Praise e-mail all you want, but there’s no denying that everyone loves getting cards in the mail! Whether it’s for a birthday, a thank you, or just because you’re thinking of someone, sending a little greeting can turn someone’s day around…especially if you make the card yourself. Today’s project comes from K&Company and is a beautiful card that can be used for any occasion. The bright spring colors and flower embellishments are perfect for this time of year! Thanks to Kara Ward for K&Co. for bringing us today’s project!
Whether it’s a birthday, an anniversary, or Mother’s Day, this Happy Times Card is just the thing to send a friend or family member a little love! With some textured paper and a little creativity, you can turn an everyday greeting into something colorful and spectacular!
White card stock
Purple textured paper
Textured card stock (colors of your choice)

- Cut a white card stock card base measuring 4 x 12. Fold in half to create a card.
- Cut 3 ¾ inches by 5 3/4 inches purple textured paper rectangle and center it onto the card stock card.
- Layer strips of textured card stock and pattern paper.
- To create interest, try punching scallop borders and layering them together. With many, they remind me of the scallops on sea shells.
- Add a blue ribbon and embellish with stickers.
- Layer the stickers to create a more dimensional card.
