Simon Says Stamp | A Simpler Card Does Not Exist

Simon Says Stamp | A Simpler Card Does Not Exist

Okay, maybe it does, but this card is probably the simplest of all. I was browsing Paper Source yesterday and I came across this Graduation card idea. I was so inspired! Here’s my take on this simplistic design:

CARD DETAILS

What’s great about it, is that it doesn’t need a lot of products, either. All I used was white cardstock, Simon’s pre-printed sentiment strips, Copic markers to add color, and some gems.

Simon Says Stamp | A Simpler Card Does Not Exist

STEP BY STEP INSTRUCTIONS:

  • Die-cut sentiment strips using any banner die from Simon’s Sunshine & Rainbows set. Alternatively, use a paper trimmer to trim strips to size.
  • Color each strip using Copic markers to create a rainbow. I used: Y08, YG01, BG11, B000, BV000, RV00, V12, YR00. Alternatively, you can colors strips using ink pads.
  • Cut white cardstock to 3 3/4 x 5″. Foam mount strips on top. Foam mount panel on A2 white card base.
  • Embellish card with teal gems.

    1. I love your take on the inspiration photo. Your pastels and the differing lengths of the sentiment strips are lovely. I’ve pinned this beauty so I be inspired by you in the future. Awesome card and thanks for the inspiration.

    1. Bravo! I recently ordered a set of the cards for the first time, and I love them. I’ll go back for more.
