Happy Little Things Quick & Simple Card 

Happy Little Things

For you today, I’m sharing two cards made using the Happy Little Things stamp set and both Flowering Zinnia and Perennial Lavender Designer Series Paper for a very quick & simple card. This is the same stamp set I showcased for the Online Exclusives on Monday. 

On the Simply Zinnia card I wanted to make one that anyone could easily copy where you don’t need any other equipment other than a Paper Trimmer. Then on the Perennial Lavender card I step it up a bit by heat embossing the sentiment and then cropping it with the Happy Little Things Dies. 

Under the “Card Recipe” I did include the items used on the Perennial Lavender Card. Please feel free to post a post of your cards on my FaceBook page. Happy Stamping!

Card Directions

  1. Cut and score all cardstock and papers as listed under Cutting Directions below.
  2. Fold Basic White Thick Card Base in half on the score line, burnish with Bone Folder.
  3. Stamp the upper part of card base from with the outline “wishing” stamp in Berry Burst Ink and then the solid “you” with the same ink.
  4. Adhere Flowering Zinnia Designer Series Paper to card front.
  5. On Basic White Cardstock, 2-1/2” x 3/8”, stamp greeting in Berry Burst Ink. Trim ends and adhere to card front using Mini-Dimensionals, lining up with right edge of card base.
  6. Embellish with Adhesive-Backed Shiny Sequins.
  7. Inside was finished by adding a 5/8” x 5-1/4” strip of designer series paper to 4” x 5-1/4” Basic White Cardstock, adhere to card inside. If stamping a sentiment, stamp prior to adhering to inside.
  8. Envelope flap was finished with 6” x 2-1/2” Flowering Zinnia Designer Series Paper, trim edges after adhering with Liquid Glue.
