The card for this week was one I just made from rectangles and squares. This is a great way to use up scraps! The triangles were cut with a square punch, then cut in half twice, so you don’t really need a punch. I know there are a lot of you out there that appreciate when there’s a card design that doesn’t use any special tools at all. So if you have a way to cut paper, you’re good to go on this one :). I used a rub on for the greeting, but any sort of sticker, stamps, or even handwritten greeting will work. Thanks for stopping by!
Sparkles fix everything lol….well anyway, if you have sparkles and add embossed stamping to it, you can’t go wrong. This card was so spectacularly easy! I picked 3 butterfly stamps from 2 different sets (the top 2 are from Inkadinkado’s Gemstone Insects), and even placed them all on the same acrylic block to stamp.
TIP: If you place several stamps from different sets onto an acrylic block, just make sure they are the same height so it stamps evenly.
To make this plain card fancy, I embossed the stamped butterflies in silver, then also used glitter paper and a small length of silver and white ribbon. So easy and fast! Thanks for stopping by!
Sometimes it’s fun to take a simple shape & give it a little twist! This card is an easy one, and elegant for a ladies birthday. You can also change up the colors, lace & flowers for another trim & embellishment & turn it into a guy’s card! Use what you already have & design your card. I would love to see your projects!

I started with 4 square pieces of paper, 1 -1/2″ each, and then used a corner rounder on two sides of each square. I also used lace, layered flowers with a gold glimmer brad, a birthday wishes stamp (or gold birthday stickers are great too!), black ink & iridescent gold embossing powder.
