Create - A Card using the Six Gentle Words set

Hi there! It's Suzanne today. 
I wanted to share this easy card made with the bright bold Snap Color Vib from Simple Stories.  I spent some quality time in the Simple Stories both at CHA in January and I love their stuff! (and the fellow who helped me was such a sweetie!)  It was very Scrapbook oriented, but I love to pick and choose from what a manufacturer has to offer.  This paper stole my heart.

You see this "formula" card all over the place these days.  Basically the card is divided in half with two different colours of paper, a ribbon over the joint and some other embellishment layered on the ribbon. Very easy and quick! We can do that!
I tried to make a "Sherry Cheever fabulous messy bow", but I think I need lessons!


  • Cut cardstock (white or off-white) for basic card to 10" x 6.5" and fold in half so card is 5" x 6.5".
  • Cut red cardstock panel to 6.25" x 4.5"
  • Cut polka dot paper to  6" x 2.25"
  • Cut orange zigzag paper to 6" x 2.25"
  • Stamp Create on the same cardstock as you used for the base card using Versafine Hanabero
  • Die cut stamped image using Fancy Frame
  • Attach red polka dot paper along lower edge of red panel, leaving about 1/8" red border showing
  • Attach orange zigzag paper to upper edge of red panel, leaving a 1/8" red border showing.  There may be some overlap of decorative paper.
  • Run a strip of Be Creative tape where the decorative paper overlaps and around the red panel to the back.
  • Tie a bow with lots of loops and attach the loose ends the bow to the strip of Be Creative tape you have just laid. Wrap around to the back and tape down the ribbon ends.
  • Use Pop Dots to attach the Fancy Tag die cut over the ribbon.
  • Attach the red panel with all the decoration onto the card base.
  • Attach three self-adhesive pearls to the bottom right corner.
Thanks for having a look!  Just ask if you have questions.
