Happy World Card Making Day!

Yes, there really IS a day to celebrate making hand-crafted cards, and it falls on the first Saturday in October. Which happens to be TODAY, October 1st. (Wait, what?!) And to help us celebrate, Stampin' Up! is having a sale on some select items to make it easy to create those cards. Since the sale lasts for five days, you don't need to fret if you're not making a card today!

And also starts a month-long DSP sale. If you buy three, you can get one free (on selected products)!

I wanted to feature a couple of the items that are on sale, and show how quick and easy it is to make a simple card with a matching envelope. The DSP on the card is actually the In Color Envelope paper that is on sale! Once you've cut your 8" x 8" square for making the envelope with the envelope punch board (also on sale!), you'll have some leftovers that can be used on a card. Tomorrow and Monday, I'll have more projects using these goodies, too.

Here's what is on sale!

Here's the "How To"

  3. Stamp tree trunk in Early Espresso toward right side of circle and greeting to left of trunk. Stamp tree background (and leaves beside trunk) with Peekaboo Peach.
