Healing Hugs, Stitches Shapes, Get Well Card, 2020-2021 Stampin' Up! Catalog

I was thinking about making a super quick card because my time was limited today and this is what I came up with.  This card is GREAT for using up some of that Designer Series Paper (DSP) you've been hoarding.  I HAVE stacks of it! 

The base of the card is a folded half-sheet of Whisper White card stock.  

I used the DSP from the "Flowers for Every Season" 6" x 6" stack.  I cut my 6" x 6" piece at 5" x 3". This way I was able to make two cards.  I had used a full sheet of Whisper White so when I cut it in half I had two pieces to make two cards.  Why not, half the work is already done. 

The words are from the "Healing Hugs" set. I stamped them using Poppy Parade ink on Whisper White card stock.  I did stamp two.  Then I die cut them using the circle second smallest "Stitched Shapes" dies.

Next a 5-1/4" x 3-1/4" piece of Poppy Parade card stock was cut.  Again, I cut two.  Before I taped the DSP to the piece. I die cut them with the third smallest scalloped circle die from the "Layering Circles" dies.  I taped the words to the scalloped circle. 

The DSP was taped to the Poppy Parade piece and then that was taped to the front of the card.

After the circled were taped together I added Dimenisonals on the back and I set them in place on the front of the card.  And the card was done.  Super quick and easy.  I am eyeing some DSP on my worktable that I may just cut in to the pieces and have them ready to stamp and assemble when I have some down time.  Down time usually involves me being on the phone on hold. I like to have something to do while I'm on hold. 

Thank you SO much for taking the time to stop by today,

I had never tried that size cut for the DSP before. Looking forward to making several of these for 'Thinking of You" and "Happy Birthday" as well. Thank you for showing us another way to use the 6" x 6" DSP.
