Homemade Card For Any Occasion

Homemade Card For Any Occasion - Stamp4Joy.com

This homemade card idea could be used for any occasion.  Why not whip up a few of these easy handmade cards to have on hand when you need a card, but don't have time to make one?

The stamp set I used here is In The Country, which you can select for free with a $50 purchase during Sale-A-Bration.  Two beautiful images that are quick and easy to use.  I colored them in with Alcohol Markers, but you could just leave them as is.

I offset it over a layer of Granny Apple Green cardstock.  The background paper pattern came from the 6″ x 6″ Tea Boutique Designer Paper Collection.  I wasn't sure it would work, but I think it looks great!

The card sentiment came from the Beautifully Happy stamp set.  You can select this set of 17 stamps for free with a $100 purchase.

I used one of the smallest dies from the Tailor Made Tags Dies to stamp the card greeting in Granny Apple Green ink.  Then I used the dark Granny Apple Green Stampin' Blend to color the white baker's twine.

Note:  It doesn't soak through to both sides like it does when you're coloring ribbon.  You'll have to apply the ink a few times, front and back, to get good coverage.  

Here's another handmade all-occasion greeting card I made a number of years ago.
