Three Things Needed for the Perfect Card

We all have them.
Everyone we know has them.
Handmade birthday cards bring a smile to the faces of those we are helping celebrate.
Sometimes, birthdays of our friends and family arrive and we have no handmade card on hand and very little time to get one done.
#simplestamping to the rescue
If you have stamps, ink, and paper and a few minutes, you have the recipe for a special handmade card
You have the time to create an amazing, one of a kind card that says you've spent time thinking about the birthday boy/girl and celebrating another year of their life

 To create this simple design, stamp a main image using markering or another form of coloring.  Then, stamp a sentiment in gray repeatedly around the main image.  Finally add decorative images in color to both the front and inside of the card.

It doesn't take a lot of time or tons of product to make a special and amazing birthday card celebrating your family and friends.  With stamps, ink, paper and a few minutes, you can create a handmade birthday card letting someone know how special they are in your life  What's stopping you?

This card was inspired by the Stamp, Ink, Paper Challege 191 and PP443.  Make sure you head over to the challenges to see the inspiration cards by the design team and other creative entries
