Do you ever find yourself not having all the supplies you need/(WANT) and asking yourself, 'How am I going to make this greeting card with these limited supplies?'  That was my challenge for the weekend.  Recently I shared a card with you using the Secret Garden stamp set and some patterned paper.  Today, I am back with that same supply list, tweaking it just a bit.

Mission:  Create a Card without using ANY tools – no punches, no big shot, no dry embossing.  Just stamps, inks, card stock and a little ribbon.  Can it be done?  Let's find out.

I am a huge fan of the Print Poetry DSP stacks.  To me, this is paper craft paradise, it is almost as good as a Dr. Pepper and much easier to store than 12 x 12.  Don't get me wrong, I have not thrown out or would even think of dismissing my 12 x 12 DSP.  But this little handy dandy paper stack packs quite a punch.

How much did I use? 2 strips of 1" x 4" and that is all!  You can mass produce this card and use it for any occasion.  

So I paired the Secret Garden stamp set with the Sweet Essentials stamp set, both from Stampin' Up!, this is a perfect set to use when you want any occasion, it has a great variety.

Here is my question to you, if you were to step this card up a notch, what is the first tool you would grab?  In the meantime, I hope that you have enjoyed learning how to make a greeting card with limited supplies!
