A SIMPLE CARD


Have you ever heard the saying “A simple hello could lead to a million things?” The same applies to a simple card. Sharing your best wishes could make someone’s day—or it could change their whole life! That’s why we think everyone should have plenty of simple cards on hand—so you’re ready to make a difference whenever you can.


We’ve got a trio of fun, easy cards that you could create in an hour or less. And fancying up a card with a little trick here or there is easier than you might think. For instance, our concept artist used Watercolor Pencils to color the cute flower images on the Bonheur card—no water or blending needed!


To create the You Make Me Happy card, we designed our own patterned paper with tone-on-tone stamping. Note: Though the background images are meant to be flower centers or small clusters of flowers, we used them to create playful design elements. There are no hard and fast rules with stamping. Just have fun with it!


For the Freude card we used classic stamping off to create a dynamic background using a single ink pad. Isn’t it gorgeous? And the technique is so simple and fast.


For all stampers out there: Do you have a craft room full of supplies that you could use in unusual ways? What can you create with minimal supplies to achieve standout results? Whether your work is simple or detailed, post it on social media so we can all be inspired!
