My Pink Stamper - Blog Hop Challenge

Robyn has been partying it up with her family and her best friend Karlee this week - and is hosting a blog hop. The challenge is to make anything "Birthday." I can always use some simple cards - that are for a last minute birthday gift.

This card is a 4/25X4.25 square
The stamp sentiment is from Stampin' Up
I used Only Orange ink pad from Stampin' Up
I used various paper from my stash - this is all from a Provo Craft Slab
The ribbon is a value ribbon I picked up at Michaels
Then of course, I popped the sentiment up with some dimensionals

One of the tricks I like to do to add some finish is to run my
ink pad along the edges of the paper to give it more definition.
I also like to add coordinating paper inside the card - making the
inside pretty too!

I made a coordinating envelope - just a little big however.
Keep in mind, square envelopes cost a little more to mail
through the postal service - you can always use a rectangle
envelope on your square cards.
I hope you enjoyed this simple card - and consider making some yourself to keep on hand. Better yet - make a bunch, bundle and give them to someone at your local senior center. Grandmas can always use extra cards!

Have a super day,
Fancy Nancy
