I needed a thank you card the other day and whipped this up in no time.  When I find a card sketch I like, it’s really easy to quickly make a card. If I know the recipients favorite color, I try and choose that color for the card, grab matching cardstock, matching ink and a sentiment and I’m ready to create! I love the Stampin’ Up! coordination of matching inks, cardstock and Designer Series Paper. 

For my card today, I used a base of Gorgeous Grape and then chose a piece of Gorgeous Grape Designer Series Paper from the 6″ x 6″ Brights pack.  The package comes with 40 sheets: 2 each of 2 double-sided designs in 10 colors. Stampin’ Up! colors are divided by families:  Brights, Regals, Subtles, Neutrals, 2017-2019 In Colors & 2018-2020 In Colors and each family has their own pack of 6″ x 6″ paper! I’ve listed all of these packages in my Supply List and if you click on any of the images you’ll be taken to my Stampin’ Up! online store.  You’ll be able to see all the colors in each package, just click “MORE” below the main image.

I used the stamp set Kindness & Compassion for the sentiment and stamped it using Gorgeous Grape ink. The Layering Ovals Framelits were used to cut all three ovals. On the back of the Basic Black Oval, I added Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Using these little foam pieces will add so much to your card! If you’d like to recreate today’s card, you’ll find the measurements below the supply list.
