Quick and Easy Cards using Hand-Penned Petals and Hand Penned Designer Series Paper

This week I am featuring ideas for using the Hand Penned Designer Series Paper (DSP) and the Hand-Penned Bundle. These are quick and easy cards. The first card is beautifully coordinated between the paper, stamps and dies and an embossing folder. The second card is using the SIP method – stamps, ink and paper.

The card on the left is a SIP card. Great card for beginners. When you are starting out stamping, you may not have all the dies, embossing folders, etc. But, that doesn’t mean you can’t make beautiful cards that stand out!

Card Measurements

  • Basic White Cardstock 4 1/4″ x 11″ and scored at 5 1/2″
  • DSP or Cardstock 3 3/4 ” x 5 1/4″
  • DSP or Cardstock 2″ x 5″
  • Basic White Cardstock 3″ x 4″ and a scrap for greeting
  • Matching DSP 1 1/4″ x 5 1/2″

First Card Recipe

  1. Take the Basic White Cardstock measuring 4 1/2″ x 11″ and place the scalloped die border on the edge of the front-side of your card. Run the cardstock through the Cut and Emboss machine. Clip the very top at the score line.
  2. Prepare the DSP measuring 1 1/4″ x 5 1/2″. Place the scalloped die border on the edge and run it through your Cut and Emboss machine. Be careful here, so that you die cut the right edge. The scalloped edge should be toward the inside of your card. Set aside.
  3. Fold the card base on the scoreline. Your scalloped edge should be on the front right side.
  4. Adhere your DSP measuring 3 3/4″ x 5 1/4″ to the front of the card. If you are using cardstock for this step, you can emboss it with an embossing folder and then adhere.
  5. Adhere your 2″ x 5″ DSP to the left front of the card. If you are using cardstock for this step, you can emboss and then adhere.
  6. Adhere the DSP measuring 1 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ to the right edge of the inside of your card.
  7. Using the Basic White Cardstock measuring 3″ x 4″ stamp your image. Once you have completed stamping your image, either die cut it with the Cut and Emboss machine or “fussy cut.”
  8. Adhere your image to the front of your card using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  9. Using the scrap of your basic white cardstock, stamp your greeting and finish it up with either a die cut or punch.
  10. Adhere a small linen bow to your tag with a glue dot.

SIP Card Recipe

  1. Take the Basic White Cardstock measuring 4 1/2″ x 11″ and cut 1/4″ from the bottom right front of card to the scoreline. Clip the very top at the score line.
  2. Fold the card base on the scoreline. The right front of the card will be 1/4″ less than the backside of the card.
  3. Adhere your DSP measuring 3 3/4″ x 5 1/4″ to the front of the card.
  4. Adhere your 2″ x 5″ DSP to the left front of the card.
  5. Adhere the DSP measuring 1 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ to the right edge of the inside of your card.
  6. Using the Basic White Cardstock measuring 3″ x 4″. Depending on the size of your stamp, you can leave it or cut it to 3″ x 3″ using your paper cutter. Stamp your image.
  7. Adhere your image to the front of your card using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  8. Using the scrap of your basic white cardstock, stamp your greeting and adhere to front of card.
