This super-easy and very cute quick card to make is one of the greatest justifications that I can make for keeping a well-stocked paper goody supply. In fact, I find myself making it on those rare occasions when I have plenty of time—because it’s so sweet and people love receiving it.

Things You'll Need:

1 piece of white cardstock(5x10 inches)
1 piece of pink cardstock, (4x4 inches)
1 piece of black cardstock (2-1/8x2-1/8 inch)
1 piece of white cardstock (2x2 inches)
Flower stamp
Pink ink
Double-sided tape
Paper cutter


You'll need just five minutes and some standard paper supplies to make this great card to give to someone special.


Directions:

1. Fold the piece of 5x10-inch cardstock in half to create a 5x5-inch square card.


Step 1: To begin, simply fold the largest piece of cardstock in half to create a square card.

2. Apply double-sided tape to the back of the 4x4-inch cardstock. Affix the piece to the front side of the 5x5-inch card.


Step 2: You can affix the pink 4x4-inch cardstock to the front of the square card with double-sided tape.

3. Using the floral stamp, stamp the image onto the 2x2-inch piece of white cardstock with pink ink. Let the ink dry, about a minute.


Step 3: You can stamp any image onto the front of the smaller white cardstock with any color ink. Be certain to let the ink dry completely to avoid any smudges.

4. Next, apply double-sided tape to the back of the 2x2-inch white piece. Affix this piece onto the piece of black 2-1/8x2-1/8-inch cardstock.


Step 4: I like the framing contrast of the darker color underneath the printed image, but feel free to mix and match different color cardstocks for your own card creation.

5. The last step is to place the stamped white and black layers on top of the pink layer, using double-sided tape.

By changing out the colors or stamps, you can easily adapt this for any occasion.
