2 cards you always need

You always need a thank you card and a general greeting card in your back pocket.   Our talented card making design team member has two great ideas for you to try.   For the thank you card, she’s stamped “thank u” using PSA Essentials Vanilla Peel & Stick stamps and the “U” from PSA Archive Peel & Stick.   She’s stamped using her acrylic blocks and a variety of bright inks – so on trend for this summer!   She’s used a doily, which tends to scream “grandma” to me but used with these bright colors and hip zig-zig paper, the contrast is modern and chic.  

To recreate, you will need the following supplies:

·         Cardstock: Core'dinations
·         Patterned Paper: American Crafts
·         Stamps: PSA Essentials
·         Embossing folder: Cuttlebug by Provo Craft
·         Ribbon: Offray
·         Twine; The Twinery
·         Stick Pin: Jillibean Soup
·         Button and Doily from craft supply

In this hello card, Kim has used PSA Vanilla letters once again.  She’s played with patterned paper and a trio of flowers in bright colors.   It’s the perfect summer card! I do love how she’s rounded the corners of her card at the bottom, it really gives a professional look.  

To recreate this card, you will need the following supplies.  

·         Cardstock: Core'dinations
