This card is so much fun – I just love the bold bright colors!

To create this card, I used Card Sketch #11, which you can find in our Card Sketch Library. By using a Card Sketch Layout, you know exactly what size cardstock to cut, then you just grab some stamps and inks that make you smile!

For this card, I used Poppy Parade, Daffodil Delight and Granny Apple Green — such bright, fun colors are perfect for these bold images. You can see another card made with these fun colors here.

Here’s how I made this card, using the Card Sketch:


Supplies Used on the Project:

Project Measurements:

  • Granny Apple Green:  5-½” x 8-½”
  • Basic White:  4” x 5-¼” (2) and 2-½” x 4”
  • Poppy Parade:  2-¾” x 4

Project Instructions:

1. Cut a 5-1/2” x 8-1/2” piece of Granny Apple Green Cardstock; score at 4-1/4” and fold to create base card.

2. Cut 2 pieces of 4” x 5-1/4” Basic White Cardstock and adhere 1 to the inside of your base card.

3. Cut a 2-1/2” x 4” piece of Basic White Cardstock. Using the Poppy Parade Ink Pad, stamp one of the flowers as shown in the sample (about 3/4” from the left side.)

4. Using the Daffodil Delight Ink Pad, stamp the flower again, once to the right and twice to the left, being careful to line up the tops of the Daffodil flowers with the Poppy Parade flower.

5. Using the Granny Apple Green Ink Pad, stamp the stems, then the leaves, adding 3 leaves to the Poppy Parade flower.

6. Layer the White cardstock onto a 2-3/4” x 4” piece of Poppy Parade Cardstock and adhere to base card. Using the Poppy Parade ink pad, stamp the sentiment below the flowers, to the left as shown in the sample.
