Sunshine, Freedom & a Little Flower - Karen Hasheck, Guest Designer

Karen Hasheck here today and once again, I am honored to be sharing a card with you as a guest design team member. Quietfire Design’s “Just Living is Not Enough” stamp is the focus of this card and one of my favorites from Suzanne Cannon. I am also sharing a new to me fun fold and here are the directions for this card:

Just Living
1.     Cut an A2 sized (8 ½” x 5 ½”) card base out of yellow cardstock and fold in half.
2.     Using temporary tape, attach the folded card to a craft mat and tape down the sunshine stencil from The Crafter’s Workshop over the card. Sponge Mustard Seed Distress Ink through the stencil holes, then remove the stencil.
3.     Die cut a stitched square with a Lil’ Inker die out of the middle left of the card front and stamp the “Just Living” sentiment in the center of the cut out stitched square.

Wishing you Whimsy
4.     Cut a piece of floral designer paper (mine was from The Paper Studio) 5 inches by 7 ½ inches and score at 2 ½” and 5” on the long side.

5.     Stamp “Wishing You” from the WishingYou Whimsy stamp set on the left third towards the top. Die cut and attach “Love” below it. I had to trim just a bit of the swirls on the Quietfire Designs “Love” so it fit on the folded piece.
6.     Attach the floral piece with adhesive only on the far left side of the folded designer paper to the inside of the card.
A Way With Words Love

7.     Fold the floral dp in thirds and from the front, attach the square sentiment piece so it fits perfectly in the square hole in the front.
8.     Die cut Tim Holtz’s Wildflower out of green and pink cardstock, and attach the flower to the front of the card.

I had so much fun playing with Quietfire Design’s gorgeous stamps and dies and hope you have enjoyed the cards I shared as a guest design team member here.

  1. Awesome, Karen! The card is so cheerful...would bring sunshine to anyone's day!

  2. What a fun card and an interesting fold. I am always on the lookout for new folds that still leave lots of space for writing as I make cards for the whole office to sign, so this fits the bill. Thanks for sharing!

  3. Thanks for the lovely comments ladies! And thanks to Suzanne and Quietfire Designs for the fun opportunity to design with your products and guest dt here!

  4. Thank you, Karen, for sharing such a beautiful card! This would make such a wonderful project that anyone that's pre-teen and up! And I love the idea of DIY cards and gifts! They're more personal and original than anything you can buy in a store!
