These cards were super easy to make and I love the layout for any papers.  Just add coordinating cardstock and the greeting of your choice.

All you need for this card sketch/layout is (4) 1″ squares of Designer Series paper and some coordinating colors.  Here is the card recipe:

    • Shaded Spruce:  3 7/8″ x 5 1/8′


All winning card ideas carry the theme on the inside of the card with stamped images.
