Stamping and Card Creating is Easy as 1, 2, 3

Did you see my post the other day "New to Paper Crafting?"

If not click the link....if you did lets follow up with that post with a card that is simple and easy to create but adorable just the same.

We want to decide our colors, designer paper and the stamp that you would like to use to create your card.

Once this is all decided we have to cut our layers to the size card you would like to create.  For this card I am creating a 5 1/2 x 4 1/4" card....and I want the card to be 5 1/2" the base of my card will be 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and we will score the 8 1/2" side at 4 1/4.....
Cutting your 8 1/2 x 11" piece of card stock like this will allow you to create 2 card bases.

Now lets create those layers.....I am going to put the link here to another previous post on card here for reference cards..will you use 1/8" difference or a 1/4"?  Ask much of the bottom layer would I like to see....

As you can see I used a Mossy Meadow Card Stock base....Pear Pizzazz as my 1st layer and I did not want to see too much of the previous layer so I am using 1/8" difference in each layer.

For my 2nd layer I used the County Club Designer Series Paper....divided the card face with a strip of very thing mossy meadow and added a few pearls....

Using the layering Circle Dies I created the focal point of the card. creating a scallop circle to bring a bit more attention to the stamp I used and the scene from the DSP.  You can find the Stamp Set in the Annual Catalog.....I think it is an adorable set called "On to Adventure"

Quick and easy card front for that birthday you forgot all about.

When it comes to the inside of my cards....I like to add layers there too....inside I adhered a Mossy Meadow layer......stamped and added a strip of the front DSP to Whisper White and adhered it to the mossy meadow layer....

Can you feel the love that went into creating this card?

It's a passion!
