Today, I’m thrilled to share a perfect solution for busy women who want to infuse a bit of creativity into their hectic schedules. I’ll show you how to whip up quick note cards that look anything but rushed.

This card uses Card Sketch 3, which is showcased in our Stampin’ Up! 2024-2025 Annual Catalog on page 22. (View our digital catalog here.)

To make this note card even easier to create, I used the new 2024-2026 In Color Designer Paper and pulled the colors for my card from the paper. These colors pair beautifully together and by going with a Basic White accent, created a clean and elegant design.

The gentle floral images added to the elegance of the card and then I just finished it out with a sentiment from the Simply Said Stamp Set. Let me show you how easy it is to create this note card!

Step-by-Step Instructions:

  1. Fold the Basic Whtie cardstock in half to create your card base.
  2. Adhere the three 1-1/4″ x 4-1/2″ strips of the Designer Paper onto the front of your card, spacing them equally as shown in the sample. (Tip: I used Petunia Pop, Summer Splash, and Pretty in Pink but any 3 of the 5 colors will work beautifully!)
  3. Wrap about 24″ of the White Baker’s Twine around the front of the card twice and tie into a bow as shown in the sample.
  4. Stamp the sentiment on the scrap of Basic White cardstock using Black Memento ink and punch out using the 1-3/4″ circle punch. Adhere the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals to finish.

Just grab 2-3 colors from the paper you want to use and pull your coordinating cardstock, inks and any embellishments you’d like! An easy peasy card without any stress – I love when my pretty paper can do the heavy lifting on my cards!😊
