A simple card…that has a few little details to make it special…
For my card base, I used the already printed Delightfully Detailed Notecards ready for stamping or layering with the Delightfully Detailed Laser-cut Specialty Designer Paper. There are 20 colorwashed cards in the package -5 each of 4 designs in Mint Macaron and Blackberry Bliss. The Notecards are packaged with 20 Very Vanilla envelopes as well.
I used the Stitched All Around Bundle to stamp the sentiment and cut it with a coordinating die. I used another beautiful die cut from the set of framelits to layer under the sentiment. I popped a circle of Mint Macaron under the sentiment die to show off the details on it. And, then under it all, I used a piece of the lattice pattern from the Delightfully Detailed Laser-cut Specialty Paper.
So many neat items in the Delightfully Detailed Suite….
Check out this video from the SU Home Office sharing the Delightfully Detailed Suite:
Oh, that SU Animal Outings is soooo cute! It just makes me smile:)
I made a Center Step Card with it…
I just stamped on this card but can’t wait to get my framelits this week!!!!
You can’t see in the photo but I used Shimmer Paper for my stamped panel.
It added a little something to the card.
Here is a video I made showing you how to make one:
Note: The Soft Suede border around the image is 2-3/4″ x 3-1/8″ (not 3″),
and I did pass geometry- that is a circle on the front not an oval!

This technique is called the Impossible Card Technique.
So many crafters are uploading different greeting card samples
all over the internet right now based upon an actual playing card trick
called a hypercard trick.
Here is how I made my Impossible Card using the SU Sea of Textures stamp set,
the Under the Sea Framelits, and the Traquil Textures Designer Series Paper:
A bit of die cutting but worth the effort, don’t you think?

Have you seen any of the cards made using the Basket Weave Embossing Folder for a pie top?
They are just so cute! I remember when I got mine, my first thought was a lattice pie top.
As it kept popping up in blogland, I decided to use the idea on this card.
I used the pretty Tutti Frutti and Wood Textues 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper Stacks to create
a rustic background for my Lemon Lime Twist apron. The smallest Stitched Shapes circle and the
new 1-3/8″ scallop circle punch made my cute little pie. I used a scrap of retired Real Red ribbon.
The apple image is found in the SU Picnic with You Bundle.
Seemed appropriate, don’t you think?
