Simon Says Stamp - JUST A NOTE Everyday Card

Red embossed Christmas Card with All The Joy sentiment.

Hello Lovelies! This was my second color scheme for this card. After experimenting unsatisfactorily on my own, I tried out the colors on the Tiled Posy Stencil packaging and fell in love! I added a touch of the new Sky color from Simon Says Stamp's Celebrate Release.

Today's card is retro for me in two senses: the color scheme and stencil pattern; the inside is stamped with the sweetest sentiment from the Just A Note Notes stamp set. When I first started card-making, I added sentiments and decorated the inside of my card and I sharing the surprise and joy hidden inside for the recipient.

  1. Select a sentiment from the Just A Note Notes Stamp Set, ink with the Sky Ink Pad and stamp on the interior of a card base.

  2. Use foam tape to pop up the stenciled panel

  3. Adhere the stenciled panel to a card-base

  4. Apply craft glue to the sentiment die-cut and adhere to the stenciled panel

  5. Adhere butterflies with craft glue to embellish the card front


This pattern makes me feel nostalgic in the best way. Somehow I am remembering my grandma's clothes that she wore in the 70s. :-)

Just when I thought I'd seen EVERYTHING that could put done with butterflies. This whirl pattern is so cool and contemporary!

Sometimes the card that is for no particular reason can mean the most. Reach out to your loved ones, they are not always going to show when they need you.

Are you stamping inside of your cards too?
