How to Make Cards That are Jaw Dropping Easy

Learn how to make cards that are jaw dropping easy AND let me show you how to think outside the box a bit for creative ways to use that scrapbook paper, or designer series paper as we call it in the Stampin’ Up! world! Sometimes it’s the unlikely combination of products that make for some pretty quick and easy cards for all occasions!  Christmas paper does not have to be for Christmas cards, especially when we combine it with some “all-occasion” greetings! Ready to learn how to make greeting cards with this easy method?


Today’s simple cards are featuring the Toile Tidings Designer Series Paper (DSP) along with the stamp set from the Looking Up Card Kit!

The past several weeks I have been bringing you some projects that I have previously shared, that is what this one today is.  I was so excited to see that this DSP came back in the Aug-Dec Mini Catalog.

I absolutely LOVE the greeting set that is part of the Looking Up Card Kit.  Once you have made the cards in the card kit, you now have the perfect stamp set to use on other projects!!!

How to Make Cards: Easy Card Recipe

All 4 cards are made exactly the same way.  I just used Garden Green as a layer on one of them instead of the Black.

  • Crumb Cake:  8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ OR 11″ x 4 1/4″ (either size makes the same size card)
  • Designer Series Paper:  5″ x 3 3/4″
  • Designer Series Paper:  Above cards are 1 1/2″ x 3 3/4″ and the 2 cards below are 2″ x 3 3/4″
  • Basic Black:  5 1/8″ x 3 7/8″

That’s it……and then don’t forget the PAPER SAVING TRICK I show in the video for the layering behind the punched image!


Here is an up close view of the one I made in the video:
