Nowadays it is so easy to send a text, email or private message through social media to tell someone you’re thinking of them. Call me old fashioned, but there’s nothing quite like sending or receiving a note or card. It could really brighten someone’s day.
As soon as I saw the ‘Smile’ sentiment on the So You stamp set, I knew that it would be perfect for some note cards that could be used for any occasion. So today’s Try it Tuesday project is just that – bright and cheery cards that you could quickly make a batch of and send out whenever you pleased.
The great thing about the Whisper White Note Cards and envelopes is that the card bases and the envelopes are already done for you. A blank canvas to quickly layer, stamp or embellish to your heart’s content!
To brighten up the white and as a base layer, I used the Best Year Ever Designer Series Paper which is currently free with every £45 during the Sale-A-Bration promotion. The colours I chose were Calypso Coral, Crushed Curry and Soft Sky.
On top of that are two layers of Whisper White Card stock with the top layer stamped with the Smile sentiment in the corresponding ink.
The layer dimensions of the DSP and card stock are as follows:
8.5cm x 12.2cm
6.5cm x 10.2cm
6cm x 9.7cm
To add a bit of texture, I punched out some small flowers from the DSP using the flower punch which is part of the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack (currently a gift from me if you join my team before 31 March) and adhered them to the top and bottom corners with glue dots.
So there you have it, bright, beautiful and super simple to make – what’s not to love!
