“Just because” cards are my favorite kind to send because they are never late and are always a pleasant surprise!

Summer Splash card base: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ scored at 4-1/4″
Basic White: 4″ x 5-1/4″ embossed with the Exposed Brick folder
Patterned Paper: 1″ x 4″
Basic White Circle: 1-3/4″ cut with a Stylish Shapes die

This card looks great in so many different colors!

While you could simplify this card even more, I think the embossed background and the stitched edging on the circle add just the right touch of elegance to this card. That’s the magic of die-cutting and embossing! The dies in the Stylish Shapes die set cut out the shape AND add the stitching around the edges all at the same time. It’s like magic!!


The “just a note” stamp from the Simply Said stamp set is perfect for any occasion, but the greeting on this easy layout could be swapped out so it says anything you want it to.


You can make up to 8 of these note cards with just ONE sheet of 6″x6″ patterned paper so it’s easy to make a stack of them to have on hand!


Grab a few supplies and give this card layout a try. Then send a card “just because”. You’ll make someone’s day!

Happy Stamping!
