Card Making Tips:

  • Let pretty papers do the work for you! For real, this is my secret to making quick and easy cards. Patterned papers add the color and design to your cards in an instant.
  • Pull colors from your pretty papers to use for your card stock and ink. What I love about Stampin’ Up! designer series paper is that they tell you EXACTLY which colors coordinate with it. This is a life saver for someone as color challenged as me!
  • Pop your greeting up with dimensionalsIt’s amazing how something as easy as that can add so much to your card.

It’s as easy as that! Grab some pretty paper and give it a try.

Happy Stamping!
