Quick and Easy Card: Love & Joy!

By | 11/04/2013

This is a truly quick and easy card using Stampin’ Up!’s Love & Joy stamp from the Holiday Catalog.  My challenge was to design a card using Whisper White, Gumball Green, Coastal Cabana and Real Red.  This is honestly a very odd combination!  I tried to use the Coastal Cabana in the subtlest way possible. My solution:  Stampin’ Up! has a great stamp set called Background Builders.  You get 3 stamps that are about 1″ x 6″ or so and you can stamp them just once or several times to create a fun and fabulous background.  Take a look!

That Coastal Cabana just blends in as if it belongs there!  I actually think that if I used 2 different colors with the Coastal Cabana this card could easily pass for a great wedding card or even a Valentine’s Day or anniversary card.  Can you picture just inking up the Love part of the sentiment and using it on a card of gift tag?
