Creative Inking Blog Hop - Love Always - Simple Anniversary Card

Welcome to the Creative inking Blog Hop

Blog hotWe are a group of Demonstrators that love to share what we do and hope that we can inspire you to create.  Our theme this month is Love Always.  I am doing a VERY SIMPLE Anniversary Card.  This card could be made with any Designer  Series paper or DSP.

Here is my simple card.  You will need a Cut and Emboss Machine and the dies, but trust me this is such a versatile Stamp Set and dies.  The good news is that it is carrying over into the New Annual Catalog.

Here is my card.  I will include the list of supplies below.

Love you always Stampin' Up! Stampin With Diane Evans

By changing up the DSP,  you can get another look.

Love you Alwasy Stampin Up Stampin With Diane Evans

The measurements used in the first card are:

Thick Basic White: 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" scored at 4 1/4"

True Love DSP: 4" x 4"

Basic Black: 1 1/2" x 5 1/2"

Love you Always Foil:  2 1/2" x 2 1/2"

I did up a quick video just to show how simple it is.
