Simple Card Making Ideas

How cute are these mushrooms? They might not be a normal focal point on a handmade greeting card but I think they’re pretty adorable! Made with the Snail Mail stamp set by Stampin’ Up!, this card is sure to make someone smile!

One of my favorite parts of this card is the unusual color combination I used. Here’s the combo:

The Coastal Cabana brightens up the Cajun Craze and Old Olive combination and makes this card perfect for any age or gender. Click here for more color combinations you might like to use in this design.

This card also features an embossing folder to add some depth on the Cajun Craze cardstock strip, but if you don’t have a Cut & Emboss Machine, no worries – the card still looks good without the embossing! Also, I used a piece of Snail Mail Designer Paper behind the main mushroom image, but if you don’t have any of this paper, simple switch it out with Bermuda Bay or even Old Olive cardstock! Here’s how this card was made:
