Handmade Friendship Card

Let's make a handmade friendship card today!  This one is so bright & cheerful AND doesn't require any fancy smancy tools – just stamps, ink, and card stock!

We are using one of my favorite stamp sets from the spring catalog with Stampin' Up! called Pretty Perennials.  It comes as a bundle with coordinating dies but we won't be using those today.  This stamp set isn't carrying over into the annual catalog, so be sure to grab it up while you can.

Check out this cute bundle:

The Making

The main thing you really need to know to make this handmade friendship card are the measurements.

  • You will need two pieces of Basic White card stock.  One that's your card base at 4-1/4″ x 11″.  Then a top piece that's 3-3/4″ x 5-1/4″.  This top piece is what you will do your stamping on.
  • For your stamping, I suggest you stamp the word “happy” first and then stamp around it.  That will help with the spacing.
  • Then dig into your scrap bin and go to town.  You will want 7 pieces that are 3/4″ wide.
  • Use your grid paper to secure the colored card stock strips behind the stamped piece to create a finished size of 4″ x 5-1/4″.
  • Layer all this goodness onto your card base.

Just like that, you are done!
