and made this card with a friend in mind. It came together so fast too!
Are you familiar with Simple Stories? They make scrapbook paper, and I think it is some of my very favorite! They have a line called [email protected], they are 12×12 sheets and they are sectioned off for you to cut apart really easy, see what I’m talking about here. Well, I decided I was going to use a 3×4 card from this paper and make a card. I found the one I wanted to use and cut it out, then I stamped my “hi” on it then wrapped it in twine. Next I cut out the teal striped paper to be mounted on the kraft cardstock. I sent that through my Cuttlebug (OH.MY.GOODNESS! Have you ever used one of those things?!?! SO.much.fun!) and then put it on my card. After that I used dimension dots and put the smaller piece of paper on top. It was so fast!
Don’t you just love that embossed paper? I do! I hope when I sent this card in the mail to my friend that it brightened her day!
On a side note, did you guys notice my flower frog? I’ve seen these in pictures before but never knew where to get them. The cute girls over at Cake for 2 posted about it and I headed to Micheal’s the next day and picked one up! They are on the floral aisle btw.

Beautiful work with the Simple Stories (one of my favorite companies)! The embossed striped paper looks great and adds such nice texture. Just found your blog via Blooming Homestead. Hello from a fellow scrapbooker/card maker and your newest follower. 🙂
Cute card! I bought the same folder from Stampin’ Up! so will be making a card just like yours this weekend!
