Blank Note Cards: How to Make Them Up Fast for Cute & Simple Cards

Do you know how awesome blank note cards can be? You can add designer paper, grab a fun stamp, some twine and presto! Simple note card made. This is my style of card making and perfect if you want to make something quick, or are a beginner card maker.

Blank note cards are the base for these easy cards and then add a small strip of designer paper and stamp a greeting.

The Biggest Wish stamp set is perfect for adding the greeting to a blank note card with any Designer Series Paper. Just coordinate the color ink with the colors in the paper. Make sure to keep scrolling for a free download of a Designer Series Paper color chart!

  1. Your chart is a brilliant idea! It would also be nice if Stampin’ Up would list the matching colours in a LARGER FONT on the back of the packages of DSP. Would you please pass along my request to the company? Thank you.

  2. Really enjoy your videos.
    I prefer to make simple but elegant cards and your style is perfect for me.
    I concur with above comments about using larger fonts.

  3. I think Stampin’ Up should reward you with your ingenious idea.
    You are a creative and very clever lady. Thanks a bunch!
