Nature’s Prints With a Card Sketch

Most A2 cards are made with layers, according to the Pinterest world. When you go searching, you can find layers made with card stock, Designer Series Papers, and dry embossed layers. This card is more a card sketch, with an illustration of measurements.

Take a look at this sentiment, “You’re On My Mind”. This is one included in the stamp set itself and has a great combination of fonts. When you send a card of sympathy, the sentiment on the outside of card, or lack of one, creates the mood of the card. Your handwriting on the inside, and what you say, is the real treasure. The real “Keepsake of Kindness”.

Color combinations will help you make your cards easier if you use Designer Series Papers. DSP uses a set of colors that are Stampin’ Up! and that means your ink and embellishment choices will work every time. In this card, I used a color combination that works with the color wheel method, but misses the mark without DSP. I won’t make this one again, but I will use the measurements.


  • Mango Melody is 2-1/4″ x 5″
  • Daffodil Delight is 1-1/2″ x 3-3/4″
  • The die cut Deckled Rectangle is the fifth from the middle of the set, and works like a 3″ x 4-1/4″ piece, should you have cut the cardstock without dies.

WHAT’S NEXT: In my next set of cards, I’m changing colors, creating an A2 card Clean and Simple (CAS), and making something work on a Note Card & Envelope. Both sizes, created CAS, make great cards for your Kitchen Table Ministry!

  1. The card layout is a great one and color combination is one I wouldn’t have thought of but love it! Is that Shaded Spruce you used for the stamped image? Can’t wait to see what you do with the note cards!
