Casually Crafting - October 2021

I'm back with another casual card for the Casually Crafting Blog Hop. We're a group of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators that love to stamp and love to share.  We share card and projects that are simple and easy to create with a few products and are perfect for the beginner and casual stamper.  Our blog hop goes live on the third Saturday of each month.  I hope you'll join us and "hop" around our group to be inspired!

This month the theme is based on a Sketch.  This is a great sketch to showcase Designer Series Paper.  I used the In the Wild Designer Series Paper and Wild Cats Stamp Set for my card.  This paper is stunning and the combination of Evening Evergreen and Soft Succulent is beautiful!

What do you think?  This is so quick and easy!  What a great sketch!

  1. Cut Thick Very Vanilla Card Stock 4 1/4" x 11".  Score at 5 1/2" and fold on score line to form card base.
  2. Cut Soft Succulent Card Stock 4" x 5 1/4".
  3. Cut Evening Evergreen Card Stock 1" x 5 1/4" and adhere in the middle of the Soft Succulent Card Stock using Stampin' Seal.
  4. Adhere Soft Succulent piece to the card base using Stampin' Seal.
  5. Cut 2 pieces of Designer Series Paper 2" x 3"
  6. Adhere 1 piece to the card base about 5/8" from top using Stampin' Seal.
  7. Adhere other piece to the card base about 5/8" from the bottom using Stampin' Seal.
  8. Cut Very Vanilla Card Stock 1/2" x 1".
  9. Stamp sentiment on Very Vanilla piece using Evening Evergreen ink.
  10. Adhere to bottom right corner of the bottom Designer Series Paper using Dimensionals.
  11. Adhere 3 In Color Jewels
You can find all of the supplies for this card in my Online Store
